The IDC applies to any person undertaking infrastructure development within Tauranga City.
Infrastructure development includes:
- Council's capital and/or operational works contracts or professional services agreements.
- Development works regardless of whether the infrastructure will be vested in Council or remain in private ownership.
- Any other form of infrastructure development that will connect to Council’s existing infrastructure network.
The IDC shall be used as the means compliance for designing, constructing, testing and signing off development works. The infrastructure development community (Council, Developers, Consultants, Contractors and Materials Suppliers) shall ensure they are familiar with, understand and utilise the IDC when developing infrastructure or undertaking development works.
Council acknowledges that the development of some infrastructure associated with the capital and/or operational works contracts will not be covered by the IDC e.g. reservoir construction, tunnels, structures, buildings.
In these cases design and construction will be undertaken on an alternative design basis involving project and asset managers, relevant codes and standards and in accordance with accepted industry practice. This alternative design basis is outlined in DS-1.3 Alternative Design.
