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 […]
