We were put in contact with Dave by a real estate agent. We purchased a 3 brm 1 bathroom property with a non- consented garage to sleepout conversion connected to our house. Dave gave us a letter for the bank to say it should be able to get a COA and he and his trade contacts did all the work required, submitted the Certificate of Acceptance application to council and now it is a legal habitable space comprising of 4 brm and 2 bathroom. Dave have done an amazing job. We have no problem at all

Dave Smith: Thanks for the feedback Anh and Steven. Your renovations have made a lovely home. Good luck for the future.
I purchased a modest unfinished small house. It had an old outstanding building consent,build information was missing. I hired an architect to make the house  bigger. By not amending the original historic consent & adding new building works to it. I started a new building consent to do the build. Unbeknown to us the old building consent with no CCC stuck to the property file & proved difficult to get signed off. Dave succeeded where others failed & helped us get this resolved & signed off.

Dave Smith: Thanks for the feedback Jenny, It was my pleasure to help out.
Dave has worked with the council on our behalf to obtain two CCC’s for a minor dwelling built 18 yrs ago and an addition done over 25 yrs ago. He dealt with all problems that were uncovered – electrical, cladding queries and a major drainage issue to name some. He kept us updated throughout the process and always had the skills and contacts to tackle everything. Dave did a fantastic job; we could never have achieved this so seamlessly and quickly on our own. Thank you Dave!

Dave Smith: Thanks for the feedback Toni and Richard, lots of variety in this job from drawing plans to digging trenches labouring with the drainlayer and everything in between. All my pleasure.
Dave is great. Initially made contact for help with a COA but after talking it through we decided it was best to replace the original bathroom. Dave did most of the work himself, even after hours. Great communication and kept us updated with timeframe and cost. Definitely worth a call if you want honest and helpful advice for dealing with council. Thanks Dave.

Dave Smith: Thanks for the feedback Joe and Luke, All my pleasure. Looking good and ready for marketing.
Dave was fantastic. Right away expectations were set, timeframes were realistic and understood as were the costs. He was always available to address any concerns or help with guidance when necessary. He was on site when needed and always timely. He even took a load of rubbish to the tip for us !! Talk about above and beyond. I'll have no trouble recommending Dave and would go on to say even if we didn't get our COA, that I'd have still written this same review. He did get it for us though :-D

Dave Smith: Thanks for the feedback Tori.
I struggled to find someone locally (Otago) to help with our COA issues and contacted Dave for advice after finding this listing on trademe. He ended up being able to help remotely and took a lot of the stress out of the process, dealing with the council and organising inspections etc. I would not hesitate to recommend his services. Thanks Dave!

Dave Smith: Thanks for the feedback John, There's a first time for everything and sorting a COA in the South Island by satellite was a first for me. I think I would have struggled without your input so definitely a team effort.
Absolutely outstanding service. Knowledgeable, up to date and reliable. Highly recommend Dave to anyone needing help with building COAs. Pleasure to deal with - Thanks Dave!

Dave Smith: Thanks Joanna, all my pleasure, keep up the good work.
Thanks CCC building services for all your help in sorting out and gaining CCC for our confusing factory office extensions in a competent way. To anyone out there. Dave took on the project of the company and worked his way through our unfinished 2006 building consent dealing with Auckland Council, organizing professionals and tradesman, drawing amended plans for our missing walls, added stairs, changed windows, plumbing, drainage, he organized fire reports. All done in a friendly manner.

We added a bathroom and laundry that needed a Certificate of Acceptance. Some work was done by us, some by the previous owners. Dave was professional, very helpful. We would recommend this service to anybody in need of a CoA/CCC.

Dave Smith: Thanks Vasily, Nice working with you.
Dave was excellent! We’ve just purchased our first house and he went above and beyond to find out about the code of compliance for the property and was so impressive with how he investigated all the details from the builder of the house and the council etc. He found out so much information for us which helped us make the decision to buy the house. Thanks so much!!! Would highly recommend.

David Smith: Thanks Jeremy and Lisa, You were most welcome. Good luck with your new home.
I’ve recently purchased a house with a lot of unconsented work. Included a enclosed veranda, incorrectly installed log burner and a new bathroom all of which needed immediate repairs and Certificate of Acceptance. Not only did Dave get the required paperwork sorted, saving us the hassles of dealing with the red tape, he also arranged with his contacts to have electrical work done as well as the roof repairs which was required. HI highly recommend his services to anyone requiring compliance work.

David Smith: Hi Pras, Thanks very much for the review. You and your family were very easy to deal with, you made good decisions and you have ended up with a lovely solid house. Good luck for the future.
I was put in contact with Dave through a consultant and I could not rate him highly enough. I had to obtain a COA on our commercial property and Dave made the process seem so painless!! He took over the matters, worked closely with the council, liaised with all contractors and above all he did this without a hiccup! His precision, turnaround time and his ongoing followup is definitely a standard that has raised the bar altogether. Dave will be my "go to" for all COA matters. Hands down the best.

David Smith: Thanks Nadine, My pleasure, if you have any more questions feel free to contact anytime.
I contracted Dave from CCC building Services to make ‘as built drawings’ for our house in Blockhouse Bay and he did a great job. We’re extremely happy with the job completed by him. Very professional and easy to deal with and the job was done quicker than expected. We would have no hesitation in recommending customers to use CCC building services.
