Having investigated more than 700 buildings,  you can trust us to deliver a long-term solution and maximum value with a plan tailored specifically to you and your project. Our in-house architects also work closely with our technical team. Together they design solutions that are based on sound scientific understanding while still being as beautiful as they are functional. Our approach begins with seamless, practical advice and information. We then work with you to find the best solutions for your building and the people who still live or work there.

Alexander & Co. Ltd employ licensed building practitioners (LPBs). LBPs are designers, carpenters, brick and blocklayers, roofers, external plasterers, site and foundations specialists who have been assessed by the Building Practitioners Board of New Zealand to be competent to carry out work essential to a residential building's structure or weathertightness.
