Who’s working in infrastructure? A baseline report

This research by the New Zealand Infrastructure Commission provides the first comprehensive baseline analysis of New Zealand’s infrastructure workforce. It looks at how many people work in the infrastructure sector and what sort of work they’re doing. The research also investigates who is working in infrastructure, looking at factors like age, ethnicity, gender, training, and migration. The findings shed light on who is working in infrastructure and the pathways that they follow into the workforce.

Construction Sector Accord Beacon 2023 case study - Building in pursuit of Kaitiakitanga

The Living Pā is the bold redevelopment of Te Herenga Waka Marae into one of the world’s most environmentally responsible hubs.

Construction Sector Accord Beacon 2023 case study - Building in pursuit of Kaitiakitanga

The Living Pā is the bold redevelopment of Te Herenga Waka Marae into one of the world’s most environmentally responsible hubs.

This 3-storied, timber mega structure on high-profile 980sqm urban, mixed-use site on steep excavated land, adjacent to several multi-storey institutional buildings that restrict solar access is targeting Living Building certification under the LBC framework which requires the pā to be net positive in energy, carbon, water, and waste, and demonstrably give back to the local ecology and community.

The Living Pā one of the largest-scale buildings to work towards Living Building certification. This comes with many firsts for Aotearoa, each bringing a unique suite of challenges. It is the first mass timber building to target the Living Building Challenge, and the first mass timber building undertaken by the contractor. It is one of only a few mass timber buildings in Aotearoa.

Construction Sector Accord Beacon 2023 case study - Offsite manufacturing delivers multi-storey timber frame apartments

This case study showcases how a multi-storey timber frame apartment complex across three six-storey buildings containing 216 modules is being constructed with offsite manufacturing.

Construction Sector Accord Beacon 2023 case study - Offsite manufacturing delivers multi-storey timber frame apartments

This case study showcases how a multi-storey timber frame apartment complex across three six-storey buildings containing 216 modules is being constructed with offsite manufacturing.

After seeing a market demand for suppliers who could deliver quality housing at pace and scale, Property Partners decided to investigate offsite-manufacturing. They started researching offsite manufacturing methods around the world, and ultimately decided that the Swedish model was the best approach for them to bring to the New Zealand market.

Read the case study

While the use of offsite manufacturing techniques is becoming increasingly popular around New Zealand for small-scale builds, Property Partners wanted to use timber volumetric modular construction, a form of offsite manufacturing in which buildings are put together by connecting a series of pre-built modules and stacking them vertically to build apartments. This offsite manufacturing method is common in Sweden and globally.

Winstone Aggregates science based positive biodiversity programme

Winstone Aggregates is committed to kaitiakitanga - and being excellent custodians of the planet - both now and for generations to come.

Winstone Aggregates has bold ambitions for rehabilitating the environments and ecosystems they work in, supporting local people and communities, and constantly resetting the standard for sustainability that others will aspire to.

Winstone Aggregates' goal is to positively impact our environment, through restoring our already existing forest ecosystems around Aotearoa. To do this they've developed a framework with Nature Positive that is consistent with the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and have adopted the Biodiversity Indicator & Reporting System (BIRS). They’re also working with Mana Whenua to weave in Mātauranga Māori frameworks, which will further strengthen the strategy.

Anglian Water's world leading approach to carbon zero

Anglian Water is a world leader in reducing carbon emissions. As an early starter, the big UK water utility embarked on its carbon zero journey in 2006 and is now on track to generate 45 percent of energy from its own renewable resources by 2025 and become a full net zero carbon business by 2030.

In this Spotify podcast Jon Reed and Hannah Edmond from the Water New Zealand climate change group talk to Anglian Water’s head of carbon neutrality, David Riley about the water utility’s bold approach to tackling climate change and the carbon reduction lens covering all aspects of its operation.

NZ Concrete Industry's 2050 roadmap to net zero carbon

NZ Concrete Industry's 2050 roadmap to net zero carbon

Last August, Aotearoa New Zealand’s concrete industry launched its roadmap to net zero carbon by 2050.

Concrete New Zealand (NZ) chief executive Rob Gaimster says the publication of the roadmap is a pivotal moment for the concrete industry and the country’s built environment.

“We must provide adaptive solutions that address and help ease the impacts of climate change in a country that is also at risk of earthquakes, tsunamis and volcanoes.

“As well as contributing to our nation’s resilience, the concrete industry is committed to being part of efforts to mitigate climate change.

“This roadmap represents a collective effort, combining the expertise, ingenuity, and commitment of the concrete industry and wider construction sector, to meeting our environmental responsibilities. It builds on global cement and concrete industry progress to achieve net zero carbon emissions which has been recognised by the United Nations.”

Construction Sector Accord Beacon 2023 case study - Te Wānanga o Raukawa

Construction Sector Accord Beacon 2023 case study - Te Wānanga o Raukawa

Te Ao Māori values support successful outcomes for the Client, project team and the planet through The Te Wānanga o Raukawa Living Building Project in Ōtaki.

Four new buildings were recently completed at the Ōtaki campus of Te Wānanga o Raukawa. Led by tohunga, the buildings were named and dedicated in May 2023 by members of Te Āti Awa, Ngāti Raukawa and Ngāti Toa Rangatira. They were joined by workers and contractors from McMillan Lockwood, Pritchards Civil Engineers, Tennent Brown Architects, and students, kaiāwhina and staff.

The buildings are named Waitapu, Rangataua, Miria te Kakara, and Te Moana o Raukawa. The names are taken from the whakatauki (saying): "Mai i Waitapu ki Rangataua, mai i Miria te Kakara ki Whitireia, whakawhitia Te Moana o Raukawa ki Wairau ki Whakatū," which describes the rohe of the three iwi.

The naming of these buildings is the culmination of a project which began prior to the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 and has faced all the challenges that have arisen since then. From early fears of recession through to cost escalations and supply chain issues, the client, architect, quantity surveyor, contractor and sub-contractors have worked collaboratively to achieve an outcome which they all agree has been a huge success on many levels.
