ECAD Ltd was formed as a subsidiary company to Emerge Architectural Design, in response to various approaches from Group Housing Companies and Residential Developers to provide a tailored ongoing Architectural Draughting Service.

We have developed efficient systems to document standard Residential Projects for our ongoing clients at competitive rates and with quick turnaround times. Either from existing standard designs or designs created by us for specific sites or sub-divisions.

ECAD offers this service throughout New Zealand, with projects already completed in Auckland, Hamilton, Taupo, New Plymouth, Manawatu, Horowhenua, Kapiti Coast, Wellington and the Wairarapa.

We currently have a Master Planned 12 site Medium Density sub-division underway in the Kapiti area, where each design was specifically tailored to the site and its neighbours.

Another 18 site Master Planned development in the Taranaki is under construction now, with high levels of sales as soon as sites were available. For this site we have produced Photo-Render images for marketing purposes.

ECAD has developed an Ecological – Sustainable series of high performing Designs that is available to interested developers. A recent design study for a client has seen the development of 6 unique and small Eco Homes and Cabins that can be manufactured off site and transported. All of these Eco buildings will have options for stand-alone power supply and services, making them ideal for remote locations, small holiday homes or cost effective first homes.
