FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

  • Do I need an Architect?

    It depends on your type of build.

    If it is a New Build then you definitely need an Architect to draw up your ideas and map it out on paper. Make sure you choose the right Architect that shares the same vision that you do, time and time again we see clients who have jumped in with Architects share the same vision only to have countless of revisions done to get it right which in-turn slows down the build process. Therefore at Stalwart we make sure you have help choosing your Architect and we make sure they align with your vision. Keep in mind If its just basic renovations or rec-lads then you do not need an architect.

  • Do I need council consent?

    You need consent for everything you do when it comes to building.

    Whether it’s structural additions to your existing home or changing internal layouts, they all require the process of gaining a building consent through the Christchurch Council.  Depending on the extent of the project and your land title you may also require a Resource Consent. If you are unsure what you will need you can find out more information from the Christchurch Council Website or contact Stalwart Construction and we can take control of the whole process from start to finish making sure everything has been covered and no step missed.
