The company still maintains the long-standing reputation for joinery excellence in Nelson, as we now skip forward two generations to Bob’s daughter Sharyn and son-in-law Noel Tait at the helm of the team. 

Noel and Sharyn have led the dedicated team since 2006, proving time and time again through our award-winning joinery that when it comes to your kitchen – you can trust the Cooper Webley team to deliver on beautiful design, products and craftsmanship.

What is a CDS?

Here at Cooper Webley, we are proud to have our own Certified Kitchen Designer – Craig Hooper.

A Certified Kitchen (CDS) or Bathroom Designer is a professional who is qualified by education and experience to research, design, plan and supervise the installation of your kitchen and/or bathroom project.  Whether it is a renovation or a new build, a Certified Designer will help you achieve your dreams.

Once a designer has completed and passed the required level of the NZQA National Diploma in Kitchen Design qualification, they may apply to become a Certified Designer with the Certified Designers Society.  These credentials are internationally recognized and acknowledge a minimum of four years design industry experience.

Alongside having met the criteria to become a Certified Kitchen or Bathroom Designer, Certified Designers also actively participate in on-going Professional Development by learning about the newest available products, design solutions, building regulations and design trends which give the consumer – you – the benefit of knowing you are working with a certified professional in the industry.

Selecting a Certified Kitchen or Bathroom Designer ensures you the highest degree of professional help for your project.  Working with your personal needs, a Certified Designer will design the most functional and aesthetically pleasing arrangement for your space.

We are very priviledged to have Craig on our team leading our Designers.
