Established in 1987

Established in 1987, with offices in Auckland and Wellington, Kada has a reputation for honesty, trust, integrity, innovation and collaboration.
Privately owned by Directors John Gilbert and Dave White, Kada has a multidisciplinary team of project managers, estimators, CAD technicians and account managers who are dedicated to delivering quality work.
We collaborate with you and your team to develop a flexible workplace environment. We aim to create contemporary, fluid, changeable office spaces that promote good company culture, and multifunctional work environments that encourage user engagement.
In January 2019 Kada merged with Cite to offer a unified commercial offering. Through this merger, Kada acquired brands Vitra, Artek and Actiu who are industry leaders in furniture design and concepts for offices and public spaces. Thus complimenting Kada’s existing international portfolio compromising of brands Schiavello, Bene, and Dauphin.
We deliver solutions that are suited to meet the challenges of current and future working environments. Our approach follows a research-centric philosophy, and spaces are designed for what works best for you.
