We use our appreciation of place, process and project to navigate the Resource Management Act (RMA) consenting and planning process. Our extensive experience enables us to de-risk challenging projects, delivering a pathway to consent by considering each proposal and its planning context concurrently. We call this integration of design thinking and planning tactics Design Planning.
We blur the boundaries between policy, assessment and design to deliver an integrated consent package. We work with public and private clients to deliver policy advice, design guidelines, development strategies, urban design and landscape assessments, 3D visualisations, geographic information system (GIS) mapping and expert evidence. In recent years, we have been involved with the consenting of many of New Zealand’s most complex and challenging projects.
Our design planners specialise in resolving complex resource management issues as they relate to our areas of expertise in landscape, urban design and architecture. As a group, we offer an unparalleled level of experience and understanding in taking projects through the RMA consenting and planning process; we design and deliver the best possible outcomes for Aotearoa New Zealand.
