Made for Living
In mid-May 2022, the initial contact with BCG GROUP was established through a telephone conversation to kickstart discussions with regards to a 12 unit townhouse development. The clients expressed their preference to meet in person, emphasising the importance of ensuring that BCG was the right fit for their needs before sharing their plans. This cautious approach was motivated by the fact that the clients’ chosen construction team for the project couldn’t handle multiple builds and consequently withdrew. This left the developer in a challenging position, prompting the clients to search for an alternative construction company to collaborate with and bring the project to completion.
Late June, formal introductions and the initial discussion took place at the BCG GROUP office. This face-to-face meeting allowed both parties to become acquainted, fostering an open forum for in-depth discussions regarding BCG’s company background and team, services, process, and project management for the construction phase. It was also an opportunity to address any questions or concerns. During this meeting, the client confirmed that 8 out of the 12 units had already been pre-sold. Additionally, the client shared the approved Resource Consent and EPA for the 12-unit development, emphasising their determination to swiftly secure a builder who could bring their vision to fruition. As a result, site visits were scheduled for the next day to provide additional reassurance by showcasing BCG’s completed multi-unit projects.
The 12 unit townhouse development commenced end of 2022 and was successfully completed mid September 2023.

A New Life for an Existing Property – Design, Subdivide & Build
BCG GROUP were appointed to construct three dwellings on a site with an existing dwelling, resulting in four dwellings across the site; three terrace houses at front, retaining wall within front yard, shared vehicle accessway.
Working in partnership; BCG ARCHITECTURE were entrusted to produce and submit final drawings that met the required building, landscaping and impervious area coverages required to successfully obtain Council approval.
BCG CONSTRUCTION set the groundworks phase of the project in motion; clearing of site, bulk fill and driveway preparation, civil works, install new public stormwater and wastewater extensions/connections to utilities and private common vehicle accessway, which provided the platform for establishing the foundations for the terrace houses to start taking shape.
The housing is purposefully designed to fit the site to allow for front yard landscaping and protect the privacy and daylight access for the neighbouring sites by respecting the yards, height and alternative height in relation to boundary standards. Passive surveillance of the street is provided through front glazing and the outdoor spaces to the front of the dwelling. Although the garage door is at the front, it is not dominating as it is setback just over three metres from the front boundary and as it is a single garage, the door does not take up a large part of the front facade.
The building with modulation and differing heights provide interest and break up the longer elevations. On the southern facade, the third storey is set back with roof forms at the second storey. On the northern face, the dwellings have been differentiated with different setbacks and decks that are inset so as not to reduce privacy for the adjacent units. Varied materials used; brick, shiplap and glass help to provide interest and both differentiate the units and visually break up the length, helps to mitigate any dominance effects and ensure the development does not appear overly dominant on the site.
The dwellings use the alternative height to boundary measurement at the front and with the narrow end facing the street so that it presents the street as a single three-storey dwelling. Any feeling of dominance towards the street has been reduced as part of the building at the front is two-storey in character and the design uses different cladding to add interest to the facade. Further, the front unit can be accessed from the street by using pedestrian access, while the rear two dwellings also have a separate pedestrian access provided from the street. This helps to provide wayfinding and a positive interaction with the street. The glazing at the front, as well as the balcony and outdoor space at the front of the site, helps to provide passive surveillance over the street. Further, vehicle accessways are able to be used safely with no risk to the wider environment, pedestrians or any neighbouring persons using their own vehicle access.
The developer/investor and residents have reassurance and peace of mind in knowing that their homes have been constructed using materials confidently chosen for their classic aesthetic appeal and durability.
Speaking of material specs; joinery is residential grade powder coated aluminium and head flashings, safety glazing, pine decking with aluminium & glass balustrade, James Hardie Linea cladding and Oblique weatherboards vertically fixed, MetalCraft fascia, roofing gutter systems and pressed metal roofing tiles, timber & steel fencing, Midland Brick in AZTEC traditional arctic white, outdoor hot water cylinders, timber roof rafters to fit skillion roof, earthwool insulation, laminated timber flooring, Feltex carpet, Bosch appliances, security and fire alarms reinforce the robustness of the terrace house dwellings.

Golf View – 7 townhouses built to rent with the perfect balance of luxury and convenience.
James is in the building industry himself; he runs own company The Renovation Team, which assists investors in adding value to their rental properties. His aim is to continue building rental property complexes until he has built up enough of a portfolio. He also aims to use these as a method to educate other investors who want to do the same. He is very active in the investor market and has a large network of contacts who are looking to invest in their property.
When BCG initially approached James, he stated that he was interested in building rental properties for himself and the investor market, but his team were only geared for renovations. He needed to partner with a professional and reliable company that specialised in turnkey terrace house new build construction. James had already gone through extensive planning with his architect and was looking for the right building company with experience in that market.
In the planning stage, BCG team met with the architects to discuss more efficient ways to build the complex, which would reduce costs and complexity. For example, building on an elevated and sloping site with approximately 7 metres difference between top and bottom lots, excavation, retaining wall, backfill, and laying stepped foundations to maintain structural integrity. James took our recommendations on board and the plans were changed accordingly. We were able to affect these changes early on in the process and thus add value in terms of building knowledge.
In terms of design, it was important to James that the front two larger properties were the ‘flagships’ for the complex, so a lot of care was taken to get the layout right and create a great first impression. This also meant ensuring that the street appeal for the front two properties was considered. During the selection process James, his wife, and their designer met at BCG offices to select materials. Time and care were taken to select quality materials with great impact and a consistent theme throughout. Solely focusing on rental properties, choosing the right materials was key – needed to have longevity, look good, aim more toward the high end tenant, so fittings and fixtures were at times upgraded from standard to give a more high-end finish.
The overall design and features of these townhouses aim to provide a comfortable and contemporary living experience for the residents, with an emphasis on both practicality and aesthetic appeal. Now completed, each townhouse boasts good sized bedrooms, plenty of wardrobe space, fully tiled bathroom, walk in shower and underfloor heating system. Also open plan kitchen and living space with timber flooring, high stud ceiling and large double glazed windows allowing infinite natural light to stream in. Outside, a low-maintenance private garden, undercover tiled deck perfect for hosting barbecues and engaging in other outdoor activities. Resident car parking with EV charging connections located in the middle of the complex.
Exterior materials: James Hardie Linea Oblique Weatherboard (Dulux Adios & Grey Master), brick veneer (Chalk), Corrugated Colorsteel Endura Longrun Metal Roofing (Ironsand) used to create an attractive and durable façade. Aluminium joinery, concrete driveway and permeable paving also add to the overall aesthetic and functionality of the complex.
Interior materials: bathrooms and ensuites are adorned with Stella Grey tiles for a sleek and modern look, kitchens feature Florencia Bianco splashback tiles, beautifully made stone benchtops, and dark kitchen cabinetry to add a touch of elegance to the cooking area.
“Looking back this was the right decision. We have accomplished. Nice high quality, good numbers and really enjoyed the journey with BCG. This is a whole new thing, type of build. The network of people introduced to this project have all been complementary. Working on next project already”
