Auckland Infrastructure and Intensification: Myths and Facts

Come along to hear from our Power Panel at the B:HIVE, a new build at Smales Farm, as they will be discussing the effects of intensification on Auckland’s infrastructure including;

  • Development challenges
  • Water, wastewater and transport challenges
  • Environmental and sustainability

This panel of infrastructure leaders will delve into some of the myths and facts associated with this complex topic. You will hear from each speaker on their area of expertise, followed by a panel discussion and an opportunity to ask questions.

Men and women welcome. Property Council New Zealand is committed to an industry which leverages diversity to drive success. Please consider this when registering participants for this event.
