Bathroom renovations are a specialty, and the company offers the complete design and build package. Architectural Designer, Licensed Building Practitioner and co-owner, Rochelle Foster (also of Yardley and Foster Architecture) says, “if you’d love a new bathroom, but you’re just too busy to take the project on, we’ll take care of everything”.

The process begins with initial free consultation. Rochelle will take you through design concepts and planning, they’ll choose fixtures, select tiles, lighting, ventilation, heating and colours and the in-house quantity surveyor will provide you with the complete cost proposal.

Before work begins, Rochelle can show you a three-dimensional image of your finished product. Aquapro handles all of the consenting required, as well as managing all the subcontractors, through to the final clean.

Rochelle’s design approach is client-driven and sees her create stunning classic renovations for both historic Fendalton homesteads as well as for those who seek something minimalist and clean-lined, or luxuriously dramatic, or practical and easy to clean for a young family.

Inspired by New Zealand architects and architecture, Rochelle “loves creating relaxing, yet functional spaces”. She says bathrooms rich in texture and materiality are timeless and is seeing a lot of greenery introduced to the bathroom space, which adds another dimension.

Established 10 years ago and now with a team of 30, Aquapro has cemented a reputation as an expert in high-end architectural work: the technical expertise and the attention to detail. The team works all over Canterbury and in Queenstown, and is delighted with the range of projects that sees them working on full bathrooms for central city hotels, to changing tapware in a residential ensuite.

Filtering Out Chlorine! Laser Plumbing

As the council works hard to protect against bacteria in our water, the expert team at Laser Plumbing Christchurch East is working hard to protect homeowners’ assets and ensure their comfort throughout the process.

Once known for its purity and beautiful taste, Christchurch’s chlorinated tap water is also damaging plumbing systems in the city. “The taste has been compared to drinking from a public spa and taking a bath smells like you’re in a swimming pool – but that’s not the only problem,” Laser Plumbing East owners, Chris Dick and Carol McCann explain.

“The water is attacking the metal or fibre washers in the system and over time it’s breaking down the components, which results in leaky elements, as well as corrosion. The big question is – will chlorination stop after one year?”
The team is an expert in the removal of chlorine, whether you want a clean drinking water source from the kitchen tap, or an entire chlorine-free home system. Along with installing and maintaining home and business water filtration systems, the company also provides gas fitting. “Gas hot water is a lot cheaper to run and also saves space, so if your hot water cylinder is leaking and you’re thinking about converting to gas, we can help.”

Established more than 25 years ago, the company offers a 24/7 on-call service, for both residential and commercial customers. Visit Laser Plumbing Christchurch East at unit 3, 11 Tussock Lane Ferrymead,
