Gold Sponsor Profiles

Thank you for your support!

Choice Design

The team at Choice Design are proud to support the Waimakariri Winter Festival as it’s a wonderful event that helps bring the friendly community of North Canterbury together, and shares our community spirit with visitors from beyond the Waimakariri District. The best thing about the Winter Festival is that there is something for everyone! Make sure you come and say ‘Hi’ to us at our stall on the day!

In early 2017, Joe, Josh and Ilaisa were all working together as cogs in the wheel of a large organization, when they realised they had something special to offer the people of Canterbury.
Thus, Choice Design was born, and they couldn’t be happier doing what they love; designing homes and helping Cantabrians.

Locally owned and operated in Rangiora, Canterbury, we separate ourselves from our competitors by taking on any job, no matter how big or small.

- Realistic Timeframes
- Affordable Pricing
- Great Communication
- A happy you!

We offer a no obligation consultation, so we can provide you with a quote – whether it be for a new build, renovation, extension, retail/office space, or even a farm shed! Get in touch with us so we can help make your dreams a reality. or 021 2 CHOICE
