Upcoming Events

Meeting of the Waters Workshop


New Plymouth




2:00 PM


The three waters - clear water, black-water and run-off water, (also known as potable, sewage and storm water) are the subject of frequent debate. Further, the construction and installation of the services to deal with them is an increasingly complex infrastructural issue.


Effective and reliable means to dispose of sewage and stormwater coupled with the growing demands of population and urban growth have led to a wide range of site-specific design solutions for high-risk properties. Naturally, there is now a strong appetite among planners, designers, installers and owners for good science and guidance about the solutions at hand.


The Building Interest Group (BIG) is facilitating an educational workshop on the subject with the aim of increasing awareness and demonstrating problem-solving tricks to the very people who need it – that is, all designers, surveyors, engineers, builders, plumbers and drainlayers, and building consent authority staff.


This workshop addresses best practice in these areas and is presented and facilitated by Bill Wright, a man whose wide experience and troubleshooting capabilities qualify him to present and lead the interactive discussion.


Bill is the director of WSquared Training & Consultancy which specialises in design and regulatory advice to practitioners and councils across the country. His familiarity with the subject and range of solutions will boost your current knowledge and ability to think it through!


Your presence at the workshop will earn you a certificate of attendance to attach to your training records and as evidence for CPD points. You will also get a workbook, and food and drink will also be provided to sustain you through the learning.


When: Thursday 27 July 2017, 2pm to 7pm

Where:  Civic Centre, Liardet Street, New Plymouth

Cost:  $65 + GST


Please register for the event and pay online at //  by 5pm, 21 July.

We look forward to a good attendance and lively session!
