It’s hard to pinpoint one area in particular in this series of subdivisions north east of the city. We have gained the consents for a number of the developments around this area and as the growth out this side of town expands, it’s hard to believe now that this area was once productive farmland.
Headquarters and Gym Space
Some of the projects we work on are really inspiring – and Hine was no exception. This local brand have been so successful and they outgrew their previous premises, and needed to find something larger. Working with Hine’s on their new headquarters and gym space was an absolute pleasure.
Te Wananga o Aotearoa
More than just a resource consent application for this client. We provide on-going monitoring of the varying Te Wananga o Aotearoa sites throughout New Zealand, as well as District Plan advice, resource management advice and resource consents when the need arises.
Titanium Park Fuel Stop
One of many jobs that we have assisted the Waitomo Group with. It’s always good working with this team and seeing a local business succeed.
HAMPTON DOWNS MOTORSPORT PARK
Another multi-faceted project we have worked on, obtaining resource consents for the different activities on site, signage, and providing District Plan advice. Not to mention the fact that we have actually whizzed around the track in some VERY fast cars – Life in the Fast Lane!

Local business doing a fabulous job with residential development, now also with CBD Revitalisation. The many pre-existing building and boundary issues were sorted without to much trouble thanks to the very clever project team.
Large scale inner city regeneration project

PAWS AT HOME
Doggy Daycare - Te Rapa
One of Louise’s all-time favourite projects. One of those out of the box projects and a local businesses which we support back in return. Louise’s dog LOVES this place!
We ‘still’ enjoy the refurbishment projects like this one. Like a line trimmer this project was relatively straight forward, with not too onerous red tape to saw through.
HAMILTON SKIN CANCER CLINIC
It’s rewarding to work on a project for a local business you know, and a landlord with whom you already have a connection with. On paper, this project should’ve been straight forward – and it was after we’d sorted the access, parking and landscaping issues.
ANA-MARIA FUNERAL SERVICES
Business in a residential zone.
We learn about so many different businesses in our work – this project commenced with the ‘out of the box’ funeral services activity, it had heritage thrown in the mix along with location in a residential zone. This was also a project where team work (primarily Ana-Maria’s effective communication), meant that the neighbour’s all provided written approvals and we avoided any notification process.
Gyms seem to be a bit of a specialty for us. Here is another that we have assisted with and this one was easier to get through the planning system as there wasn’t a carparking requirement – with its location in the CBD.
Five Cross Roads
Another pearler for a very loyal and great client of ours. This project was part of a wider site redevelopment, so we had cumulative signage, circulation and traffic generation effects to consider, along with ensuring both Corporate Identity requirements and good urban design was achieved.
New dealership - Te Kowhai
Industrial and commercial growth in the north end of Hamilton is constant at the moment, and we have helped a number of clients with consenting projects in this area of town, including this new dealership from one of our favourite clients.

The building was designed by Noel Jessop Architecture, built by Downey Construction and we provided the advice and skills needed to gain the planning permissions and consents. A great result achieved by a team of local businesses working together to create this modern and stylish building.
Flex Fitness Gym, Church Rd, Pukete
Positioned in a location surrounded by other noteworthy Downey buildings, Flex Fitness is a purpose designed facility to accommodate the head office and the Hamilton gym. Resource Consent was obtained efficiently so construction could commence without delay. Construction completed and Flex Fitness operational.
The development was part of an ongoing ‘project’ by the developer Hatwell Properties Limited to regenerate and enhance the northern end of the Central City. The design defines the streetscape and is seen now as a landmark corner site. The site redevelopment required resource consent for the new office building.

Kmart is now open for business.

KIWIBANK - VICTORIA STREET
Kiwibank - Victoria Street
Changes to the exterior of a building can trigger a need for a resource consent, as the inner-city branch of KiwiBank discovered when they wanted to amend the facade. This is the type of project in which we can assist – and in this instance did for KiwiBank.
