NZIOB launches new skills training workshop series for Construction Managers
The New Zealand Institute of Building (NZIOB) together with building supply merchant Carters, has launched a series of skills training workshops for construction managers, those managing commercial building sites
NZIOB National President Graeme Birkhead, who conceived the Building Legends workshop series, says: “NZIOB has identified that there is a gap in the market for training directed at construction managers, many of whom are struggling with the issues of building in today’s hot,
The first of the Building Legends workshops will be presented by Warren Hollings on ‘Construction Planning’. These workshops will be delivered across three half-day sessions and held in Auckland, Wellington, and Christchurch. The Auckland workshop will run on 18 July, 1 August, and 15 August; the Wellington workshop sessions are scheduled for 22 August, 5 September, and 26 September; and in Christchurch on 29 August, 12 September, and 29 September. The number of places at each will be limited to 20. Participants will be encouraged to test what they’ve learned on their respective sites between sessions and report the results achieved back to the group.

The inspiration for Building Legends was a sell-an event the NZIOB held last year involving industry legend, Warren Hollings (MNZIOB), who provided an overview of his book, ‘Stand and Deliver - Leadership and the Power of Teamwork’. A review of Warren’s book suggested that the publication was “destined to become the modern project manager's go-to text for strategy, planning and harnessing the power of teamwork to achieve outstanding results”.
“The feedback from those attending the Warren Hollings event reinforced the NZIOB’s view that there was a high-level of interest from the younger generation of construction managers to be exposed to experienced industry figures like Warren, who can provide them with relevant and insightful tools and techniques to grow their own capability,” Graeme Birkhead said.
With Carters as its Building Legends partner, NZIOB intends running a second workshop later in the year and delivering a further four workshops on relevant topics in 2019.
