Process

Design stage

 

At your first contact with Markplan, we will provide a ‘no obligation’ assessment of your needs. This may involve a meeting with yourself or your architect, a site visit, or a review of your plans.

Our Process

 

Once we have gathered all the necessary information, we will prepare a proposal for you outlining the scope of our input for your project. This will include time frames as well as our fee structure.

Our Process

 

This is sent to you for your approval and return to Markplan.

Our Process

 

The engineer working on your project will communicate with you and/or your architect as appropriate during the engineering of your project.

Our Process

 

Once the engineering is completed it is provided to your architect to allow completion and co-ordination of the Building Consent documentation.

Our Process

 

The architect’s drawings are then returned to Markplan for the final review and checking of the structural content on the plans.

Our Process

 

We will then issue our certification (Producer Statement - Design) and the necessary calculations for lodgement of your Building Consent, which is generally done by your architect.

Our Process

 

We will liaise with the Territorial Authority during the processing of your Consent to answer any questions they might have regarding our engineering.

 

Construction Stage

Once Building Consent is issued, the conditions of consent often require input from the design engineer during construction. This is referred to as Construction Observation in the conditions of your Consent.

Our Process

 

Your builder will communicate with us at the appropriate times so that each required site visit can be arranged to observe construction and provide the necessary site documentation for Council. This documentation includes site observation reports and a photographic record of the works reviewed.

Our Process

 

These site reports are distributed to your builder if any remedial work is asked for by us.

Our Process

 

At the end of our involvement in your project a full set of all the site observation reports, together with our construction certification ('Producer Statement – PS4 - Construction Review') for the work observed will be sent to your builder to pass onto Council at the final inspection. A copy of this same documentation is provided to you, either directly or via your builder, for your own records.
