CREATING VIBRANT AND HEALTHY WORKSPACES

Creating great places to work since 1966

We have been in business for over 50 years and are one of New Zealand’s leading office fit-out company. Here’s what our many clients have to say about working with DB Interiors.

Clients We've Worked With

“DB interiors recently completed 3500sqm of landlord and tenant works over 4 full floors in one of the commercial buildings that Barfoot manage. Db completed the project within timeframe and within budget being very professional and efficient. They were involved with the total demolition of the site, complete base build and full fit out for the tenant. Kenneth and Clinton from Db were always in communication and proactive to ensure the project went smoothly from start to finish of the project I would highly recommend Kenneth and Db Interiors for any projects and we will be definitely using them in the future for any projects we have upcoming.”

Tyrell Snelling

Barfoot & Thompson Commercial Property Management

DB Interiors has managed fit out works for AMP Capital on a building in Auckland. The process through original concept, design, pricing and eventual project management was handled very professionally and having all those services under the DB banner made the process very smooth and easy to navigate. They have a strong team with well experienced individuals that can deliver requirements across the board and also have enough support to manage any situations that may arise.

Craig Coote

Senior Asset Manager

“DB Interiors have been instrumental in assisting with the leasing of a tricky vacancy in my property at 5 High St.
The character tenancy was empty and did not have a meeting room. DB did some render showing indicative layout options, and provided these very quickly and cost effectively. I could then share these with the agents and shortly thereafter we got the tenancy leased.
DB then carried out the small amount of works that the tenant required in a professional manner.

Whilst this was a small job for them in terms of both renders and works, it added a lot of value to the leasing process and therefore to the owners.”

Richard Bowker

Director

“We entered into an RFP for the refit and extension of our office. DB Interiors provided a proposed design and a quote that was very competitive and within our expectations. They planned out the project in some detail and managed the project over one of our busiest times of the year, while still enabling us to utilise the remaining office space and facilities. We had a dedicated and very accommodating project and site manager which made the management of the project through on central point much more pragmatic and effective. Like any project, once you start there is always things you want to vary and these contract variations were dealt with in a very constructive manner with transparent and fair pricing. In addition the loose ends to wrap-up the project were also followed up, even when some were probably outside the project scope or late variation requests. Overall we were very pleased with the work undertaken by DB interiors. Our team love the new office environment and visitors to our office appreciate the new facilities and fresh look.”

Colin Henderson

Managing Partner

“Eve’s Engaged db Interiors towards the end of last year after working with them on a number of previous successful projects. We tested the market and found them to be competitive in terms of what we were requiring. The team were excellent in the process of council consenting and managing other tenants through this process. We the discussed the target delivery to be pre-Christmas which was achieved with practical completion and CPU from council.There were some hiccups from Council, not of the making of db Interiors in any way, but the db team dealt with them without hassle or fuss and got the job done in time. They helped to refine the design and value engineer finishes to maintain our desired look and feel, and manage the project easily from a budget management point of view. The teams technical knowledge meant we had no concerns with the external building entry/change and all compliance was handled smoothly. The way they handled the landlord works in conjunction with our works was brilliant. They made sure the timeline wasn’t affected in anyway and worked through the breakdown in costings so we could clearly articulate this to the landlord. The communication from start to finish was great and Jared worked really well with the team to make sure the small number of defects were dealt with accordingly. The team at db did a very good job and it has been a very successful partnership for all parties. In essence I would highly recommend db Interiors for any future works.”

Mark Macky

Director – Eves in the North

“We found the quality of the furniture to be of a high standard and throughout the purchasing and installation process we were keep well informed of progress.”

Mike Hughes, Site Manager

Northland Regional Corrections Facility

“We retained your firm again as we enjoyed working with you when you completed our prior office fit out nine years ago – that fit out proved to be very functional and effective for the full nine years and it is still in excellent condition after intensive use. There is always some trepidation when a new office fit out is commissioned as to whether or not is will ‘work’. We utilised your design and layout process because the previous fit out had been so successful and accepted your recommendations for equipment, layout, colour coordination and office functionality. The Pure workstation configuration is practical, functional and aesthetically pleasing. The results speaks for itself – our team members are all readily enjoying the new environment. We have received many compliments from clients as to layout and colour coordination and this has greatly eased the transition to a new location.”

Peter Byers

“They took over a bare attic and delivered a finished product, fully furnished, on time and on budget, that we believe is now the finest office in the Far North!”

M W Simm, Executive Director

“I know I speak for myself and the Board of Directors when I say we have been blown away by the transformation of our offices and Chapel. From the outset we put some very tight parameters on you and your team to work within, you made a difficult job seem easy. Initially you managed to come up with a new concept for our refreshment ‘Iounge that utilised the current layout but enhanced the usability of the space and modernised the whole room . This has proved to be very successful with many favourable comments regarding the furnishings and decor.”

Gary Taylor

“We would like to express our appreciation and thanks for our new office environment. The new “System 70″ partitioning and management suite modules work extremely well in our office. It has given us more workspace and a quieter work environment. The staff enjoy their own “offices” with more workbench and storage space to utilise. Employee productivity has increased which has been a real benefit to us. We are grateful for your services in providing a smooth transition from our open plan office to the new individual workstation office plan. Our clients have also remarked on the new office layout, which gives both our employees and clients more privacy.”
