Making it easier for architects, designers and builders across New Zealand to obtain building consents

Injecting consistency, transparency, quality and efficiency into the consent process will help create high-quality buildings, support housing construction and drive social and economic outcomes for their communities.

Consistency

Consistency

Deliver a quality and timely service with a single set of rules for applications and a consistent process for review.

For Designers and Builders

With a simple platform used for all applications, designers and builders could see all their work across the country; and the status of any application, anywhere.

For Councils

Ingesting complete and consistent data means councils know exactly what they’ll receive and can set their teams up to support the process more effectively. Effective resource allocation will mean timely inspections and reduced rework, helping to minimise costs and improve processing times.

It's all about helping the industry get started faster.

Transparency

Transparency

Make confident decisions based on full knowledge. We are working to create crystal clear views across each element of the process.

For architects

Visibility over the process at all times means you can keep clients up to date on progress, and prepare any RFI responses immediately, rather than waiting until the end of the assessment process. Ultimately, saving you and your clients, time.

For builders

Plan your projects and contractors, know what changes are acceptable, or not and know when inspections are scheduled.

For councils

Visibility of the overall process will show the pipeline of work ahead allowing you to meet your obligations for each application.

Quality

Quality

To create safe, warm homes with great quality construction, building designs must meet the regulations. The right products & solutions can help.

Compliance with regulations

When applications meet requirements, designers and architects receive less queries from council and the path to approval is expedited.

With the right information provided at the outset, councils have greater confidence in the application and can work through validation faster.

Continuous improvement through computer vision and machine learning

Applications are constantly improved by re-using the data from prior approved applications and guiding applicants through the process. This ensures applicants know what’s required, the ultimate result; higher quality homes.

Efficiency

Efficiency

When a single day's delay can cost millions, making the process more efficient is a priority.

Automation saves time throughout the process

As applications are submitted, forms are pre-filled removing the need for applicants to type in data. And applicants are alerted to any incomplete information, eliminating delays from the very beginning.

Templates give architects the ability to re-use designs; ideal for developments with multiple dwellings.

Visibility drives improvements

Clear visibility of the time taken to complete each step in the process, by whom and when, highlights improvement opportunities. This data can help everyone in the consenting process improve their performance.


Who's Involved?
