Clever Living Co. homes come with an MBIE MultiProof approval for a faster building consent process. In fact, it can cut the building consent time in half. Keep in mind, planning permission and often resource consent is still required – here are the ins and outs.

Building consent in a nutshell: because you have a MultiProof for the design, the BCA can process your building consent application within 10 working days instead of the usual 20.*

What is MultiProof?

Multiple-use approval for standardised building designs like Clever Living Co. is confirmation from the MBIE that these specific building plans and specifications comply with the New Zealand Building Code (NZBC).

How it works:

Your MultiProof design is compliant with the NZBC, however you still need to apply for a building consent each time you want to build. This allows the Building Consent Authority (BCA) to confirm:

  • The design, with any permitted variations, is the same as the design approved in the MultiProof
  • The proposed site meets the conditions of the MultiProof
  • Any site-specific features comply with the NZBC
  • Which inspections are required

*Merino Series does not have MultiProof therefore the consent process may take longer.

All building materials and inclusions are subject to change and maybe substituted prior to order confirmation. Resource consents, building consents and necessary planning permission are still required to be eligible for a Code Compliance Certificate.”
