Big show presents new technology


More than 100 stands presenting new technology and a series of topical seminars and breakfast forums will inspire visitors from all key sectors of the construction industry at BuildNZ 07, which runs at the ASB Showgrounds in Auckland from June 24 to 26.

Billed as New Zealand’s largest and most important construction industry expo, the two-yearly event features technology from manufacturers nationwide and around the world. Speakers at the keynote lecture sponsored by Vector will be prominent Australian architects Lindsay and Kerry Clare. Their lecture will be CPD accredited.

“People and Homes of the Future” will be the topic of a seminar presented by Neil Henson, principal of Fashion Bytes, an Australian leader in forecasting social trends and how they will impact on design. 

The Registered Master Builders Federation will have a significant presence at BuildNZ, and the Department of Housing and the NZ Institute of Building will also be involved. RMBF chief executive Pieter Burghout will make a presentation on Builder Prospects & Licensing — an Industry Perspective.
BRANZ principal writer Trevor Pringle will also present two valuable and relevant seminars on the E2/AS1 Risk Matrix and a look at good design.
