Arei Designs is…

The brainchild of multi award-winning design duo Benjamin Dye and Natasha McLean who have over 30 years’ combined experience in the residential design and construction industry.

The idea to create an online portal giving builders access to a comprehensive range of home designs came about through our work as building designers, and the frequent requests we would receive from builders to create well designed concept plans at an affordable price.

For the builders we spoke to it was important for them to have access to beautiful designs that would impress their clients, and for the designs to also be affordable so that they could keep their costs low.

This became our greatest challenge. How do we provide builders with quality designs that can evolve with current trends and technology, while still keeping costs low?

We developed our subscription model to help small to medium builders remain competitive on price. Our extensive library also means that the options you can offer your customers are no longer limited and always current.

It allows us to give our builders access to constantly evolving, up-to-date plans which would not be possible with a typical once-off house plan purchase.

It also allows Arei to offer our builders additional benefits. We become your design partner and we help you to grow your business through increased brand exposure, social media marketing, design advice and drafting support.

Basically, we want to be your one-stop-shop for design. With our own team of draftspeople, we offer highly competitive pricing for construction drawings.  If your clients require a design that is unique, we offer an additional design service, where you request a design and we complete it for no additional cost and add it to the collection.
