Preliminary Design

During the preliminary design phase, our architectural designers will thoroughly evaluate the local regulations and guidelines for your area. This includes a review of district plan rules, building codes, and any other relevant requirements that may impact your new construction project. Our team will also assess potential hazards and design constraints to ensure that the project is feasible and meets local standards.

In order to ensure that your new construction project is approved, we will determine if a resource consent is needed and work with a planner if necessary. Our designers will use their expertise to create a preliminary design for your home that takes into account the overall scale and aesthetic. This design will serve as a framework for the next stages of your project, including the concept design and resource consent stages.

Modal was very responsive & quick to take on feedback, and to produce/iterate plans - the council accepted the plan documentation with very few change requests. The resulting tiered house layout has resulted in excellent all-day sun to all properties, as well as plentiful parking.

Excellent results achieved with virtually no input from myself. Council even gave Modal the nod for doing a fantastic job. Very impressed.
