BRIEF

Veros were appointed as development managers in early 2020 to lead the delivery of Maea Fields, a residential subdivision on the 19.4ha greenfield site.

OVERVIEW

It is anticipated that this project will deliver approximately 280 sections across several stages. Maea Fields will provide for much needed urban growth within Matamata over the next 8 years. More importantly, the subdivision will seek to deliver different housing product and section sizes, ensuring a wide spectrum of housing options from which buyers may choose from.

Veros is responsible for the development of the masterplan and its delivery through consenting, detailed design, and procurement phases, including marketing and pre-sales.

Having been given the opportunity lead the development of the masterplan, our team has been able to ensure the most effective and efficient use of the land with consideration to the characteristics of the site, infrastructure requirements and residential market. Importantly, the masterplan will deliver a unique and affordable market offering that will be critical during changing economic conditions.

Furthermore, the client has benefitted from the broad range of technical expertise our Development Management team has to offer. In particular, the depth of experience and understanding of the team has ensured the development of an innovative and efficient stormwater management solution to maintain a feasible and sustainable subdivision layout.

The name Maea Fields is drawn from both the historical productive land use of the site for growing vegetables and the presence of the Kaimai Ranges to the east, with Maea meaning “to emerge, arise, appear, become visible, com into view, come up, surface” in Maori.
