Building consent & design service
To provide a cost effective specialised deck building and building consent service by way of a national network of Deck-King franchise builder teams and approved licensed designers. Each builder team and designer will have rights to Deck-King referrals in their chosen region, targeting medium to high end residential projects. We believe this is an excellent opportunity for designers to develop an additional income stream and build relationships with clients that will bring in other work.
The design service has been primarily developed to supplement the Deck-King franchise builder teams, to offer a convenient design and build service to our clients. The design and building consent service is also offered to clients who wish to use their own builders.
Deck-king was established 10 years ago as a specialist carpentry based deck building business. We have refurbished and built over 150 decks up to $125,000.00 in project value, organised over 50 building consents for our clients. We proudly have projects featured in two design magazines. We aim to be a national brand/service.
Our Products & Service
The Deck-King franchise builder teams will concentrate on three areas of expertise; building and refurbishing decks, balustrades/pool fences and deck roof coverings. We will offer our clients the largest possible selection of options in these areas. All our products will be showcased in a sales brochure for ease of client choice and selection. The Deck-King franchise builders are licensed building practitioners, they may be sole operators or running the franchise with their existing building business and therefore able to take on house alterations and other refurbishment works.
Work flow & Commitment
Designers can take on as much or as little work as required. We'd hope that designers will commit a minimum of between 3 and 6 deck projects per year to keep the licence active. The primary objective of the Deck-King designer is to complete design wok and oversee building consent application to create work for the Deck-king franchise builder teams. However the Deck-King builder teams may be too busy to quote and the client can offer work to other builders.
The licence to operate as a Deck-King designer can be cancelled by the designer with just 30 days notice without penalties. If the designer is too busy to satisfy demand but still wants to keep the licence running we may introduce secondary designer to the region, all referrals are offered to the first designer.
This has the potential for a full time role, a role for juniors in a larger practice or regular part-time work between other projects - the choice is yours. Feedback from our designer's suggests that the average deck project with submission to council takes 30 hours.
Fee's - Please note:
We appreciate that every project is different, we just need a guide to your pricing so that we can convey these charges onto our clients. Feedback from our Designers suggests approximately 30 hours to design and oversee a building consent application for an average deck - let us know your thoughts.
Free! We'll issue you a licence to operate as the Deck-King designer in your chosen region. If as we plan Deck-King becomes a national brand the licence to gain a steady stream of referrals may become a valuable asset that can be on-sold. We just ask that your offer a competitive service to our clients and liaise with our Deck-King builders.
We'll send you a licence to operate and you'll benefit from our qualified referrals

I have worked with matt of Deck-king for some years now and have completed drawings and submitted over 30 building consent applications. Working with Matt has been a pleasure and a good steady stream of income for my practice. Albeit 'bread and butter work' each project has its own challenges. I look forward working with the Deck-King Auckland region teams in the future.
