Our Environmental Engineering Services

ENERGY EFFICIENCY (H1) DESIGN

Following recent changes to the Building Code, we now also provide design services in respect to H1 “Energy Efficiency”. “In October 2007, clause H1 of the New Zealand Building Code was changed to require improved thermal performance (insulation) in all new houses, non-residential buildings smaller than 300m2, and in alterations to both. New houses and major extensions to existing houses need to use 30% less heating energy to achieve healthy indoor temperatures than previously” – Dept of Building & Housing.

RESOURCE AND LAND USE CONSENT APPLICATIONS

EDC carry out assessments into the environmental effects associated with land development projects as outlined below. We also identify the most appropriate form of mitigation measures to reduce adverse effects and provide comprehensive design drawings and reports to assist with resource and land consent

LAND USE CONSENT APPLICATIONS

Stream and coastal protection works and land development, can result in an increased pressure on our streams and coastline due to the expanding impervious areas and related stormwater discharges. We have specialist skills in the design of low impact solutions, to reduce the adverse effects from development and to remediate streams and coastal areas that have suffered from previous land-use intensification and natural erosion processes.

CONTAMINATED LAND STUDIES

Using desk study of available historical records and aerial photos, EDC provide an investigative service to determine possible past contamination land use. From soil and groundwater sampling we can determine contamination levels, sources and potential effects. We also design and provide reports for the remedial work on site, to protect public safety and the natural ecology.
