Sky City - Auckland . N.Z

“Debbie Cavit and her team at Cavit Projects worked with Moller
Architects on a number of projects for Sky City, for their VIP salons
and VIP accommodation.

Cavit Projects is an ideal source for this
type of project; they are able to supply great product, to adapt designs
to suit the client’s need and to supply on time and on budget. Not only
were we able to source all of the furniture for these areas from Cavit,
but Cavit were able to accessorise with lights, glassware, mirrors, objets
etc, so that the overall look in these areas was a cohesive one. And,
most importantly for our client, we created luxurious VIP areas, that
have a personal touch.”

Jodie Moller, Moller Architects.

Likuliku Lagoon Resort, Fiji

"For 5 star properties it is important that the interiors of all areas are considered as a whole in the interior design, and Likuliku's place at the top of 5 star resorts in the Pacific is owed very much to Debbie's input.

Debbie was professional, helpful and pro-active in all respects.  She has shown as excellent appreciation in design and selection of furniture, fabrics, etc. and manages to balance sometimes very tight budgets with results that appear much more expensive.  I think here is no doubt that once on a job, her time input is always generous in comparison with her contract obligations.  Kevin Cairns, Project Manager  Likuliku Lgoon Resort



Malolo Island Resort FIJI

Debbie has just recently finished our room refurbishment at Malolo. As Debbie was responsible for the original Malolo makeover we thought she was the best person to take our style to the next level. Given a specific brief, Debbie went about proposing a fantastic array of appropriate colour and simple ideas. We accepted everything she proposed and were happy that she managed to make our budget as well. Debbie's calm persona and numerous contacts in Fiji made the implementation of our refurbishment a breeze. Her attention to detail and follow through has been outstanding and certainly most welcomed here in Fiji. We are now left with a new look that the critics, guests and agents are raving about. We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Debbie for any work she felt happy proposing for. Her simple approach and experience in Fiji has saved us money and made our life easier.

 Sheraton Denarau Villas and Malolo Island Resort Fiji

Cavit Projects was responsible for selection and procurement of the majority of FF&E items for Tabua Investments' Sheraton Denarau Villas project. Cavit's performance on cost, quality, and detailed organisation of the complex task of delivery and packaging of items for the 82, five star apartments was highly professional, and the wide range of items which they supplied have proven to be most satisfactory in terms of durability and long lasting style.

Similar abilities were demonstrated on the Malolo Resort refurbishment, which, being situated on an island, requiring special shipping and deliveries, demanded excellent organisation and management. Cavit's are responsive to client requirements in terms of cost, quality, and time, and have worked enthusiastically towards all objectives.
