Southern Region Scott Base: New Zealand's coolest Redevelopment

Thursday 24 March 2022 at 5:30 PM, Novotel Christchurch Cathedral Square

The redevelopment of Scott Base, New Zealand’s home in Antarctica, is the largest and most complex project ever undertaken by Antarctica New Zealand.
The redevelopment of Scott Base will see the aging infrastructure replaced with a safe, fit-for-purpose, and sustainable research facility that will support New Zealand’s presence in the Ross Sea region of Antarctica for the next 50 years.
The new base will continue Aotearoa’s long legacy on the icy continent and strengthen our ability to support world-leading research in one of the most remote places on the planet!
Consisting of three interconnected buildings that can accommodate up to 100 people, the new base will include an accommodation, dining and welfare building, a science and management building, and an engineering and storage building.
Due to the remote location and short summer period, the window to build in Antarctica is small. The plan is to pre-construct all buildings at PrimePort Timaru in New Zealand and ship them to Antarctica on a large heavy transport vessel in large modular sections. Specialised trailers will be used to transport the building sections on and off the vessel and into final position at Scott Base.
The existing base will be deconstructed and returned to New Zealand, along with all waste, equipment and materials.
The new base is planned to be up and running in 2028.
The ultimate ‘Built to Last’ case study, this event will examine the core topics of resilience, technology and wellbeing in what is arguably the harshest environment in the world.

Speakers: Simon Shelton, Iain Miller, Will Parker 

Cost: Free for NZIOB Members* / $25 +GST for Non-Members

NZIOB/NAWIC Panel Discussion: Construction Risk Allocation

Tuesday 15 February 2022 at 3:30 PM, 3:30pm, Theatre Royal Gloucester Room, 145 Gloucester Street, Christchurch

The NZIOB Southern Region Committee is hosting a joint event with NAWIC to explore Construction Risk Allocation.

Are standardised industry agreements fair for all parties and projects? Is standardisation actually realistic? Should consultant IP be protected or more freely shared? What are the cost implications? If my insurer can’t fully protect me, how do I go about mitigating or re-allocating procurement risk and liability?

A panel of industry leaders has been selected to discuss this vital topical issue and share their insights, with a war story or two.

Panelists:
Donald Gardner – Head of Construction, Marsh Limited
Gary Walker – CEO Leighs Construction Limited
Russell Pyne – Regional Manager for Fletcher Living (former General Manager Development Ngai Tahu)
Helen Trappitt – Director Lewis Bradford Structural Engineers
Colin Corsbie – Technical Principal, Architecture WSP

Barrister Richard Johnstone from Left Bank Chambers (who many of you will know from our Legal Breakfasts) will be compère for the session.

Free for NZIOB Members & $25 + GST for Non-Members
