I found Herniman Group  easy to work with and very personable. I was impressed with the professionalism and attention to detail displayed by senior staff. We were especially appreciative of how they looked after us, guiding us through the design process. They carefully considered our design brief, at the same time ensuring that the design met our budget requirements. We are delighted with the design outcome. I can recommend with confidence the Architectural and Interior Design skills of the Herniman team.

Our first and most ambitious project in this country required the practised guidance of an experienced architect. After much searching, it was the professionalism and calm assurances of John and his team at Herniman Group that convinced us they were up to the task. Throughout the development process we valued that design discussions and challenges were negotiated together, where we felt they continually acted in our best interests. We are glad to have found such fine architects – great people to work with and we will surely engage them in future projects.

Reliable, consistent expertise you can count on.

The Herniman Group was fundamental to the success of our property development and sale. The experience with navigating council processes and ability to talk me down from the ledge when things got difficult was above and beyond my expectations. Drawing on the expertise and top-notch professionalism made what the development journey absolutely worthwhile. I would highly recommend John and his team without hesitation.
