WELCOME

SUPPORTERS

Welcome all to our very first Canterbury buildnz | designex 2014. In 2013 the XPO team were invited to Sydney to the “Exhibitions and Events Association of Australasia Awards for Excellence” where our 2013 Auckland buildnz | designex show was awarded Best Trade Show in Australasia <10,000sqm and Best Overall (Consumer or Trade) Show in New Zealand. A fantastic result for our NZ owned event given the heated competition we faced from many of the world’s largest multinational event organisers. On the back of that win, we surveyed our 20 year strong loyal exhibitors and trade visitors and found we had support from over 70% of respondents to bring the event to Christchurch. That’s a powerful indicator of confidence in our trade show format from the industry, and we now hope that it translates a valuable experience for all. From an exhibitor standpoint we’re 100% full and now facing a waiting list of suppliers eager to showcase at this event. As a visitor to our very first Canterbury buildnz | designex show you will have seen and heard our extensive media campaign across The Press newsprint, major radio stations, city billboards, billposters, leading trade magazines, extensive email, direct mail, SMS texting, online and social media programs. No doubt you’ve also heard about the show through your industry association bodies such as; the Certified Builders of New Zealand, The Registered Master Builders Association, BRANZ, Lifemark, The New Zealand Institute of Architects Incorporated, the Architectural Designers Association of New Zealand and many others, (We extend our thanks as always for their support). It’s been very important that we grab the industry’s attention so as to cement the future of this event. We’d go as far to say we’ve broken industry records in terms of the level of investment to bring this new trade show to you in Christchurch. So what is the very first Canterbury buildnz | designex expecting to deliver for the industry? To educate and inspire the build, construction, design and architecture industries. A wider industry challenged with a once in a lifetime opportunity to plan and deliver on our ‘New World’ city. It’s also a chance to research the leading products and services to assist the industry to deliver on that promise. If you’re a builder, tradesperson, designer, architect, specifier, planner, developer or related industry professional then do take your time to research, learn and network with the people and suppliers that can make it all happen. As our campaign says “Down Tools” and enjoy the show. Best regards The Canterbury buildnz | designex team (Proudly New Zealand owned & orgainised)

It is timely that buildnz | designex is being held in the Canterbury Region as it reflects the importance of the scope and scale of the Christchurch Rebuild and their place in the history of New Zealand. Future generations of New Zealanders will reflect back in awe at the work and experiences that are taking place currently as many, many stakeholders across all disciplines in the building and construction industry are showing immense dedication and commitment toward the rebuild of this fine city. As the rebuild progresses we have witnessed a trend for many process changes and innovations that have or are being trialled across all levels of the sector. This of course across the broad spectrum of the industry – be it design, building product, health and safety, assembly or compliance. Many of these are being introduced out of necessity to assist in managing the scale and progressing the rebuild and many are being trialled or introduced due to the individual, organisational or agency desire to trial something new in this environment. There is a risk of course that those have been introduced due to the latter reason will only result in creating additional work, expense or time and not provide true value to the industry Time will tell which of these have been effective and have delivered real value to the industry. No doubt the true test

will be how (or if) these innovations and process changes, or learning’s from these, are adopted across the rest of New Zealand. I am sure many attendees at Canterbury buildnz | designex event will be interested to have the opportunity to view some of these innovations on display and gain more information. For some time now there has been comment of the future skill shortage that the industry will face in Christchurch as activity continues to build. Unfortunately it is appearing that this shortage will be intensified by the lift in building activity across the rest of New Zealand. I am sure that many Building Practitioners have transferred or relocated to the Christchurch area prompted by the drop off in the building activity across other parts of the country. As building consent and alterations/additions activity lifts across the various parts of New Zealand there will be a natural flow of Building Practitioners returning to their families and home bases. This trend will have the impact of further reducing the level of skill and qualified trades people available to work in the Rebuild. Unfortunately this is a situation that is very hard to control – but one I am sure with the resilience and commitment the industry has shown in Christchurch to date – can be overcome.

INNOVATION IN TIMBER A number of projects currently under construction in Canterbury are leading the way forward in timber construction.

There is no doubt that the seismic capacity and resilience of our building stock has been thrown into the spotlight following the Canterbury earthquakes. Along with it, an increased public awareness of building safety has developed. This has contributed to an altogether shifted perception of our existing building stock, and changed expectations for new builds. In the context of this dramatically changed landscape, the New Zealand engineering and construction industries have taken pioneering steps forward in the development of new technologies and methodologies.These steps are visible on many projects, but some stand out from the crowd as they near completion. In Kaikoura recently I was lucky enough to visit the site of the new Kaikoura District Council building. Built at the bottom of a limestone cliff on Kaikoura’s main drag, it is set to be a local icon in itself – a craypot structure will adorn part of its façade, a nod to the unique natural beauty and seaward traditions of the area. However, while it may be an eye-catching building from the exterior, it is the bones of this structure, which is built entirely in timber, that provide the real point of interest. The three-story building is the first in the world to utilise shear walls of cross-laminated timber (CLT) and laminated veneer lumber (LVL), and it also incorporates PRESSS technology. It uses all the engineered timber products in its construction – CLT, LVL and Glu-lam – and its design is based on the latest research from the University of Canterbury. Complete with a Potius flooring system (a stressed skin panel system fabricated using LVL, which acts as a diaphragm between the shear walls), this building is not only seismically strong, it has provided a cost-effective, sustainable solution for the council, using locally-sourced material and local labour. Contract Project Manager, Stuart Chadwick said the decision to use timber was not entirely related to its seismic and structural strength though; it was also central to the need to create a sustainable building. “The hole I leave in the earth constructing this sort of building out of pine trees is nothing compared to the huge hole I would leave if I built this in concrete and steel.” And it’s not the only building currently going up around New Zealand that is taking huge steps forward utilising both seismic and engineered timber technology. In central Christchurch, Wynn Williams House is another pioneering structure. On the site of the former heritage- listed St Elmo Courts building, which was severely damaged in the earthquakes, this building utilises a world-first combination of seismic technology to create a structure that will withstand a one-in-2500-year earthquake. Although each of the structural elements in this building has been used before, it is the specific combination used here that make this building worth talking about.

“Using this technology allows the architect to create almost any imaginable building form efficiently, accurately, cost effectively and sustainably..." “Using this technology allows the architect to create almost any imaginable building form efficiently, accurately, cost effectively and sustainably. These technologies are rapidly changing the architectural and building industry and we are excited to be a part of this movement,” Sutherland said. These Canterbury projects are pioneering the way forward in a rapidly changing construction landscape. I, for one, am proud New Zealand, and particularly Canterbury, can claim such an integral part in this development, and the construction of these novel structures, which will provide the framework for future innovation in the sector. Clare Chapman, editor Progressive Building magazine

Ruamoko Solutions engineer Grant Wilkinson said the structural design was truly unique. “It has been professionally satisfying to design a building that has several levels of innovation and is so different to other more orthodox structures,” he said. What Wilkinson is referring to is the use of lead and rubber base isolators, tension tie downs in each corner of the building (to stop it lifting off the base isolators), and the use of a post-tensioned frame structure of precast concrete columns and structural LVL beams measuring up to 8.7 metres in length. The untreated timber beams are post-tensioned horizontally on each of the grid lines; a process that provoked various challenges including working around elastic shortening of the timber beams when a post-tensioned load was applied. And the beams were not simple to manufacture either – there were up to 44 separate LVL pieces in some beams, and up to 1300 steps to make the components for a single beam. In the residential sector, the story is similar. Technology is developing at pace, and the results are beginning to become evident. Tucked away in Governors Bay, an unassuming little house dubbed ‘Warrander Studio’ is making history. It is the

country’s first full CLT house, and was entirely digitally designed and fabricated using BIM and computer numerical control (CNC) technology. This residence was designed by Canterbury-based firm Makers of Architecture as a transitional dwelling for a family displaced following the earthquakes. Co-director Ben Sutherland developed a prefabricated cassette panel cladding system to work with the CLT panel structure, enabling construction of the house to be undertaken surprisingly quickly - assembly of the CLT panels took just over two days, and the prefabricated cassettes could then be quickly lifted into place, making the structure weather tight in a matter of days. The cassette system was parametrically calculated and CNC machined to create bed-frame like structures, which accommodate the insulation, building paper, cavity battens and sheet cladding. When assembled, each cassette is lifted onto the exterior CLT surface into a set of corresponding routed notches. All services sit against the exterior CLT panels, and are housed within the cassette panels, which means the cassettes can be lifted off to access services if necessary.
