Operating own Architectural Design Office enables us to provide clients with rapid, cost effective value engineered design solutions for their projects, including structural engineering and site geotechnical services.

TCS design capability extends to structural steel and concrete structures with specialist expertise in market leading glue laminated and engineered timber construction solutions.


Design and construct offers clients not only a cost effective way to achieve the design outcomes they want, but also offers a faster path to that end and results in a design that complies with the client’s budget.


This value engineering path provides benefits for  both the designer/contractor and the client:

  • The Designer / Contractor is able to employ the best construction solutions for a particular project or site and avoids having to manage design details that create future construction challenges.

  • The client gets a fit for purpose design that is within budget and has the guarantee of a chain of responsibility from design through to construction that is often missing in the traditional design – tender – construct process.


TCS 3D design programs link directly into our prefabrication detailing and factory cutting process’s ensuring accuracy of components and logistical completeness of all exported components.


This process from Design through to Logistical management to site is the strength of the TCS Design / Supply / Construct business model.

Much of the needs throughout the Pacific and wider under developed world relate to housing and education and healthcare needs.


A core focus of our aid efforts have been around the development of both social housing solutions and education facilities.

Our standard Education portfolio include classrooms, administration buildings, ablution blocks and teachers housing as based around proven base line needs for this sector of the communities.

TCS offers specialised training and upskilling opportunities for the construction of these social housing and education developments.

Social Housing

Social Housing throughout New Zealand and the world is a demanding need with many varied levels of quality, expectation and social needs.


Our experience in design and delivery of fit for purpose social housing needs, we believe, is second to none. We have design solutions that suit very basic housing needs for some Pacific regions that wish to build their own houses using prefabricated components and are designed to allow the home to be enlarged at a later date or improved as the family can afford it.


Other social housing needs extend to large housing developments for government bodies, large housing compounds for company staff needs and specific housing for industrial developments, education and healthcare workers.


Social housing in New Zealand is an area of growth where some of the lessons learned from  social housing design work throughout other parts of the world can be applied in New Zealand  to bring cost and durability benefits to our own national housing needs.
