NZIA holds professional training sessions at designex 2013

NZIA holds professional training sessions at designex 2013

The New Zealand Institute of Architects (NZIA) is announcing it is hosting the 2013 NZIA Continual Professional Development (CPD) seminars alongside New Zealand’s leading building and construction industry event, buildnz designex 2013.

Buildnz designex has been running for more than 26 years serving the building, architecture, design and specifier sectors with a biennial three-day exhibition of leading products and services providers, and complimented with seminars for on-going professional training requirements.

Beverley McRae, NZIA Chief Executive says, “It made sense to align our professional development seminars with buildnz designex. Given the large numbers of architect members (and sponsor partners) historically attending this vital industry event, it provides an unequalled opportunity for our members to network with the wider construction industry. We’re looking forward to working with the organisers to deliver a lively event for our members and, indeed, the wider industry.”

Beverley says that NZIA will be working closely with organisers XPO Exhibitions to arrange two full days of seminars for its members. “We’ll be delivering a seminar line-up from leading architects, specifiers and build designers across New Zealand and Australia. There is a serious pipeline of work in the build, design and architectural services and the landscape has never been so challenging.”

“Consider the issues facing our sector – we have the Christchurch rebuild, the growing lack of supply of new home builds in Auckland, and the nationwide rework addressing leaky buildings – all of these issues on a standalone basis are creating a major challenge for the wider industry in the coming years. Consider also the strong pipeline of commercial build projects, and these are very exciting times for the industry, but also times where we must ensure everyone involved is delivering a world-class standard of work.”

The NZIA CPD Days and indeed buildnz designex 2013 will arm the industry with tools, ideas, inspiration and professional training to deliver on that standard.

The NZIA says the co-location is beneficial to share ideas and networking between member architects and builders.

Networking is one area that XPO Exhibitions says it will be looking to improve on with local and central government planning organisations invited to foster better ties between industry and council planning organisations, among others. “We will be approaching major councils and government bodies to be at buildnz designex 2013 to network and talk with members about challenges facing this next phase of growth for the construction and design industries,” says XPO’s managing director, Brent Spillane. “Organisations already closely aligned to buildnz designex 2013 include the Registered Master Builders Federation, Certified Builders Association of New Zealand, Department of Building and Housing, and BRANZ. The Registered Master Builders Federation hosted its own conference at the last buildnz designex. We had more than 5000 industry professional visits across the three days who were all there to see new product offerings and attend a myriad of professional seminar sessions from leading experts, as well as hearing from industry heads and senior members of parliament.

“Visitor attendance at these seminars and, indeed, the NZIA member attendance to CPD days in 2013, will play an important role in maintaining professional qualifications for these trade professionals.”

Other initiatives in 2013 will include:

• NZIA CPD Days – two days of seminars attracting more than 500 member architects

• RMBF lead build seminars – three days of seminars targeted to NZ builders from across the nation

• SPLASH feature – pools and spas

• 200+ exhibitors expected from leading build, design and interiors companies

• Visitor promotion where one lucky attendee will win a brand-new Ford

Buildnz designex 2013 will be held Sunday 23rd to Tuesday 25th June at Auckland's ASB Showgrounds in Greenlane. The event is expected to attract more than 5,000 trade visitors.
