Creating 29 new lots in 8 locations across Auckland project 1

Creating 29 new lots in 8 locations across Auckland

Land Partners was engaged as the Auckland representative and lead consultant for a Christchurch based client with multiple developments across Auckland. The project involved the construction of 29 houses across 8 residential sites, spread across Auckland. We provided the in-house planning, survey and civil engineering services and also briefed and engaged external traffic consultants, geotechnical engineers, and anenvironmental scientist. We also successfully undertook consultation neighbours adjoining the sites to ensure the local community was engaged and comfortable with the new developments .

 

Resource consent and engineering applications were lodged for all sites and these involved a mixture of design typologies including: standalone and duplex two bedroom units; duplex or townhouse three bedroom units; and larger family houses of four or five bedrooms. The architect for the project was also based in Christchurch, so continuous communication from concept layouts through to developed designs was paramount. Some of the challenges for the projects included; site contamination, costly public network extensions (ranging up to 80m), street trees, site topography, stormwater management and vehicle access. Through perseverance and knowledge from the Land Partners team, these were all overcome.

With most approvals now granted and the developments at various stages of construction, the Land Partners team are undertaking all on site observation for engineering, while the survey team are setting out the sites and working through the legal requirements for the new land titles. The projects are due for completion throughout 2018.
