DTCE has been carrying out the design and assessment of residential structures for over three decades. Over this time, we've built up a network of contractors, architects, and consultants that can work together to help complete your project on time and on budget. With our long history in the Wellington region, we have extensive experience in providing solutions tailored specifically for local Wellington regulations and geography. 

More recently, we've expanded our scope of services to include stormwater drainage requirements and pre-purchase house assessments. This recent expansion adds to our growing list of in-house engineering consulting services here at DTCE.

We have a wide range of expertise that includes, but is not limited to:

  • Small house alterations and wall removals

  • New house design

  • Deck design

  • Carports

  • House settlement reports

  • Seismic assessments
