The Temporary Works forum (NZ) has been established to encourage open discussion on any matter related to Temporary Works, for the benefit of the New Zealand Construction Industry.

Aims and Objectives
  • Give authoritative guidance and when required professional leadership to the industry;
  • Consider aspects of permanent works and interfaces between permanent works and temporary works as are relevant;
  • Consider both current practice and likely development;
  • Be aware of trends and innovations in design, construction and use.
    This remit will be delivered by, for example:
  • providing a forum for reasoned debate;
  • arranging seminars and meetings for opinion formers and experts;
  • providing and contributing to education and guidance material;
  • seeking close working relationships with others; and
  • influencing industry and others.
