Soft Landings: A Process for Professional Project Aftercare - Roderic Bunn, Doctoral Researcher at the Bartlett School of Environment, Energy and Resources (BSEER) in the UK, Building Performance Analyst, and Soft Landings Consultant.
Want to move from sustainable promises to performance outcomes? Join visiting UK expert Roderic Bunn as he sheds light on one of the hot topics in FM today – Soft Landings, a process whereby clients, construction professionals and building operators can focus more on outcomes, taking greater custody of performance after handover to ensure energy targets and improved occupant wellbeing are achieved.
An international expert in the field of Soft Landings, Roderic makes the case that in our effort to avoid climate change, buildings must play their part in reducing harmful emissions. Despite good intentions, evaluations of building performance are revealing that promises of sustainable performance are not being achieved, due to shortcomings in design, construction, commissioning and management. In this illuminating presentation, Roderic present evidence of buildings that under-perform, and explain how Soft Landings can put things right. Read more here.
Buildings for People – A Panel Discussion
Following on from Roderic Bunn’s presentation on Soft Landings, we bring together a panel of industry experts to discuss occupant satisfaction. How do buildings impact on the people who occupy them? How can this impact be measured? What role do FMs have to play in maintaining a healthy, comfortable and productive workplace? And what are some of the things not yet on the FM radar that deserve consideration? Facilitated by FMANZ Board Member, Peter Harris, panellists include Roderic Bunn, International Author, Researcher and Lecturer on Building Performance and Andrew Eagles, Chief Executive of the New Zealand Green Building Council (pictured). Further panellists TBC. Read more here.
Camps and Bases – the Regeneration Journey of the NZDF - Phil Gurnsey, General Manager Estate Strategy, Defence Estate and Infrastructure – New Zealand Defence Force.
The NZDF is embarking on a major programme of regeneration to provide an estate that meets the needs of a changing and dynamic Defence Force – ‘a Force for the Future’. Historically the estate has suffered from under investment, with a result that it is now inefficient in some areas, and expensive to maintain.
Phil Gurnsey, General Manager Estate Strategy, Defence Estate and Infrastructure, explains how the Defence Estate Regeneration Programme Plan provides the detailed direction for regeneration and whole-of-government integration of the estate, and the two-pronged approach the plan is taking - sequencing projects to provide a safe, modern and affordable estate that achieves the investment objectives, and promoting a business change process for managing the estate. “These dual expectations are integral if a fundamental change in the management of the estate is to be achieved,” he says.

Transformation in Action: A Construction Industry Revolution - Chelydra Percy, Chief Executive of BRANZ.
Developed over several months of consultation throughout 2017, the Industry Transformation Agenda is a call to action to New Zealand's building and construction industry. The Agenda imagines the sector moving from a current state of stasis, vulnerability and fragmentation to a future state of greater resilience, efficiency and productivity. It targets six priority areas for action in the New Zealand context and aims to create a better future for everyone the industry touches. Its genesis has been led by a core group of industry leaders, including BRANZ Chief Executive Chelydra Percy.
In this presentation, Chelydra shares the story of why these industry leaders are making this commitment to radical change and what such change will deliver. “The sector is at a crossroads, globally and nationally,” she explains. “In a time of extraordinary growth and unprecedented technological opportunities we cannot afford to stagnate. We must move beyond piecemeal, fragmented and incremental innovation. It is time for the industry to take a whole-of-industry approach and drive for nothing less than ensuring sector wide transformation.” Read more here.
