Upcoming NZIOB Events:

NZIOB CR Site Visit: Tākina - the Wellington Convention and Exhibition Centre

Thursday 09 June 2022 at 4:30 PM, 50 Cable Street, Te Aro, Wellington

Wellington’s new Convention and Exhibition Centre (Tākina) has a unique sculptural form that draws inspiration from a wide range of sources including its maritime location, Wellington's dramatic, and sometimes wild, weather patterns, and landforms. 

Tākina has reached the halfway point of construction with the exterior nearing completion. The internal spaces are being formed and fit-out works are underway. This tour is an excellent opportunity to see the build in progress and hear how the wider team has engaged through the design process, coordinating across multiple disciplines to realise the design.

Only 30 spaces are available. 

PPE Requirements: Hard Hat, Steel-capped Boots and a High-Vis Vest

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

This event is now sold out - please add your name to the WAITLIST and we will be in touch if any space becomes available.

NZIOB National Student Awards

Tuesday 01 March 2022 at 8:00 AM, Enter online

The NZIOB has a long history of running regional student awards programmes. For 2022 onwards, the Institute’s three regional awards are replaced with a single national programme, the NZIOB National Student Awards.

The key point of difference between this student awards programmes and other established student awards programmes, is that the NZIOB National Student Awards provide an opportunity for students to be recognised by the full construction industry, versus one profession within the industry. There is a category for all students who are undertaking a course of study or trade that is aligned with construction.

Entries are now open and close on 31 May 2022.
