Our involvement with this project began when the property was zoned as Rural Lifestyle. We provided submissions to the District Plan review process and successfully lobbied to have the zoning changed to Low-Density Residential.
Then followed an extensive planning and consenting process; obtaining subdivision consent, ORC water permits and engineering acceptance.
The design of the subdivision was made in collaboration with the owners’ specific requests and took into account the unique constraints of the property. Multiple stormwater retention areas were integrated into the design, to manage potential flood events. Exposed aggregate concrete was used for the driveway, footpath and parking bay construction as an attractive design feature. The underground services were designed to ensure that minimum grades, cover and separation were achieved while integrating with the existing three waters infrastructure.
Throughout the process, we worked with multiple other consultants, geotechnical engineers, hydrologists, arborists and civil contractors to ensure that all local authority requirements were met and the subdivision was completed to the highest standard.
