Good planning requires a clear, forward looking strategy and a knowledge of potential risks.
The "front-end" of many projects requires strategic thought and good planning to improve the likelihood of passing statutory hurdles, achieving quality goals and obtaining successful outcomes.
Beca develops strategic consent frameworks aimed at recognising and managing risks during the process of applying for consents or the necessary statutory planning approvals. A strategic approach to consenting can often reduce costs and risks, particularly of prolonged litigation. Our planners have successfully delivered consents for major projects, with issues addressed positively and appeals resolved, to enable them to be brought forward in the client implementation programme. Our “front end” focus means our projects are well planned and programmed, so we are often able to make savings at the end of a project on costly and time consuming appeal processes.
Our planners are also experienced at managing planning and environmental inputs for major construction projects and as a result have a practical and pragmatic approach to developing consenting strategies that will help make the construction phase simpler.
The need to incorporate sustainable principles is recognised and applied as necessary to each project.
