An efficiency gain of around 20% is available to the NZ transport industry by extending gross vehicle mass from 44 to 50 tonnes. We wrote a Better Business Case (BBC) format report for the NZ Transport Agency assessing likely industry uptake of a road access regime to achieve these gains. We have also conducted, over the period 2011 to 2016, three separate reviews of the implementation of the wider High Productivity Motor Vehicle (HPMV) programme for longer and heavier trucks on New Zealand roads.
We have worked within Ministry of Business Innovation and Employment and previously the Department of Building and Housing on options and business cases for streamlining the building consents process, and identified options for how this could be delivered.
Changes to the Building Act presented challenges to local authorities to establish processes and gain Building Consent Authority accreditation. We have worked with sixteen Councils on their business processes for achieving accreditation.
We have worked with many organisations to insure they develop robust and sustainable business practices. For example we assisted Wellington City Council to review the structural options for the establishment of an energy efficiency trust in Wellington. We have developed asset management manuals, tenancy and maintenance manuals for many organisations such as Ngati Porou Hauora, Ngati Kahungunu, Tauranga Community Housing Trust, Whatever it Takes Charitable Trust.
