NZIOB CPD Events: Professional development opportunities

News from the


Alongside our traditional social gatherings, we have some excellent professional development events in the pipeline. These events provide NZIOB members with a choice of options to accumulate Continuing Professional Development (CPD) credits throughout 2020. Non-members are also welcome to attend these events.
The Building Legends Extension of Time (EoT) workshops in Auckland and Wellington are currently underway. Run by the NZIOB in partnership with Carters, the workshops are hosted by industry legends, passing on their knowledge to develop tomorrow’s industry legends. The two-session EoT workshops provide Construction Managers and Project Managers with the tools to become more effective with EoT claims. Feedback from the sold-out 2019 EoT workshops included: “Excellent workshop with contrasting views. Very relevant for wider industry development. Great content.” Planning for the next Building Legends workshop is in progress, with the new topic confirmed as Design Management. Follow us on Facebook and LinkedIn to stay informed about new dates and locations.
Our Central Region Committee has been busy organising a site visit to Cuba Precinct, scheduled for the 2nd of April. Located in the centre of popular Cuba Street, the Cuba Precinct is being redeveloped by Willis Bond & Co across three sites. Highlights of the visit will include an insight into the retention methods of heritage features, the opportunity to view key structural elements, and a behind the scenes look into the future developments in the area. NZIOB members and non-members are welcome to attend, and ticket sales will open shortly.
On 21 October in Auckland, NZIOB will be hosting Built to Last – a one-day conference where participants will hear from industry experts on global best practice in the areas of technology, procurement, wellbeing, and sustainability. The overriding proposition of Built to Last is that the building industry should be designing and delivering buildings for a built environment (and planet) that are built to last, whilst there should be a simultaneous focus on ensuring that the people and companies who make up the building industry, are themselves built to last. The NZIOB will assemble an inspiring speaker line-up to address this central theme. Registrations will open in April 2020 – meanwhile, save the date and register your interest in attending.
