B) Building Consent Design - for buildings requiring Building Consent

C) Building Materials - an option for builders getting either Design package

D) Kitset Manufacturing - for those wanting to build off-site or provide kitsets

E) Kitset Assembly - typically for non-licenced Owner-Builders or DIYers

DESIGN PLANS
There are two types of Design Plans , Standard and Building Consent, plus a Building Materials Option.
A) Standard Design

Standard Designs are typically for buildings up to 30m², that have a roof height no greater than 3.5m above floor level and that don't have kitchens nor plumbing services. They also need to be their own height away from boundaries or dwellings and can't have a floor level greater than 1.0m above the ground.
We also offer these plans in an Express Design format for builders experienced in the Building Code.

KITSET PLANS

Most of our designs can be made as kitsets, where all, or a majority of the build is done off-site, or built as partly assembled components for assembly by others on site.
There are two sets of Plans,  Manufacturing and Assembly

D) Manufacturing Plans
SmartPLANZ Manufacturing Plans are ideal for DIYers wanting to save money by building their own kitsets, or for builders wanting to build off -site and also optimise their administration and on-site time.
Kitset

Our Plans include:

a) Full component schematics:
- allowing kitsets to be made off-site with all components numbered for quick and easy on-site assembly

Drawings


b) Prenail Frame Drawings:

- allowing owners or builders to make their own frames - ideal for smaller buildings where prenail supply can have long lead times.
Frames are generally designed for two-man carrying enabling access to tight site locations

Major components
