Most subdivisions have a significant Engineering component

From initial investigations through to the transfer of new assets to Local Authorities, our Engineers play a key role in the successful completion of Greenfield subdivisions. The three key questions that must be answered before any development takes place are:

  • Is the zoning appropriate for the proposed development?
  • Can the site be serviced for the proposed development?
  • What constraints may limit the development?

Our Engineering team work closely with the  Local Authority Asset teams to investigate and discuss infrastuctural constraints and solutions and prepare Preliminary Infrastucture reports, Preliminary Design Plans, and Stormwater Catchment studies, as required depending on the scope of the development. These can form part of our initial reporting to our clients in order to assess the viability of any proposed development.

These documents can also inform the applications to the Local Authority for Subdivision, Landuse and Engineering consents. Depending on the scope of work, post consent our Engineers prepare final design plans for Engineering Plan approval (EPA), prepare schedule of quantities and Tender documents, assist in the appointment of the Civil contractor(s), represent the client to ensure compliance with the EPA during construction of the Civil works, prepare as-builts plans and asset schedules, and prepare application for final clearance (224c Certificate).

Examples of our subdivisions can be seen on project pages.
