Building Legends Workshop: Design Management (Auckland)

Monday 03 October 2022 at 3:00 PM, Parnell Conference Centre, 10 - 20 Gladstone Road, Parnell, Auckland 1052

Design Management

Good Design Managers are in hot demand in New Zealand at the moment.

Whether it is at the front end i.e. Design & Build or Early Contractor Involvement contracts, or at the back end dealing with a poorly coordinated set of tender drawings. Many Design Managers are self taught and have picked up experience on the job.

The New Zealand Institute of Building have brought together industry leaders in design management to present an in depth interactive session on best practice from both New Zealand and international experience.

Sign up for what promises to be the most popular New Zealand Institute of Building Building Legends session yet. 

Session 1: Monday 3 October 2022 (3:00pm-6:00pm)
Session 2: Monday 17 October 2022 (3:00pm-6:00pm)

Speakers: Dan Bosher, Icon; Jennifer Boyce, NZ Strong; Jamie Vallance, NZ Strong and Shara Paulo, Ignite Architects.

$475 +GST for NZIOB Members / $575 +GST for Non-Members (this covers both sessions).

NZIOB/NAWIC CR Site Visit: AroLiving (Wellington)

Thursday 27 October 2022 at 4:45 PM, 255 Willis Street, Wellington

The last of its kind, in the heart of Wellington CBD.

Join NZIOB and NAWIC members for a site tour of the mid-construction AroLiving with Aoraki Construction.

ARO represents what we consider to be the very last opportunity in Wellington's CBD for fee-simple, freehold terraced housing. Changes in regulatory planning now strongly favours higher density, multi-rise developments: meaning developments like ARO, with its low-rise laneway living will become extremely difficult to execute. 

The facts:

We look forward to seeing you there!

There is a limit of 25 NZ Institute of Building attendees for this event, so register early to avoid missing out.  This event will fill quickly!

Date:     Thursday 27 October 2022
Time:    Gather at Aoraki's site entrance 4:45pm 
Venue:  255 Willis Street, Wellington; followed by networking
Cost:     Free for NZ Institute of Building members; $20 + GST for Non-members
CPD:     3 credits
PPE Requirements: Time to kit up, hardhat, steel caps and high vis vest are all required.  Weather dependent, you may also wish to bring a jacket.
