    Each year, Infrastructure New Zealand leads a delegation of senior public and private sector leaders overseas to explore new ideas and approaches to delivering infrastructure. In March 2019, we are pleased to announce that we will be travelling to Singapore, Hong Kong, Beijing and Shanghai to investigate:

    1. Road pricing

    This year ET is holding a series of close-knit interactive sessions with industry leaders exclusively for our members.  We call it ‘The Inner Circle’.

    An industry expert will provide you with coffee from 10am-11am and lead a discussion on a hot infrastructure topic in their boardroom. Spaces are limited to 8 people so you'll need to be quick to snap up your place at the table. Our vision is that you will participate as well as listen. Bring your questions and opinions along, find out about the experts, and what they are leading in their sector. 

    We will run 4-6 of these sessions this year – topic and speaker suggestions are most welcome. Because of limited space you are eligible to attend one Inner Circle session per year to ensure the opportunity is shared amongst the Emerging Talent Network. One representative per organisation at each session.

    Our first The Inner Circle is: Auckland Housing - what’s actually being done to provide affordable housing in Auckland?

    We know this is a topic that sets the opinion pot to boiling so we've got James Leach, an industry leader from the Piritahi Alliance, to stoke the discussion and provide his insight.

    The Piritahi Alliance is a civils alliance delivering $1.4Bn of land development and infrastructure work on government-owned land in Auckland over the next 5 years. This work will give HLC scale to deliver large developments at pace. The developments are generally located around Auckland’s proposed light rail routes.

    Check out our experts' bios below, and if this sounds like a bit of you, register now.

    Infrastructure New Zealand, in partnership with BNZ, are pleased to invite you to our first Emerging Talent Network Auckland event for 2019: Infrastructure Funding and Financing: Crown Infrastructure Partners.

    Crown Infrastructure Partners (‘CIP’ - formally Crown Fibre Holdings) was established in 2009 to direct and manage the New Zealand Government's $1.5 billion investment in ultra-fast broadband services for New Zealanders living in urban areas. CIP was repurposed in 2017 to achieve the Government’s objectives for the deployment of water and roading infrastructure to support a timely increase in housing supply.

    In November 2018, CIP entered a partnership with Auckland Council and Fulton Hogan for the Milldale Project which will fund $91m of roading and wastewater infrastructure to service 9,000 homes at Wainui, north of Auckland.

    Sean Wynne, Deputy CEO - CIP will present and provide a background on the history of CIP; their successful fibre past along with details of the Milldale Project itself.   

    This will be followed by a short panel discussion with individuals directly involved in the structuring and financing of the Milldale Project. They will discuss their role in the transaction, challenges overcome, key insights from the Project, and applicability to other infrastructure asset classes going forward.

    Kindly sponsored by BNZ, the evening will conclude with networking and refreshments.

    • Harrison Grierson, Level 4, St Georges Bay Road, Parnell, Auckland

    An important part of the delegation process is to synthesise the lessons learned for New Zealand.

    Please join us as we workshop the key findings from the Delegation to Asia, and develop recommendations for the report that will be produced by Infrastructure NZ.

    Networking and refreshments will follow the workshop, thanks to the generous hospitality of Harrison Grierson.

    We would very much value your contribution to this important workshop session.
