SOME OF OUR WORK

MEET SOME OF OUR CLIENTS

"What we say is one thing - what our clients say is more important..."

“We had quite ambitious plans for our new office fitout and were concerned that the price didn’t blow out and also that we ended up with a result that would represent our company and one we’d be proud of. We couldn’t have been more impressed with the guys from Focusplan. They listened carefully to our brief, spent time to understand our needs and made many cost-cutting suggestions that did not reduce the impact of the fitout. We were also hugely impressed with the additional ideas that they brought to the table and the genuine feeling that we were working on this as a team. Focusplan were as determined as we were to have a fantastic end result. Many of the design features and finishing touches that really make the whole thing work were suggested by Focusplan. During the process, work ran to schedule and expectations were met, and after the job was completed any little issues were dealt with quickly and professionally. It was so refreshing to actually enjoy the project and have an end result we are very proud of. We turned a tired old office space into a work environment that staff love and visitors are impressed with. We would not hesitate to recommend this company and their key people."

 

- Aaron Toresen, Managing Director

"Focusplan were a pleasure to deal with. Managing an office refit of this size for a Call Centre can be stressful, however, Jonathan and the team made it easy with great communication and planning the whole way through.  Nothing was ever too much trouble, they were incredibly flexible. The Focusplan team took the time to understand the business and what kind of space we wanted to create for our people.  They came up with some brilliant ideas and gave an enormous level of comfort the whole way through.   They have my 100% recommendation."

 

- Maria King, Operations Manager

"REM SYSTEMS had our purpose-built Head Office and Warehouse facility constructed in 1990 and over the past couple of decades, time and fashion has taken a toll on the appearance of our building. Therefore a few years ago we contracted Focusplan to refurbish the interior and most recently the exterior of our building to better serve our requirements and update us with a more contemporary vision for our daily work environment. At all stages of our refurbishments, we have been very impressed with both the professionalism and quality that Focusplan have been able to provide us. Focusplan have been excellent to deal with, genuine, and always keeping us in the loop as the planning and then implementation of the work has progressed. We would have no hesitation recommending Focusplan as we cannot fault the experience we have had over the three refurbishments they have performed for us to date."

 

Shirley Schollum, Director

"Jonathan and Ben Herd are the most professional, organised and efficient designers and project managers I have met.  They go the extra mile and think about every detail and come up with the ideas in design and fitout to suit the client.  Their workmanship was faultless from beginning to end in regard to our purpose-built surgery.  I would recommend them to anyone."

 

Barbara Hare, Practice Manager

"Focusplan has supplied design and fitout services to STIHL for over 12 years. They have always had practical and innovative solutions, always delivered on time and to the highest quality standards."

 

Daniel Sloan, Finance and Administration Manager

"We have had the pleasure of working with Focusplan over the past 7 years and during this time we have found their approach to be very professional.  They provide expert guidance and project management for our business requirements. From the small office jobs to larger relocation requirements as well as new fitouts for expanding spaces, they have assisted us with them all. Highly recommended."


- Jane Walker, Facilities Manager.

 

"Focusplan worked closely with us from the very start, interviewing staff to understand differing requirements, before drawing up plans for our new open plan layout and managing all stages of the development.  The plans were carefully tailored and developed to suit our diverse workforce requirements and incorporating a range of workspaces from quiet work areas to collaborative spaces.  We found Focusplan open to our ideas and willing to work together to develop our new environment. 

OCS had a tight budget which Focusplan worked within, sourcing economical, and in some cases, custom-made furniture and fittings.  The transition from the old to the new working environment took place over two weekends.  The team from Focusplan were amazingly efficient and were always on site to ensure everything went to plan and to adjust and follow up where required. 

I can highly recommend Focusplan, Jonathan Herd and Ben Herd for their amazing dedication in making our office a pleasure to work in."


- Liz McLeish, Executive Assistant

"On behalf of Pharmaco (NZ) Ltd I wish to express our gratitude to Jonathan, Mark and Ben of Focusplan for the superb management and design of the refurbishment of our new offices in Mt Wellington.

The Focusplan team, some 9 months later, still call us each month to check and resolve any issues that may exist with our building. I am pleased to say there are very few issues and are often of a very minor nature, which is a testament to the attention to detail from Focusplan.

We would highly recommend Focusplan for projects of similar nature to our own."

 

- David Dowsett, Chief Operating Officer.

"As a company we would like to thank you for the tremendous efforts you have gone to in refurbishing our offices.

What we have now is an office that all our staff are proud of and a boardroom/conference room that is equal or surpasses many of our corporate clients. We show off our premises whenever we have the opportunity.

Without your consistent eye to detail and your enthusiasm to get the job done to the highest standard, I am sure we would not have the offices we do today."

 

- Andrew Hunt, Managing Director

"We have worked with Jonathan, Ben and their team on several occasions and have been impressed by their ability to provide an excellent working environment from planning through to construction. They continually deliver on time and within budget with a minimum of fuss. We would not hesitate to recommend using Focusplan."


- Kaye Curran, Practice Manager.

"We have worked with Focusplan several times over the years during fitout changes to our previous office space.  We contracted them again with our recent move to new premises and they have done a fantastic job - we are thrilled with the result. They have really listened to our requirements, given valuable input and advice and through that I think we got everything exactly right. Jonathan encouraged us to implement sit-stand desks for all our staff which they are loving and are already proving to be a great investment. Jeremy has worked with us continuously around design and colour choices and ensured we stayed on track with our budget. Ben and his team completed all work to a high standard and on time and went above and beyond what was required on the last day before the move, doing extra jobs for us that really helped us out."
