Craig and the team at CMC Design are nothing short of Impeccable - in every sense of the word.

We were fortunate enough to have them create a beautiful bespoke space at our Mobil Service Station... giving them a task that many would quite possibly shy away from but these guys NAILED IT!!

Sian provided flawless communications & with such a happy vibe, Craig and the lads just hit deadlines that for many would seem impossible... there are no words that could describe just how happy I am with the entire process & their workmanship totally speaks for itself

If ever you need a job done - CMC Design is the ONLY place to go ... these guys do EVERYTHING and to high specifications.

It is with pleasure that I write this testimonial on the new cabin sole recently installed by CMC designs on the sailing vessel Rapture. The old sole on the vessel was at its end and needed to be replaced. I hesitated to replace it because it involved a significant effort of time and money to rip it out of the boat and install durable replacement sole. Nevertheless, I contacted several contractors for estimates to replace the sole. I recall one contractor declined to provide a quotation after seeing what was involved to install the new sole. The quotations I did receive varied over a wide range. Because of the complexity of project I new that quotations on the low end had underestimated the scope of the project. I decided that paying more to have the work done right was money well spent. CMC Designs was clearly qualified and possessed the resources to take on the project and understood what it would involve to manufacture and install a new sole of top quality.  I could not be happier with the outcome of the new sole. I was greatly impressed by Craig, Nick and others at CMC Designs. The quality of their workmanship was outstanding.

Hi Craig. 

Thank you very much for all your effort on Tehani. I appreciate your company’s excellent workmanship and follow-through on getting everything right. I feel she looks like new and I’m sure her new owners will look after her well. 

Best regards.

"I had the pleasure of working with Craig at CMC Design on a large project in the Bay of Islands.
The property was unique and called for a true craftsman to deliver cabinetry of the utmost quality.
Craig and his team worked to a fairly tight timeframe considering the scale of the project, yet delivered a beautiful and flawless final product.
His attention to detail and constant communication made him a pleasure to work with.
I would have no hesitation in recommending him for any projects where such a high level of detail is required."
