Residential Renovation
Modal provided excellent early engagement with us on a Wellington house renovation project. They communicated quickly and were very responsive, visiting and patiently talking us through the options and steps.
Nick Morten
New Builds
Modal was very responsive & quick to take on feedback, and to produce/iterate plans - the council accepted the plan documentation with very few change requests. The resulting tiered house layout has resulted in excellent all-day sun to all properties, as well as plentiful parking.
