development potential feasibility assessments

The new Unitary Plan allows residential properties to be developed in ways that weren’t previously possible and each site needs to be assessed individually to determine its potential.  We prepare Development Potential Plans that show how a site could be redeveloped, and we work closely with a resource planner, environmental engineer and civil engineer to get their preliminary input into the plans at the earliest stage.  We then take the plan to a pre-application meeting with council to get their feedback.  At the end of this process (which generally takes less than 2 months),  property owners have a good understanding of the amount of development that should be possible on their site. We can then look after the full design, documentation, consenting and construction process for the project.


remuera Residence alterations, Auckland

This residence in Remuera had been damaged in a fire, and was also a “leaky” house. Fat Parrot designed and documented the re-instatement of fire damage, the re-cladding of the exterior, and the interior renovation of the house. It has transformed the former plaster-clad house to a more enduring yet contemporary design.
