News Release 24 October 2006

Shane Brealey Appointed To The Board Of Building Research

Building Research has appointed Shane Brealey to their Board, effective immediately. Shane was nominated to the Board as a representative of the Property Council of New Zealand.

Mr Brealey is the managing director of Auckland based NZ Strong Construction Ltd. Established in 2004, NZ Strong’s mission is to deliver the experience, skills and reputation of a large construction company, but operates with the attitude and efficiencies of a smaller, more customer and project-focused business.

Steve Gentry, the Building Research Board Chairman said, “Shane has a wealth of project management experience in commercial, industrial, retail, healthcare and residential projects, which has enabled him to develop a broad range of skills and contacts across his 22 year career. We are pleased to have a director of his calibre on the Board and we anticipate drawing upon his extensive knowledge and practical skills, which will benefit Building Research.”

Educated at Thames High, Shane has a Bachelor of Civil Engineering from Canterbury University. He lives in Mt Eden with his family and in his spare time he enjoys fishing, golf and watching rugby.

NZ Strong Construction has been responsible for a wide range of Auckland’s most notable projects, including the construction of the Birkenhead Ferry Terminal, Otahuhu Recreation Centre, Auckland Netball Centre and new offices for Sky TV.

Prior to starting NZ Strong, Mr Brealey was the managing director if Multiplex Constructions for five years, and General Manager of Mirvac Developments for four years. He has served on the Property Council of New Zealand and is also involved with the Master Builders Auckland Committee.

Building Research is an independent entity with a primary role of investment in research, technology transfer and scholarship activities. The Building Research Board is drawn widely from the building and construction sector, comprising nominees of the Registered Master Builders’ Federation, Property Council of New Zealand, Building Industry Federation, Institution of Professional Engineers New Zealand, New Zealand Contractors’ Federation, Local Government New Zealand, Business New Zealand, New Zealand Institute of Architects, Housing New Zealand Corporation and New Zealand Building Subcontractors’ Federation. The Board is responsible for determining how the Building Industry Research Levy funds are invested.
