In June 2013, during the Ingenium (now IPWEA NZ) Conference in Dunedin, I presented my paper “Infrastructure Management – Forecasting the Changes to 2030.”
Below are the links to the PDF and Powerpoint versions of the paper.
Ingenium Conference 2013, Dunedin, June 2013
New Zealand’s infrastructure management practice has grown and developed over the past two decades. The November 2012 NAMS Forum concluded that the development of practice had plateaued and that fresh direction and emphasis was needed.
Multiple trends continue to impact our communities, their requirement for services, and subsequently the infrastructure and assets that are required to provide these services.
These trends will be summarized and then used to forecast changes that will be required in infrastructure management through to 2030.
The forecast will be developed to provide infrastructure custodians and managers with thought-provoking challenges, opportunities, and guidance as to the pathways forward.
