All in all, it has been great working with Thomas Consultants. Even though the quote provided to me by Thomas Consultants was higher than competitors, I enjoyed my initial engagement which gave me some confidence that I was going to have trouble-free time if I were to take on Thomas Consultants. This has been exactly what I received and I felt that my work was done in a thorough manner leaving little to surprise.

I highly recommend Thomas Consultants. Advait helped us out a lot. Every time he solved any problems so fast and if we ever had questions, he was kindly answered. He also worked with the council and Watercare quickly to help our application. We are looking forward to working with Advait again for our next project.

William Wei, Private Client

Advait, many thanks for your help. You did a great job with lightning fast correspondence and smooth communication. I would like to give 5 stars for him, and well worth recommending to others, thanks!

Sambo Wongo, Private Client

David Cho, Private Client

I’m in the process of purchasing a house and I had Thomas Consultants carry out an environmental survey of the property and its immediate neighbourhood to address a concern I had in relation to the corresponding Auckland Council data. I recommend Thomas Consultants and the services it offers as my experience has been a positive one, in that each and every one of my communicated needs, one of them having been fast turnaround, has been met.

Kathryn Lawlor, CEO of MPHS Community Trust

Thanks to Thomas Consultants for helping us get this exciting community development project off the ‘ground’.

Nigel, New Plymouth District Council

Brett, we (Steve, Ian, Fleur and I) are very happy the services that Thomas Consultants have provided for this project. You have been timely, pro-active in your communications with us (in particular for the work required to get access to each of the large number of properties), given us a cost-effective outcome, and (from my point of view as the project manager) I have found Thomas Consultants very easy to deal with. Thanks for all your efforts.

Roy Koshy, Milano Properties

From the bottom of my heart, I thank you and all the team at TCL for your sincere inputs for getting the consent. I am extremely delighted with your work ethics and the team works.

Property Owner

Thank you. I would like to convey a special thanks for the high quality of communication and service from you.

Private Client, Resource Consent for Visitor Accommodation in Mission Bay

I want to say thank you very much for all the hard work you put in on this job. Couldn’t be happier with the outcome!

Rob Lewis, Homeowner

We contacted Thomas Consultants to help get a resource consent to build a new dwelling on our rural, bush clad property in Waiatarua.

We soon learned that our property was going to be challenging to develop, due to the native bush, geotechnical limitations, and Council’s firm views about vegetation clearance in the Ranges.

However, we were extremely fortunate to be assisted by Thomas Consultants, who were able to persuade Council that our resource consent application should be granted. Their professionalism, their diligence, and their in-depth knowledge of the RMA and Council’s processes were absolutely indispensable in reaching a positive outcome for us. Thomas Consultants acted quickly to resolve issues, kept us continuously informed, and were always friendly and easy to work with throughout the process.

We would thoroughly recommend Thomas Consultants to any individual, business or organisation needing assistance with Council consents.

Auckland Council Officer, Development Consent Review on behalf of Auckland Council

Thanks for your hard work on this one, the owner and contractor said to say a big thank you as well.

Lillian Mo, Homeowner

We are very appreciative of Sosene and his team.  They gave us a lot of help with the work carried out on our home.
5 Star definitely and strongly recommend!

Wang Lingyu, Homeowner

I had the pleasure of working Alex from Thomas Consultants Ltd for their exceptional planning service of the garage renovation at Remuera . From the very first interaction to the resource consent approval, their team displayed professionalism, expertise, and a genuine commitment.

Kevin Spring, Production Company

Our production company engaged Thomas Consultants to prepare, submit and oversee our Resource Consents for location filming sites including land use for large scale earthworks, filming activity, bridge building and railway crossings.

We utilised an extensive range of specialist disciplines (planning, engineering, surveying) within Thomas which made for a seamless process and minimised the need for involvement from additional consultancies.

Thomas were very flexible in their approach to our complex Consent requirements.  Their staff, and in particular Neeta Deo, have a huge depth of experience across Council and the private sector and this made for smooth process, particularly considering our needs were constantly evolving and with some very tight timelines.Neeta’s planning experience, cost control, and her ability to effectively lobby Council, proved to be invaluable and I cannot speak highly enough of her’s and Thomas’ professionalism.

I have no hesitation in recommending their services.

Colin and Sue Ferguson, Homeowners

We brought Thomas Consultants on board to help gain consent for a new dwelling and minor unit on our property. You have done an amazing job for us against a number of obstacles presented to us by council. Effectively you have achieved for us everything we hoped and offered excellent advice along the way!

Bridgestone NZ, Landscape architecture project to support resource consent application

Auckland Council, Biodiversity (Ecology) Project

Overall I have been really impressed with your attention to detail. It’s easily digestible and well presented.

Barbara Heise, Auckland Council

I have to say – this looks amazing. I think this is the first time I received a first concept that fully met the brief and looks exactly how I imagined it.:)  And it is very obvious you’ve reviewed all the material I sent you and have taken extra care to ensure you take not only the landscaping aspect into account but also the health & safety of the animals. The result looks stunning
