"I have worked with Vivian+Espie for a number of years now on a particularly complex and multi-faceted tourism project in the Rural General zone – LandEscape Wanaka. This project had the potential to be contentious and very difficult as it is set on a key location within a small farming property just outside Wanaka.
Vivian+Espie have helped steer the project through the turbulent waters of the Resource Consent process in a manner that has avoided controversy, evaded some of the worst aspects of the process and appears set to achieve a very positive outcome. The project has had several process driven changes in strategy and direction and the team at Vivian+Espie have handled these with aplomb and alacrity and given meaningful and useful advice throughout the journey.
I assure the uninitiated entering this process that you absolutely must have highly professional advisors to guide you through the unavoidable realities of an uncaring bureaucratic system that really wants to eat you alive and will do so if you let it. I unreservedly recommend Vivian+Espie for the task."
"When Queenstown Marina was first being envisioned, one of our primary tasks was to build the right team to ensure success of the project.
The team at Vivian + Espie with their extensive knowledge of the Council rules and regulations and planning criteria hit the ground running as soon as we engaged them and remained engaged and continued their support until the project was completed.
Their key strengths are; intimate knowledge of the area, zones, restrictions, processes as well as being able to employ appropriate consultants as needed. The passion they bring to the table and working as an extension of our internal team, were invaluable in realizing our project scope.
We always call on Vivian + Espie for all our development projects and would highly recommend them."
