Setting a platform to advance infrastructure development in New Zealand is top of the agenda at a major infrastructure symposium in Auckland this week.
The New Zealand Council for Infrastructure Development Building Nations Symposium, held at Eden Park from 13-14 August, has attracted a line-up of local and international stakeholders and experts in infrastructure including Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister Dr Michael Cullen, Opposition Leader John Key and leading international public private partnership expert Nicolas Corral of Spain.
Bell Gully partners Garry Downs and Hugh Kettle will also deliver a session for delegates. They will discuss the effective allocation of risk in infrastructure projects, outlining the steps in understanding the objectives of a project, understanding the stakeholders and their needs, identifying the risks, and allocating and minimising those risks.
The New Zealand Council for Infrastructure Development is an organisation at the forefront of infrastructure development issues with members from diverse sectors, including equity owners, service providers, public sector agencies, and major infrastructure users. The council promotes best practice in national infrastructure development through research, advocacy and public and private sector collaboration.
Bell Gully is a member of council and members of the firm's multi-disciplinary Infrastructure and Projects Group are involved in a range of developments around the country from renewable energy projects to the Britomart precinct and the redevelopment of Auckland's Tank Farm area into a world-class waterfront.
