A Pathway to Stress Free Building

Embark on a seamless building journey where every phase of your project is handled with precision and care. From initial planning to final inspection, our tailored framework ensures a stress-free process, keeping you informed and at ease every step of the way.

Pre Project Feasibility

Explore the viability of your project before breaking ground with our comprehensive pre-project feasibility analysis. We delve into site assessments, zoning laws, and budget evaluations to ensure your build begins on a solid foundation.

What Is Pre Project Feasibility?

Pre-project feasibility is the crucial first step across various projects, which focuses on establishing a solid business case and performing due diligence. It begins by addressing key questions about project scope, costs, timelines, and risks, ensuring foundational clarity. Planning reports are then crafted to outline permissible developments and identify site-specific constraints such as zoning and environmental impacts.

Concurrently, survey reports analyse land characteristics, noting issues like easements and title reliability, which are essential for detailed planning and budgeting. This structured approach effectively integrates legal and physical assessments, laying the groundwork for a strategically executed project.

Planning Phase

During the Planning Phase of your project, meticulous preparation paves the way to secure development consent or a Complying Development Certificate (CDC), ensuring your project aligns with local building codes and regulatory standards.

What Is The Planning Phase?

The planning phase initiates with diligent groundwork to secure either development consent or a Complying Development Certificate (CDC). This stage involves detailed topographic surveys, redefinition plans, and comprehensive building measurements. Early engagements, such as pre-DA meetings with councils, are crucial for smoothing potential regulatory paths.

Furthermore, the process includes the development of essential documents such as the Statement of Environmental Effects and CDC Planning Reports. These efforts ensure that all aspects of the project are legally compliant and ready for any necessary appeals to the Land and Environment Court.

Project Execution

Also known as the Post-Approval Phase, we rigorously manage the construction process, ensuring every detail aligns precisely with the approved plans. This careful oversight guarantees your project transitions seamlessly from blueprint to reality.

What Is Project Execution?

Project execution starts with detailed surveys and the precise setting out of works, essential for aligning with approved plans. This phase includes preparing administration documents like Section 88B Instruments and conducting Identification Survey Reports to ensure accuracy.

Project management is crucial, involving the review of conditions and modifications to maintain compliance. A task matrix helps manage timelines and secure utility certificates, while reports ensure all conditions are met for council submissions, ensuring a seamless construction process.

As your project nears completion, we ensure every detail is perfected to match your vision. Rely on our expert surveyors’ guidance to confidently finalise this essential stage of your project.

What Is The Finalisation Phase?

In the finalisation phase of your project, the focus shifts to completing essential survey tasks and ensuring all documentation is prepared for legal proceedings. This includes obtaining necessary signatures, managing requisitions, and lodging plans for registration at NSW LRS to meet regulatory requirements.

Additionally, the final identification survey report is compiled, along with lettable area reports and lease area surveys, which are crucial for future leasing and management of the property. These steps are facilitated through applications via the Planning Portal, ensuring a seamless transition to the final stages of your project.

Project JourneyFAQ

How long does a typical project survey take to complete?

The length of a survey can differ based on the intricacy and scale of the project. Simple tasks such as land surveys may be completed quickly, however, for services such as high-definition laser scanning or BIM solutions the timeline could be prolonged due to the detailed work and accuracy needed. It’s always worth reaching out to our team for an estimated timeframe tailored to your project’s requirements.

Can adjustments be made during the project if needed?

Yes, certainly! Modifications can be made as required throughout the project. This flexibility guarantees that in case of changing client needs or unforeseen challenges, the project roadmap can be easily modified accordingly. Our team of planners and surveyors are well prepared to manage alterations ensuring that the project stays in line with our client’s goals and needs.

How can I track the progress of my survey project?

Clients have the option to stay updated on their survey project advancement by receiving regular updates and reports from our team. Clement & Reid utilises a range of communication tools and technologies to keep clients in the loop. 

Furthermore, our clients can reach out directly to their designated team member for progress updates and assistance with any questions they may have. This clear line of communication guarantees that clients are well informed about the status of their project and any new developments.

How do you handle project changes or unforeseen issues?

When it comes to managing changes or unexpected challenges during a project, a proactive and flexible approach is key. Initially, thorough planning and preparation are undertaken to anticipate potential adjustments and prepare suitable responses. This includes understanding the project’s scope, requirements, and potential implications. 

Our approach allows for project plans to be modified as needed, ensuring that objectives are still met despite any adjustments. The use of advanced technology, such as GPS and laser scanning, further aids in adapting to changes accurately and efficiently.

What measures do you take to ensure accuracy in surveys?

Accuracy in surveys is of utmost importance, and several measures are implemented to achieve this. We utilise the latest and most precise surveying equipment, including GPS systems, total stations, and laser scanners, which are regularly calibrated and maintained. Data collected during surveys undergo cross-checking and verification to minimise errors and enhance precision. 

Our surveyors at Clement & Reid are highly trained and certified, ensuring proficiency in advanced surveying techniques and equipment. Rigorous quality control procedures are also put in place, including checking measurements and following strict surveying protocols.

We are accredited to ISO 9001 (2015) by external audit.
