IPWEA NZ 2019 Key Achievements
What have we done!?
for you this year...
Our focus is support you in achieving excellence in engineering and asset management for sustainable communities. Below is a list of the work and achievements that have been keeping us busy in 2019:
Released our Outcomes Document from the November 2018 NAMS Forum -
Increase in training
offerings and range – increased number of Writing AMPS courses across NZ to assist with Long Term Planning needs.
Microcredentials - Digital Badging
– over 120 people enrolled since September. This has been developed from our Fostering our Futures work by Vaughn Crowther. And has been in collaboration and with the support of
Tertiary Education Commission (TEC).
Built a new
Road Network Performance Monitoring & Management Guideline
has now been released -
A draft document has been prepared for REG entitled
Candidate Selection Algorithm (CSA).
CSA is used to forecast the timing and treatment required to maintain roads in good condition for the least whole-of-life cost in the short to medium term.
And for a bit of nostalgia
– but still very relevant today – two video links:
Ride of a Lifetime
- A short film on Asset Management. From the archives, this 19-minute video about, "Managing our Community Assets", is presented by the one and only David Lange. Filmed in 2004, it features Mayors, councillors and Council Engineers, describing what Asset Management is, and why we need it.
The other is “Tips for the New Car Owner” – about asset management and what’s under the hood. And in addition to mayors and managers, it includes the Auditor General at the time Kevin Brady. -

Myles Lind appointed as
Chair of the Canadian
Board of IPWEA.
Introduced a new Award Category – Environment and
Sustainability Excellence Award
– sponsored by Morphum Environmental
was last updated in 2015. Much has changed and the need for the document to be digital and more interactive.
The IIMM Review
has begun with workshops held in Wellington and Sydney to develop the case for change – scope of contact and delivery platform. Attendees developed 3 scenarios – Refresh, Reshape, Repurpose. The main differences are about the type of digital platform and the staging of the changes. The draft business cases for each have been brought together into one case which will go to the Australasian and NZ Boards early next year.
LDEG leading a review of unified approach
to subdivision and land development and standard NZS 4404. A case for change will be presented to the LDEG forum, 19-20 March 2020.
