Chris’s unflustered professionalism and knowledge of detail during Environment Court proceedings was highly valued.

Chris Dawson has been involved in a variety of planning work for Waikato District Council for a number of years.  When it was decided to review Te Kauwhata in detail Chris was the obvious choice due to his in depth knowledge of the Te Kauwhata area and his familiarity with the Council’s philosophy to achieve sustainable development.   Chris is an excellent communicator and is well respected amongst his peers.  His unflustered professionalism and knowledge of detail during the Environment Court proceedings was highly valued by Council and it’s legal team and contributed to a good outcome for the community involved.

We have found BBO refreshingly consistent in their timely and professional approach to their work.

We engaged BBO from 2007 to assist us with consents for Lauriston Park Retirement Village in Cambridge. This consent was achieved quickly and efficiently.

BBO has gone on to carry out resource consent, survey, advisory and traffic design work for us over several further stages of the project including an extension to the village in 2013.

BBO’s extensive network of contacts in the Waikato has enabled us as non-local developers to work confidently in an otherwise unfamiliar location. We have found BBO refreshingly consistent in their timely and professional approach to their work.
