Alex Ferrier has been in the building industry since leaving high school. Alex started working as an Apprentice Carpenter and moved on to working on various types of construction from small additions to new commercial buildings.
After a while Alex realised he enjoyed the design work more than the actual construction and after an injury that prevented him from continuing with on-site work, Alex started working for himself doing design work, drawing up plans and specifications in preparation for Building Consents, and submitting these to local councils.
Alex can take the project from concept or ideas, to completion of the plans with the issue of a design Certificate, or continue on to take the project through the Building Consent application process, ready to hand the completed Building Consent to the client or builder ready to start building. There are times when we are requested to put the project out to tender on behalf of the client and make a tender recommendation once tenders have been submitted.
Alex can liaise with additional specialists, where this is required by the design, taking the load off the client trying to manage various contractors. We also manage some projects for clients from the tender process through to the issue of the Code Compliance Certificate by Council. Alex is also an Agent for a range of Garage Door vendors and can supply and install all types of garage doors, and specialise in Sectional Garage Doors and Automatic Door Openers.
Alex has achieved the following qualifications in the Building Consulting profession:
- Licensed LPB, with a Design 2 class license
- National Diploma in Building Control Surveying (Small Buildings)
- National Diploma in Building Control Surveying (Medium & Large Buildings)
