GEM PLanning Projects - Services

GEM Planning Projects  has good working relationships with a wide range of specialist  technical consultants and is able to put together highly experienced  teams for complex projects.

GEM Planning Projects  provides project co-ordination services for the concept &  approvals phase of a project and knows how important it is to ensure  the team works together seamlessly, to manage and balance conflicting  technical & legislative requirements while keeping yield and  project feasibility in sight.

Be it ecology,  geotechnical survey, architecture, landscape or urban design, traffic  modelling, archaeology & cultural heritage, bushfire risk, flood  modelling, BCA, acoustic, air quality or surveying & civil  engineering we will strive to source the right technical consultants  for your project team.

That said, GEM Planning  Projects is equally comfortable being a team player.  Providing  planning input only and leaving the project team co-ordination to  others.

Post Lodgement  negotiation and effective communication with Local Government &  State Agencies is critical during the post lodgement phase for many  projects.  It can greatly affect the final outcome of the proposal  including approval time frame, fewer S96 amendments and reasonable  conditions of consent.
