The engineering regulation in NZ is a system that must be able to adapt to a changing public landscape. While any practical person can perform engineering work on buildings that are not restricted under licensed building code, it requires an assessed building practitioner to carry out construction work that is essential to the structure or […]
Flow batteries have become a popular choice in the development of large-scale energy storage systems due to their helpful features. They offer very long cycle life, low-cost options for applications that depend on high energy to power ratios, as well as high energy efficiencies. They are useful for electric power customers which include industries and […]
Engineers play an important role in ensuring the building process runs smoothly and applicable laws are followed. BCAs rely on engineers to ensure that where a project does not have building consent, it will not be constructed. This ruling shows MBIE and BCAs take this responsibility seriously. BCAs can also raise complaints with us when engineers supervise […]
Begg built several F5000 cars, including the FM2 then FM4, FM5 and 018. The 018, as originally raced by Jim Murdoch, and ex David Oxton and Allan McCully FM5s, are on display at the new George Begg Bunker in the Motorcycle Mecca building in Invercargill’s Tay Street.
The Plan is the collective work of the Construction Sector Accord – a partnership between Government and industry. It focuses the work of the Accord into key priority areas and provides detail on how work will progress.
UC Senior Lecturer in Mechanical and Biomedical Engineering Dr Debbie Munro is leading the initiative. Earlier this year, UC launched an annual biomedical engineering work experience in the Pacific Islands where students can combine their engineering skills with hands-on training for repairing critically needed hospital equipment.
Representing “only the world’s leading and most reliable brands”, Punch Tooling NZ brings its considerable knowledge of manufacturing processes to ensure the implementation of the right plant and materials, fully installed and calibrated with ongoing technical service and support.
Ossis Development Engineer, Bethany Oates, says the company has developed porous, open mesh titanium implants through which bone and soft tissue can grow to keep the implant in place. The use of titanium was a breakthrough, she says, because the body accepts it easily.
Diesel generators play a vital role when power is not available in a particular area. If you are on a new construction site or live in a rural area, sometimes generators are the only thing that you can rely on to get power to your property or business. The importance of generators is sometimes underestimated […]
There is no denying that we are living in an age of advanced technology. The greatest innovations and exciting changes in technology have altered our lives forever. From the smart devices used in homes and self-driving cars to the satellite systems that help direct us in the right path as we move from one place […]
