Developer Clearance Checks

 

If you’re building or carrying out work near powerlines in New Zealand, you must ensure you comply with the requirements of the New Zealand Electrical Code of Practice for Electrical Safe Distances (NZECP34).

 

Don’t worry. We can help! Our qualified and experienced team can assist scheme development and compliance by providing 3D modelling of lines and proposed structures, and maximum permissible building height contours.

 

We have strong working relationships with Transpower and other lines companies which means we have access to the latest line models and survey data.

 

We also have field survey capabilities and can produce engineering reports suitable for submission to Transpower or a lines company for consent.
