Prepare a set of Engineering Standards and Engineering Code of Practice (Engineering Standards) based on NZS4404:2010 that meet the needs of Mackenzie District Council.
What we need
Mackenzie District Council (MDC) currently uses NZS4404:2010 when reviewing engineering plans under the Resource Management Act and adopting assets that are to be vested in the Council. Although many of the components of NZS4404:2010 are fit for purpose, we want a set of Engineering Standards that are specific to Mackenzie Council and meet our specific needs.
We want the consultant to discuss with us which sections could be modified, then prepare a draft set of Engineering Standards for public review and comment. Queenstown Lakes District Council, a district with similar issues as Mackenzie, has offered the use of their standards as a possible template. Mackenzie District Council would like to adopt a final version before 30 January 2023.
What we don’t want
Neither a blanket acceptance of all standards as fit for purpose nor a complete rewrite of NZS4404:2010 will satisfy this request.
What’s important to us
We are looking for consultants who are familiar with the subdivision and development in the unique climate, planning and developmental pressures in the Mackenzie and who have a practical approach to modifying NZS4404:2010. Consultants should also be aware of Mackenzie District geology and the aspirations of the district relating to such things as our spatial plans, landscape needs and Dark Sky ordinances.
Why should you bid?
Your contributions to the new Engineering Standards for Mackenzie District Council will shape the future of development in Mackenzie.
A bit about us
Mackenzie District Council has amazing natural landscapes, strong and independent communities, and a rich history. MDC, while having the third smallest usually resident population in New Zealand, has the tenth largest land mass. Our District is diverse with a number of industries contributing to our GDP, especially agriculture (including aquaculture) and tourism related industries (accommodation and services). We are home to the Aoraki Mackenzie International Dark Sky Reserve, one of only eight in the world. MDC is committed to investing in our community and making decisions that ensure the Mackenzie District continues to be a unique and special place to live, work and play.
