Cardno are the land planning experts. We have been at the forefront of land development since the 1960’s undertaking the majority of new residential development throughout the Wellington region. Our success has been achieved through the experience and knowledge of key staff and utilising a multi-disciplinary approach to land development solutions.

Utilising our team of surveyors, resource planners and engineers we can assist you with all aspects of your land development project - from concept to completion. Starting with a raw block of land, by process of feasibility investigation, data capture and concept design we can procure all the necessary consents to initiate development. We can also complete detailed design, arrange tenders and subsequent construction of the development using our engineering and project management capabilities. The Cardno team can then complete the development cycle in-house with payment measures, cadastral and asbuilt surveys, and Council compliance certification.

Having an experienced multi-disciplinary team puts Cardno in a unique position to provide a seamless transition through all stages of development - gaining title in the shortest possible time and maximising your returns.
