Join our presenters Cameron Belliss, and Nick Bamford as they share their knowledge on designing structures for efficiency in the New Zealand construction industry.

This seminar aims to:

Provide insight into how structures get built, and what’s required in terms of temporary works and logistics.

Understand the importance of construction tolerance and how to provide for it in design.

Worked examples of real-life projects and how the designs could be altered to better suit construction practices and ultimately the ease and cost of building.

Provide an opportunity for designers to discuss their designs with peers working for main contractors and work through problems or issues they’ve encountered.

Discuss the consequences of designs that aren’t inherently stable until construction is complete.

Discuss examples of real Safety in Design that would make buildings safer to construct and thereby provide other tangible benefits.

Gain an understanding of “preliminaries and generals” and how they can have a significant influence on construction cost.

Please note: Our priority is to maintain a safe environment for our seminar attendees. Some venues may require attendees to wear masks at all times.
