Centre design

Every great design begins with an even better story

Whether it’s creating a new building on the site, adding to, altering or converting existing buildings, our designs reflect you vision for the centre. Our Architects work with you to understand your specific needs and design your centre to meet Council and Ministry of Education requirements.

The design of an early childhood education centre directly impacts on the learning experience of the child. Every inch of space is important in optimising your centre for their specific needs.

We know the ins and outs of childcare specific design, including how to correctly interpret licensing regulations to ensure optimum licence size; something that’s not always a given.

Bulk and location plans

Our Architects prepare draft plans showing how the building would be located on the site, the size of the play areas and the number of parking spaces available. At this stage we can identify the potential licence size of the centre.
