Residential Development, Papakura

Fraser Thomas Ltd has been engaged by an Affordable Housing Provider to provide consultancy services for a number of residential developments in the Auckland region. One of these developments is located at 40 Kelvin Road, Papakura.

This development, following the removal of the existing dwelling, involved the construction of four new single level, two bedroom dwellings on the property. A topographical survey was undertaken to define the existing site features and levels. This was used by our Civil Engineers and GJ Gardner Homes to design a shared accessway, services and the proposed dwellings. On completion of the dwelling designs, a subdivision scheme plan was produced and our Geotechnical and Civil Engineers undertook further investigations and design works. This included specific design of an acceptable stormwater solution involving a combination of a reticulated piped system and stormwater detention/recharge pits for the two rear sites, based on site specific soakage testing data collected by us.

An integrated Land Use and Subdivision Consent application was prepared for the four new dwellings and four lot subdivision. The construction stage of the project involved our civil engineers undertaking observation and certification of the shared accessway and services. On completion of all civil and building construction works, we applied for and obtained release of the completion certificate from Auckland Council. We then completed the land transfer survey, following which the client’s legal team were able to make application for new certificates of title to issue for the four new lots.
