Playing our part to be paper free

A more efficient, greener and quicker consent process for new homes

With your average building consent starting to hit 2000-odd individual pieces of paper, Maddren Homes are pleased to be one of the few builders selected to help test and implement the Auckland Council's new paper free online building consent application process.

With our first online building consent now successfully lodged with the Council we can safely say the new system is a big step forward. The new online process requires minimal physical paper work while still maintaining a high standard of information being provided. Gone are the days of shipping large amounts of paper off to the Council for processing. The new online channel allows for a more streamlined process of submitting documents and responding to questions.

“Being one of the first building companies to be chosen to develop the new paper free system is a testament to the quality of our plans and documents” says Rodger Scott, Maddren’s General Manager. “This new system makes the whole consent process more efficient, greener and definitely quicker.”

Improving processes and ensuring attention to detail are key to Maddren Homes success. This council consent new process makes it easier for our customers and our staff to focus on the detail and ensure nothing gets missed, however, paper plans aren’t quite a thing of the past yet. As any good builder will tell you there is nothing better than an accurate set of paper plans onsite.   

As a family owned and operated business everyone at Maddren Homes is acutely aware that integrity is tantamount to success. “If I say I will do it I will do it. It’s a mind-set that in practice means quite simply there should be no difference in quality between a small traditional family home and a glass and concrete modern design. Not being part of a franchise gives Maddren Homes freedom to create a culture where innovation is encouraged but values can’t be compromised. It’s about maintaining tradition but not being traditional. As much as building has changed over the last century so have Maddren homes. We are building people’s future.
