Meet one of NZ’s top draftsmen for residential architectural design

In 2008, Christchurch draftsman/designer Jeff Mason formed Detail Consultancy Ltd. in Canterbury, New Zealand.

Jeff moved from his home town of Nelson to Christchurch in 1996 to study and acquire highly sought-after draftsmen/designer skills. In 1999 he completed his final year of the National Diploma in Architectural Technology at the Christchurch Polytechnic of Information Technology (CPIT).

Since then he has worked as an architectural draftsman and designer with a variety of firms in Nelson and Christchurch, excelling in a wide range of professional attributes and principles required in the architectural industry.

Jeff’s professional office administration attributes combined with his Architectural Technician and Computer Aided Design (CAD) qualifications enhanced his knowledge to a senior level of draftsmen’s industry experience.

Jeff obtained his Design 2 Category Building Practitioner Licence (LPB) in 2009. This recognises draftsmen/designers who have the skills and experience to design all types of residential homes and small- to medium-scale commercial buildings (generally under 10 metres in height).
In 2012, Christchurch draftsman/designer Jeff became an acknowledged Architectural Designer as a professional member of Architectural Designers New Zealand Incorporated (ADNZ). ADNZ members are specialists in building design and construction, undertaking residential and commercial projects at all stages of the construction process. 


With over 15 years of industry experience, Jeff is able to provide a depth of knowledge to a range of residential and multi-use design projects through Detail Consultancy Ltd.

Personal note: “I believe my family traditions for outdoor adventures, particularly mutton birding near Stewart Island, have helped shape my draftsman’s/designer’s appreciation for the natural environment in how I design for a particular site. Understanding nature’s basic elements for the sun can help give you a home that keeps you warm and comfortable in a more cost-effective and environmentally friendly way.”
