Clayton McKenzie, James Dufty

130ha master-planned community for up to 700 homes, retail and service zones and a retirement village. Retail and service centres include a supermarket and service station.


  • McKenzie & Co. were bought on board to deliver the development management and project management aspects of the project.
  • Alongside the design of all civil works across numerous consent applications, we also delivered the topographic and cadastral surveying requirements for the site.
  • In order to accurately deliver the above to our high standards we undertook contract administration, site supervision and project compliance reporting.


  • The project is the largest development to have occurred in the township and there were numerous challenges around servicing for both wastewater and water supply, with a large proportion of flat land only slightly above mean high water. There were also challenges around realigning the primary road through Mangawhai and ensuring utility solutions for growth of the township.
