Should they wish to attend further ABC member meetings then they will be required to join the Association.

Wellington TrainUP

Time: 7.30am - 9.30am

Location: Angus Inn, Waterloo Street, Lower Hutt, Wellington (Get Directions)

Topic:  Lifts and Escalators from a Compliance Point of View


Speaker :  Lyall Senior is an independent consultant specialising in the vertical transport industry – commonly referring to himself as an intellectual prostitute (selling his mind and knowledge).  Lyall had 21 years experience with a multinational lift company before leaving to establish Lift Solutions Ltd (a specialist lift and escalator consultancy) in 2003, and then a separate company Infrastructure Analysis Ltd in 2006 which undertakes IQP inspections, energy use and performance analysis of lifts and escalators.  In a nutshell, most of the lift companies dislike the services provided by Lyall as he holds them to account, based upon contractual obligations and non compliance of equipment.

March Workshop Series

Time:

Location: (Get Directions)

We will be running two Workshops on each of these days :  Workshop 1 which runs from 9am to 12pm will be on Means of Escape / Final Exits and Workshop 2 which runs from 1pm to 4pm will be on Emergency Lighting.  You can register to attend either workshop or both, but note that if you wish to attend both and would like us to cater for lunch, there is an additional cost.  Details are on the registration brochure.

The Means of Escape/Final Exits workshop will include all aspects of means of escape from a building including open paths safe paths, exitways and final exits.

The Emergency Lighting Workshop will include Building Code Clause F6 visibility in escape routes, central supply and single point systems and illuminated exit signage.

The workshops will also cover the following:

  • Focus on inspection, maintenance and reporting including the certification and issue of a Form 12A.
  • Cover an overview of the legal requirements of the New Zealand Building Act and Building Code right through to the relevant performance standards.
  • Certification and ongoing compliance of the specified systems SS15/2 Final Exits and SS4 Emergency Lighting.
  • The purpose and requirements of these systems, how to approach the process of inspections.
  • A practical look at common defects, reporting and what and when to certify.

Each workshop is designed to be both theory and interactive and will include technical presentation, two separate building case studies, product examples and a technical quiz challenge and assessment.  

In order to maximise the benefit to attendees and allow the opportunity to ask questions and get practical answers, spaces at each workshop has been limited to 35 people per workshop.  We have allowed for two workshops in both Auckland and Christchurch but if numbers exceed 35 in other areas, we will collate those registrations and look at holding the workshop again on another date.  

Registrations are on a first in first served basis so don't delay - Register today to secure your seat.  CLICK HERE to download the Registration Brochure
