The Mount John Village subdivision involved the commercial and residential development of former Department of Defence land West of Tekapo Township and above the lake. The development of this land situated in a landscape of majestic beauty required an extremely sensitive approach. A unique development was planned that will maximise both financial goals for the developer and environmental sustainability for the community.
DO has been involved with all aspects of this project from the beginning, providing economic analysis, concept development, project design and long-term, stage-by-stage planning. Managing this project included coordinating all other consultants and parties in addition to planning, surveying and engineering design services. Consultation with the community was held to ensure that the best possible outcome was achieved for all stakeholders.
