We take an integrated approach across all disciplines to provide strategic planning advice.

At Babbage we understand how a project sits within the immediate environment and how the relationship it has with its surroundings is crucial to reducing the impact on the environment.

Our planning team is experienced in regional, district planning and resource consenting processes across Auckland and throughout New Zealand. Our team works across all Babbage disciplines, which ensures we deliver quality work regardless of complexity or size.

Our planners are integrated within the design process at all stages, linking design to the processes and requirements of the project.

We are adept at planning early project stages for commercial, industrial and residential developments. Having involvement early in a project allows us to achieve the desired outcomes for the client. This is done by quantifying the risks and opportunities and allowing the team and the client to make informed decisions, making the resource consenting process as smooth and streamlined as possible.

Our experience covers a wide range of sectors and industries from residential housing sub-divisions, commercial and retail developments to community, early childcare, school and tertiary projects. With over 60 years’ experience in primary industry including 20 years specialising in the dairy processing and factory plant sector, we are the ideal partner to assist you with the planning of your next project.
