With offices in Ontario, Canada and Canterbury, New Zealand, North South Studio has been shaping the building landscape of residential communities for over 30 years by providing quality design, code and construction consulting services. Our complement of staff brings to each project a combined total of sixty years of experience in various facets of the construction industry.
Founded in 1989 by Alain (Al) McCann, as Antech Consulting, we have undergone a few name changes over the years to reflect the level and type of services we offered.
To better serve our growing clientele, our new name and re-branding to North South Studio was necessary to better reflect our new online service delivery model, increased catchment area and new corporate structure.
This new service model includes the launch of our new website featuring a fully digital and 100 % online delivery of our services. Taking full advantage of this digital technology will allow clients to retain our services and correspond with us from anywhere at anytime using advanced technology features, tools and apps. We are still available for face to face meetings and our field technicians are available to attend sites to gather site date if require.
