When you need an engineering approval
Ngā wā e hiahia ohiatanga mahi hanga pūkaha ai koe
Types of work that need an engineering approval
Apart from a resource and building consent, some development projects need engineering approvals, particularly if they involve installing an infrastructure asset like:
- public drainage and wastewater
- stormwater, flooding and overland flow paths
- effects on roads
We can help you get the engineering approval
Our team of development engineers:
- assess the designs
- confirm the assets are constructed according to our standards and the asset group's requirements
- provide engineering input
- inspect public drainage
- accept the assets into council ownership.
Conditions of approval will tell you when your engineer and other representatives need to be on site for the required inspections.
Asset groups, like Stormwater, Parks, Auckland Transport (AT) or Watercare, manage the infrastructure assets.
