Project Programme

The project programmes should consider contractors' lead times, consultants' involvement and the time needed to choose the project team. It should also consider seasonal implications, public holidays, closedown periods and labour availability.

Design concept

Preparing a design concept takes one to six weeks.

Resource consents

It takes two to eight weeks to prepare application documents for resource consents. A non-notified application will take 20 working days to process. A notified application requires at least three months statutory processing time.

Building consents

Preparing documents takes two to eight weeks. The building consent application takes 20 working days statutory processing time.

Construction documents

Preparing documents takes two to six weeks.


Preparing tender documents takes 2 weeks days. The tendering period is two to eight weeks, depending on the project's complexity.


The contractor will require some lead-in time, about one to 4 months. Construction is highly dependent on trades within the contract and on material, joinery and fittings being available. Construction periods can run from four months to over ten months.

Other factors

You will need to allow time to view designs, drawings and prices, and to consider, and approve decisions at the various stages of the project. These milestones will be included in the programme.
