Building for the Future a Global Dilemma

The New Zealand Institute of Quantity Surveyors (NZIQS) has won the rights to host the 2016 Pacific (Asia) Association of Quantity Surveyors (PAQS) Congress.

PAQS comprises professional quantity surveying members from China, Japan, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, Australia, Canada, South Africa, Brunei, Sri Lanka, Fiji and of course, New Zealand.

The 2016 Congress is to be held in Christchurch on May 20-24th 2016, currently we are expecting to host 300-400 delegates.

After a sequence of large earthquakes during 2010 and 2011 which had devastating effects on both the community and the city itself, Christchurch is re-emerging as a vibrant and ever-changing city. The earthquakes have provided an unprecedented opportunity to rethink, revitalise and renew the city of Christchurch. With the city in the midst of being reimagined, it makes it a particularly relevant and timely host destination for PAQS 2016.

The theme for the Congress is “Building for the Future – A Global Dilemma.” We hope to explore the new and innovative building construction structures and techniques that are being used not only in Christchurch but world-wide as the increase in devastating world weather events causes the construction community (architects, engineers, quantity surveyors, environmentalist) to rethink the way buildings are constructed and the need to reduce the cost escalations and construction time frames.

We look forward to seeing you in Christchurch in 2016!

Phillippa Goodman-Jones

PAQS Convenor 2016
