    Building Nations 2018 – Lifting the Vision, Creating Value

    Building Nations is the premier event on New Zealand’s infrastructure calendar. The two-day Symposium provides the opportunity for public and private sectors to come together to progress thinking and advance best practice in national infrastructure development. At its heart, the conference is about discussing and agreeing what must be done to ensure New Zealand’s infrastructure is not just fit-for-purpose, but that our infrastructure supports sustained improvement in the quality of life for all New Zealanders, now and into the future.

    Building Nations is the forum for Ministers and key public officials to announce major infrastructure policy directions, and sets Infrastructure NZ’s agenda for action for, and on behalf of, its members. This year, the focus areas will include: Housing, Technology, Transport Funding, Leveraging Rail, Enabling Growth, Water, Governance, Planning and Funding, Lifting Capacity and Regional Infrastructure Development.

    Attended by over 550 industry and public sector leaders annually, Building Nations provides sponsors with an unparalleled opportunity for profile amongst the leaders of the country and the infrastructure industry. For sponsorship opportunities, please contact Sarah Lang on 021 733 434 or via email sarah.lang@infrastructure.org.nz.

    Chairman Patrick Brockie, on behalf of Infrastructure NZ, is delighted to host a private breakfast - Are You Future Ready for 2050?

    As Auckland strives to be the “World’s Most Liveable City” by 2040, we shine a spotlight on the future impacts of the mega-trends surrounding Climate, Society, Resources and Technology.

    • Auckland is committed to 40 per cent emissions reduction by 2040. Is that achievable when the majority of the city’s Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions are from stationary energy generation and transport?
    • Sea levels are forecast to rise by 30cms by 2050 or significantly sooner if the West Antarctic ice shelf melts at current rates. Are we designing future assets with that in mind?
    • Auckland’s population will increase by 39% by 2043. Are policy makers, agencies and industry considering changes in demographic and health and well-being trends?
    • The water network will be expanded to supply an additional 195,000 homes during the next decade. Are we able to collectively respond to that demand without compromising the reliably, safety, quality and efficiency of the water supply?
    • After the 2011 Christchurch earthquakes, one of the key lessons was ensuring the provision of access to public Wi-Fi. Have we got adequate technology infrastructure in place to meet the needs of the swelling population, as well as to respond well to more frequent natural disasters?
    We invite you to hear from David Symons, Director at WSP in London, about the work he is undertaking with the public and private sectors to help them respond to the mega-trends, specifically in relation to resilient communities, business growth and risk management. David will showcase best-practice examples from Shell and Lendlease, and various leading transport agencies and municipal councils.

    Following the launch of the Christchurch Women’s Infrastructure (WIN) Chapter in February earlier this year, the Christchurch WIN network in partnership with Infrastructure NZ are delighted to invite you to an evening of discussion on “Transferable Skills”, featuring keynote speaker Sina Cotter-Tait and an industry panel, comprising of:

    ·         Di Walsh – GM People Fulton Hogan
    ·         Hannah Eastwood – Hays recruitment
    ·         Chris Maguire – Stantec

    The evening will focus on “Transferable Skills”, and will address topics such as:

    ·         Re-entering workforce after family – what to apply for?
    ·         Moving up in the world -  how to look for options that suit my skill set.
    ·         What are my skills?
    ·         How to move between companies, roles, even industries. 

    The event will commence with registration from 5pm, for a 5:30pm kick off. Sina Cotter-Tait will speak about her life experiences and insight on “Transferable Skills”, and a panel discussion will follow.  Kindly sponsored by EY, you are invited to enjoy nibbles and drinks from 6:30pm.

    To secure your place, please register your attendance online by Friday 17 August, 2018.

    In consultation with Treasury, and through them the Ministers’ offices, we have decided to postpone this event until later in the year.

    This allows time for Cabinet to approve consultation on options for alternative funding and financing methods.

    We consider it was better to postpone the workshop thereby enabling more substantive discussion on the options under consideration.

    We will revise this event in late September once a new date can be agreed with Ministers.

    Kind regards,

    Stephen Selwood
    Chief Executive

    The way New Zealand funds and finances urban growth is not keeping up with demand for housing, access and services. The Government is investigating new and different ways to support development and wants to hear from industry.

    Infrastructure New Zealand in partnership with ANZ and Chapman Tripp is pleased to invite you to a one day infrastructure funding and financing workshop which will be followed by a unique opportunity to engage senior Government Ministers.

    The workshop will provide industry with a forum to discuss urban development challenges as well as options to overcome problems. Following the workshop, Finance Minister Grant Robertson, Transport and Urban Development Minister Phil Twyford and Infrastructure Minister Shane Jones will outline current Government thinking and seek feedback.

    This is your opportunity to shape a critical aspect of public policy. Attendance is strictly limited to one representative per member organisation.
