Projects Process

We have vast experience completing a wide range of projects and can undertake work from the concept stage right through to completion.

In the case of subdivision this can involve applying for required consents, the design of the necessary roading and service layouts, calling for tenders from contractors, supervising works in progress and completing the necessary checks and approvals required by Councils as well as completing all survey related work and overseeing the final issue of titles.

Below is a summary of our typical involvement in a subdivision project.
