McKinlay Surveyors can manage all of the surveying, resource consent, land development and engineering requirements for your subdivision, or any other land or property project. Where a multi-disciplinary approach is needed, McKinlay Surveyors will bring together the people and skills to ensure the project proceeds with a minimum of difficulty and delay. Our experience covers just about every facet of land surveying, as demonstrated by the projects below:

Glover Road Hawera

On Glover Road  on the northern boundary of Hawera a 7-lot residential subdivision is being developed. The subdivision is secluded down a shared right of way that provides separation from the Glover Road industrial sites. The land contains a significant number of mature trees and a low-lying wetlandthat will be retained and enhanced within the subdivision.

McKinlay Surveyors were engaged to complete the surveying and land transfer requirements for the subdivision, as well as the civil design and contract supervision for services and construction of access to the lots. McKinlay Surveyors provided support to the developer in consultation with South Taranaki District Council to ensure council approval of the subdivision works.

Twin Valley Subdivision

Twin Valley is a rural lifestyle subdivision on Mangorei Road not far from the New Plymouth urban area.  The subdivision incorporates four rural blocks each over 4 hectares in area, 2 smaller lots of 4,000m² each, and the original homestead. The original farm block is crossed by twin valleys running from the mountain to the sea that provide the unique character of the land. The natural contour was a challenge for the civil works necessary to create the access to the larger lifestyle blocks.

McKinlay Surveyors were engaged to complete the surveying and land transfer requirements for the subdivision, as well as the civil design and contract supervision for earthworks and construction of the access road. By working closely with the client throughout the subdivision, and by reinforcing the client's expectation for high quality without compromise, the end result has met the original brief and added value to the land.
