Once the contract is signed, our architect will proceed with completing the construction drawings required for the building consent and the onsite building consent simultaneously. These drawings provide detailed plans, specifications, and documentation necessary to demonstrate compliance with local building regulations and requirements.
After the construction drawings are prepared, they will be submitted to the relevant local councils for approval. The councils typically have 20 working days to process the applications, although this timeline can be extended if further information or clarification is requested.
While waiting for the council's approval, your client liaison team will reach out to organise a colour consultation to confirm choices such as roofing, cladding colour, aluminium joinery, kitchen and flooring finishes. These decisions are important as they allow for the timely ordering of the correct materials, which can help expedite the build process once approvals are obtained.
Once the building consents are obtained, and the materials are ordered, the construction phase can begin, and the project can move forward according to the agreed-upon timelines and specifications.
