Cogswell Surveys assisted us from the start to completion of our subdivision through numerous difficult changes in scope.

It was an absolute pleasure dealing with them starting in 2014, right up to final completion of the subdivision work and issuing of the final titles in February 2022.

Their communication, estimates, surveying, management, and engineering of the project was exemplary.

We very much appreciated the professional and efficient way the Cogswell team managed our subdivision.

In spite of the early trepidation we quickly became aware we were in good hands as the project moved forward through each of the many steps of the process.

All Cogswell staff we had contact with very friendly, co-operative and good communicators.

Best of all the project was completed and titles issued well within the original cost estimates.

Thank you very much for helping us achieve this outcome of obtaining our new title. I would just like to say it has been an absolute pleasure and hassle free partnership working with your professional people.

Much appreciated.

What seemed like a daunting task at first to subdivide our lifestyle block, the team at Cogswell's looked after us throughout the process making it a much better experience all round. Coming in under budget was the cherry on the top too. We will definitely recommend you to our family and friends.

This was my first time dealing with a subdivision and had no idea where to start. The team at Cogwell's made a clear plan, explained the process and helped through every step of the way, making it a thoroughly enjoyable and simple process. 
I look forward to working with them again in the future.

We have been so impressed with the service provided by Cogswell Surveys.  At all times the communication was outstanding, and everyone that we dealt with along the way was both professional and friendly.  We were given clear updates throughout so that we knew where we were in the process, and what to expect next.  When jobs were to be done on their end, they did them promptly, without unnecessary delays.  We couldn't imagine better service than what we got from Pete and the team, and so would highly recommend them to others.

Thanks for letting us know that the titles have been issued. Because of our wish to push out the completion date, it has been quite a long process. However, we are delighted with the timeline and the outcome.

Our thanks to Cogswell Surveys for all of the great work and guidance on the way through.

Just want to say a big thank you to all the team at Cogswell surveys, even though it has taken longer than we anticipated at first.

Today you have helped us to complete a challenging project, and have consistently acted with a high level of professionalism.  Managing sub-contractors can be a difficult thing at the best of times, and being the people who bring together all the disciplines required to do this can't be easy, but you have done it well and we appreciate your work.

I’ve worked with a number of the team at Cogswell surveys and have found them all great to work with. We subdivided a number of sections in a difficult location and the team were fantastic, they gave us great insight in how to get the best result for us and for our customers while keeping our costs down. 

The team are professional while also being very easy to work with. 

I’d recommend the team at Cogswell to anyone looking for help with these types of projects.

We engaged Cogswell Surveys Ltd in 2019 to prepare a rural subdivision for a single residential dwelling within the Waipa District. The survey work included arranging the purchase of a TDR and obtaining  Resource Consent.

Throughout the subdivision process, the Cogswell team provided sound advice and kept us well informed at each stage. They completed the work in a timely manner and the final fee was within the agreed budget. We were very happy with the final result.

We can recommend Pete McLachlan and his team at Cogswell without reservation.

Cogswell Surveys assisted us with a Cambridge subdivision. We were new to the market and they would have had bigger projects on the go, but they always treated us like we were a priority and we are very happy with their services. We would definitely use them again.

Pete and the whole team at Cogswell were amazing to work with, not only professional and highly skilled but also highly personable - truly great to work with. 
Their expertise helped our project finish on time, on budget and to the highest standard - plus they also had a personal touch which helped give us confidence each step of the way, always willing to answer any questions we had. No matter who we worked with, they were always knowledgeable on our project and had relevant, timely advice. 
Thanks once again to all the team.

After pondering a subdivision of some land we had owned for a period of time and always delaying it as it seemed a complicated process we made the call and reached out to the Cogswell team, they where friendly fast and proactive they assisted with our land use consent and subdivision, the whole process was painless they had all the required contacts and helped in reaching out in every aspect of this job, no questions was a problem and was always clearly communicated, we can’t believe how easy you made this process thanks so much.

Jon Brewer

We completed a subdivision last year (2019) and engaged Cogswell Surveys to assist us with our project.
Having no experience in this type of thing we quickly discovered how helpful and informative Pete and his team were. All along the process Pete “project managed”, “kept us in the loop” of progress and went to “bat” for us when required.
The whole process was very professional and came in under the estimated costs Pete provided at the beginning.
We were very appreciative and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Cogswell Surveys for any further works

Thank you very much for your help with this. Pete and the team have been outstanding as always. 
We enjoyed your professional approach and the fact that we could always get an answer to our questions. Much appreciated, thank you!

I have been working with the team at Cogswell Surveys since they carried out their first subdivision for me in Cambridge in 1993. Since then they have surveyed over 300 residential properties mainly in Cambridge but as far afield as Auckland and Whitianga. I continue to use Cogswell Surveys because they offer me sound advice, good service and developments that I’m proud to be associated with.

Kevin Honiss - Transland Developments

I would like to thank Phil, Pete (and the team) at Cogswell Surveys for the prompt and efficient service that they provided during the recent subdivision of my property. They communicated with me at every step of the way during this process, and ensured that all Council enquiries were handled in a smooth and timely fashion.

Phil Caldwell - Lime Group

Thanks to Cogswell Surveys for the advice and timely service provided over the last 10 years. Their knowledge of Waipa Council requirements and fees has reduced my costs and given me confidence in pursuing opportunities in the Cambridge property market.

Michael Hoogeveen

We recently employed Cogswell Surveys Ltd to help with a project we had undertaken.

Their dealings with the authorities and sub-contractors, handled in such a timely, efficient and professional manner, took all pressure away from us making the project a pleasurable experience.

Merv & Gail Ebbett

Grantchester Farms Ltd has always used Cogswell Surveys as they are local and have a great understanding of the District Plan. They have the respect of the council staff which is invaluable under today’s regulatory environment. Our working relationship is over 12 years old and we look forward to working with them into the future. The Cogswell Survey staff are experienced surveyors and civil engineers and their computer software enables them to produce CAD engineering drawings equal to any company. They often work on projects as a team which means there is always someone in the office you can call on if an issue arises or matter needs clarification.

Matt Smith - St Kilda

A significant factor that has contributed to the success of the BikeNZ programme is the support of local Cambridge businesses such as Cogswell Surveys Ltd.  BikeNZ and the National Track Cycling team would like to thank you for the track survey you performed.  This information will be critical as we work to find even the smallest gains towards future success.

Craig Palmer

Thank you for your excellent service, you have kept us informed all the way and it has been like a seamless exercise thanks to your efficient service. We appreciated your help and advice.

Jill and Bruce Morrison

I dreaded the idea of going through the process of a boundary re alignment. Cogswell's made it such a smooth process and kept in contact with us regularly. The whole process was very smooth and easy for us. The team are very professional and most of all very efficient at getting the job done in a strict time frame.

Woburn Farm

Pete at Cogswell’s has been a fantastic help with our subdivision application and has made the whole process of putting our application through the Council painless, on time and very straight forward.

Andrew Mitchem

In particular, we were impressed with the clear and simple explanations given to us. No matter which staff member we have dealt with the communication has been friendly, patient and professional and we believe this is a strength in any business.
