Wetland Subdivisions

Brendon Smith and Parallax Consultants were recommended by our neighbour who had got prompt resolution on a simple one lot subdivision identical to ours. As the main driver of subdividing my mothers two properties in Waimauku, I have come to appreciate Brendons expert advice over the last 3 ½ years. He has an in depth knowledge of the local regulations, a genuine passion for the environment, and goes the extra mile to get a result for the client. An example of this – he arranged a site meeting to discuss a right of way issue on a Sunday morning, as this was the only time that suited our neighbour.

Brendon's vision and problem solving skills when faced with complex issues are very impressive, along with his ability to communicate with our family group in simple language. Parallax Consultants get things done and are a pleasure to deal with.

Rehabilitation Subdivision & Coastal and Land Use Consents

I am delighted to provide this letter of recommendation on behalf of Brendon and Tracy and the team at Parallax Consultants. I have developed considerable respect and admiration for the breadth of expertise and experience that Parallax offers. I have worked with the team for a number of years now on various planning, subdivisional and development activities and have found Parallax to be a thoroughly professional and innovative consulting group.

There have been some quite tricky aspects to some of the matters that I have engaged Parallax for, and I have been more than pleasantly surprised by the innovative ways that they have approached these issues. They are able to call on an extended skill set through their various associates and consequently in my view they possess the capability to handle larger and more complex assignments.

It is a testament to their customer focus that a significant purchaser on one of my transactions was so impressed with their knowledge and competence that he has retained Parallax in his own right. And now a further associate is also poised to consult them.

As well as being highly competent, and results focused they are a very pleasant team to deal with. My relationship with Parallax has been extremely positive. They are focused and deadline conscious, and are a pleasure to work with. I recommend them highly to anyone seeking highly professional advice in the fields of planning, development, surveying and related disciplines.

41 Lot Residential Subdivision

I engaged Parallax Consultants in 2010 to undertake all of the necessary survey work for a 41 lot residential subdivision in Glendhu Road, Albany. I have just negotiated the purchase of another property which I intend to subdivide. I will be using Parallax for my survey work on this project. So, yes, I do recommend Parallax to others and look forward to working with them again.

Wetland and Bush Subdivisions over Seven Stages

I have been using the services of Parallax Consultants Ltd since Brendon and Tracy started up back in 2004. The work they have carried out for me has involved the covenanting of Bush and Wetland blocks and the subsequent required surveying.

Both Brendon and Tracy have a thorough knowledge of the district plans and rules that govern this type of activity. I have always found them to be practical, helpful and easy to deal with.

Five years ago I moved to Australia and since then have used Brendon to project manage my wetland developments. Brendon has taken away the hassle for me of dealing with various contractors and the council and I have greatly appreciated his help.

Wetland Subdivisions

I have been working with Parallax Consultants on my problematic subdivisions over the last few years and have found them to be prompt, efficient and professional in dealing with the Council and other associated consultants. They were also able to provide practical solutions to the many issues that arise with multiple site subdivisions.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Brendon and Tracy Smith from Parallax Consultants for any subdivision related work.

35 Lot Residential Subdivision

I have known Brendon for some 8+ years. My first contact was prior to the formation of Parallax. I found Brendon easy to deal with and had no hesitation in using his company, Parallax Consultants, when I looked to a subdivision project.

I purchased a 9 acre residential zoned property in Dargaville some six years ago. I engaged Parallax to complete the design of a 35 site subdivision. We had a lot of frustrating requirements and changes to satisfy the Kaipara District Council. At the time Brendon was patient and very professional in all these dealings.

I would have no hesitation in using Parallax again or recommending their services to any other party.

Subdivision Appraisals

I have dealt with Brendon and Tracy for approx. 10 years and completed several subdivisions with them, some for myself and others for clients. I have found them to be knowledgeable and a pleasure to deal with. Their preliminary assessments on the potential of sites have been invaluable for me to advise clients on options and value. They have always given me great service with the projects proceeding to the time frames and budgets agreed. I would not hesitate to continue to recommend their services to clients and friends.
