The Property Council and the Centre for Advanced Engineering have called a 2-day industry summit for the construction sector aimed at thinking strategically and acting together to anticipate the long-run impacts of several emerging trends arising from continual pressure on industry capacity.
The summit will be held on Wednesday-Thursday 30-31 May at the Waipuna Hotel & Conference Centre, Mt Wellington.
The 2 organisations want to bring national & international leaders together to analyse current & future market conditions from a range of industry perspectives. The organisations anticipate that cross-sector construction volumes will rise dramatically in the next few years, placing significant pressure on resources.
“For an industry that produces 15% of all goods & services in New Zealand and employs around 14% of the workforce, it’s vital that we understand the extent of the coming resource demand and arrange procurement methods which provide best value for money for owners & project delivery stakeholders.”
The intention of the summit is to examine how project time, cost & quality performance might be affected by key resource shortages and how the construction industry might increase industry capabilities.
