Jeremy Earle won the Projects over $50 Million category at the 2023 NZ Building People Awards. Jeremy is a Construction Manager at Southbase Construction, he was awarded for his work on the build at Wakatipu High School, Tahuna | Queenstown. 

The judges said of Jeremy, “What impressed us most about Jeremy was his empathy for people, especially his team, his encouragement for diversity and making sure he selected a team that worked well with the client, and then appreciating that being a younger team he need to look after their wellness and ensure they did not feel isolated.”

We asked Jeremy a few questions to get to know him better.

New guidance for ‘digital first’ in the built environment

Posted on Wednesday 17 January, 2024

The ‘Digital Guidance Suite’, or DigiGuide, which includes a Value Case for digital first strategies and the New Zealand Handbook for Building Information Management (BIM) processes, has been released and is available to download.

The documents in the DigiGuide suite will help those working in the built environment to get on the same page when comes to digital. The documents have come out of the ‘Digital BIM Guidance Project’ led by the New Zealand Institute of Building and the BIMinNZ Steering Group with input from a broad range of construction and infrastructure industry subject matter experts. This project was funded by the Construction Sector Accord through its Innovation workstream.

 

Digital Triplets: Construction Industry collaboration improving productivity through clarity and consistency  

Posted on Thursday 30 November, 2023

We commonly hear that the construction sector is fragmented and suffering from a lack of collaboration, however collaborating organisations are working hard to change that.

The New Zealand Construction Industry Council (NZCIC), the NZ Institute of Building (NZIOB), and Te Waihanga | NZ Infrastructure Commission are all leaders of change responding to the Construction Sector Accord’s Transformation Plan.

This month sees the launch of three guidelines that have all been revised and better digitised to improve productivity, mitigate and fairly allocate risk, and future proofing the built environment. These projects are the culmination of years of effort from across the sector, representing strong collaboration between Government and Industry groups.
