DRIVE SERVICES

  • We will work with you to ensure we understand your key development outcomes so we can assist in achieving them.

  • We will implement a thorough review of the design process, to identify any improvements and issues, and ensure a detailed and co-ordinated design across all disciplines is achieved.

  • We will work alongside the architect, planner and associated parties to ensure the resource consent application is complete and pre-empting and mitigating key issues in a timely manner.

  • We will lead the design team, with contractor input if required, resolving issues to minimise future costs. This will lead to the building consent lodgement.

  • We will work with you and the contractor to finalise the budgets and procure the Main Contractor.

  • We will work with the project team through the construction phase. The level of involvement would depend on the contractors' engagement model.

  • We will engage and work with you on the most effective delivery method, to ensure we minimise compliance difficulties at completion, leading to settlements as early as possible.

DAMAGES AVOIDED
