We had a massive turnout at the IPWEA Northern Branch meeting on 15 August 2019, with 71 people attending at Waihi Academy and hosted by Hauraki District Council, says branch chair Cushla Anich, Director Morrison Low.
IPWEA NZ will be celebrating the launch of its Digital Badging programme at the offices of Morrison Low in Wellington on Thursday 26 September. Digital Badging is about building careers in infrastructure asset management with industry recognised microcredentials.
We’re excited to welcome Shalan Rao to our Sydney-based team to provide specialist support to ensure our clients get best value from their procurement processes.
Morrison Low is working with a number of the merged councils to establish new, equitable rating structures, harmonising rates across each LGA. These councils are using the opportunity to revisit first principles, aligning council revenue strategy with service level commitments and the funding requirements for services and infrastructure.
The latest announcement about three waters reform is out and is broadly in line with what was expected. There has been no backward step by the government.
Morrison Low is thrilled to join the NAMS Partner Programme in New Zealand to support the industry and provide strategic thinking around asset management as a solution to infrastructure issues.
Morrison Low is delighted to announce the appointment of Julie Savet Ward as a non-executive director of Morrison Low Holdings.
At Morrison Low we are proud to have Joan Davidson, current Chair of the Young Water Professionals, on our team. Joan will be attending the 2018 Water NZ Conference & Expo next week in acknowledgement of 60 years of Water New Zealand.
After a sprint in August 2017 to have Section 17A service reviews completed we are seeing a number of councils take a more considered approach to service reviews in 2018. With the statutory compliance aspect now in the past, councils are now seemingly realising the benefits of undertaking a comprehensive review of services.
With the New Zealand Government reviewing how the three waters (drinking water, wastewater and stormwater) are managed, it appears that New Zealand is on the cusp of significant change to the way the water industry operates.
