1 Asset Management Practise 1 Can an Asset Management system change asset culture? - The FAMIS story Presenter and Author: Vito Albicini Co-Author: Julia Osmolovskaya The Frankston Asset Management Information System (FAMIS) implementation project is a multi-year project that aims to deliver a unified solution for end to end process support for asset management. Once fully implemented, the system will support the recently adopted Asset Management Policy and Asset Management Strategy and soon to be adopted Road Management Plan. In June 2013 the Council introduced new business processes and work practices across the Asset Division. It highlighted a need to ensure that the system had the capacity to support compliant delivery of the maintenance and inspection service levels documented in the Road Management Plan, in order for Council to have a policy defence against public liability claims under the Road Management Act. In July 2014 the first phase of the project, that focused on supporting a risk based prioritisation of maintenance work in response to customer requests, was delivered to the organisation. The system includes a core system (IPS, formerly known as Hansen 8), a mobile computing component (Kern Mobile), and integration with the existing Customer Services and GIS systems. The system has brought many operational efficiencies, better risk management as well as improved customer response and better decision making. As the result of the implementation, information that had been previously unavailable is now recorded real time in the field. The system collects maintenance data against the affected asset and reports are now used to monitory compliance levels and guide workflow improvements. The system eliminated double entry of data and improved data collection and management. The Customer Services officers are now able to give customers an accurate account on the progress of their request as the information is updated real time. This presentation will discuss the journey undertaken in developing the system so that it provides operational benefits, the lessons learnt and the results achieved.

Knowing when to get them out - improving flood evacuation planning through flood modelling and stakeholder involvement Presenter and Author: Troy Anderson Co-authors: Kieran McAndrew, Michael Stubbs Floods are not new to Grafton, nor to the Clarence River. But the approach to planning and responding to floods has changed significantly in recent years. This paper discusses these changes, particularly how these changes have already and will continue to result in improved flood management and security for the City of Grafton. Specific reference will be made to the different approach taken in the 2013 flood compared to other recent flood events like in 2001 and In 2012 Council completed a levee overtopping assessment for Grafton. The objectives of the assessment were to identify the locations where the levee is likely to initially overtop, evaluate the flood risk within Grafton following overtopping, provide detailed emergency response information for levee overtopping events, and assess potential measures which may reduce the flood risks within Grafton. Troy is the Director (Works & Civil) at Clarence Valley Council. Whilst yet to experience flooding of the Clarence, Troy is involved in the floodplain management and planning for the valley. Troy played key roles in the flood clean-up and reconstruction of Ipswich following the 2011 & 2013 flooding events. On the 29th of January 2013, the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) forecast flood levels at the Prince St gauge in Grafton would reach 8.1m, the highest recording since installation of the river gauge. The recently completed flood modelling suggested that a flood of that level would result in minor overtopping of parts of the Grafton levee, and levels over this reach had the potential to inundate up to 1/3 of Grafton, being over 900 properties. This BOM prediction proved quite accurate, with the flood level in the Clarence River reaching 8.08m. But in a rare good news story coming out of the January 2013 floods, the planning foresight by Clarence Valley Council,

2 accurate flood prediction by the Bureau of Meteorology, accurate flood modelling, and careful flood evacuation planning by the SES all combined to avert this disaster from occurring. This event demonstrated the benefits of flood modelling and stakeholder involvement in flood planning and implementation. 3. Virtualising BIM to Asset Management Presenter and Author: Malcolm Archbold Co-Author: Brett Naylor Building Information Modelling (BIM) is fast becoming the normal method of delivery on building and infrastructure projects. Many public and private sector organisations are now expecting specific levels of BIM delivery on centrally procured projects in order to reduce cost and waste at both the capital and operation stages of an asset. The authors will present the technologies and processes for a successful BIM executed project outcome. This will start with reality capture to generate the most accurate picture of existing assets that will bring a greater certainty to project teams and reduced risk. They will explore some of the technologies and processes used to rapidly generate solutions and to take model data through the design and construction stages. They will also present new technologies that will help with virtualisation of existing assets and quick optioneering to generate the most effective concept solutions for buildings and infrastructure projects plus Field BIM applications that are used in the commissioning and information handover process. This results in the accurate asset information transfer to the asset owner, leading to more efficient asset operational lifecycle activities, reduced cost and waste and improved health and safety. Malcolm is a Technical Director for Beca's GIS and Survey businesses providing advice for projects and key clients. He is a Registered Professional Surveyor with specialist knowledge of the land information and infrastructure industry including measurement, data collection, analysis and presentation of information. He also participates in academic training as a guest lecturer for both NZ and South Pacific universities. 4. Barriers to establishing infrastructure Asset Management systems a comparison study between Libya and the United States Presenter and Author: Wesam Beitelmal Co-authors: Keith Molenaar, Amy Javernick-Will, Eugenio Pellicer This paper presents exploratory research about barriers to establishing asset management systems in developing countries. The increased needs for, and pressures on, infrastructure creates challenges for asset management (AM). Using an established AM framework from the United States (US) Federal Highway Administration, this research investigates the importance of barriers faced when establishing AM systems. It compares barriers from the US and Libya to contrast developed and developing countries. Practitioners who participate in decision-making processes in each country were sent an online questionnaire with twenty-eight potential barriers identified from a comprehensive literature review. Through an analysis of 61 completed questionnaires, 14 barriers were identified as important by both the US and Libyan practitioners. Eleven additional barriers, primarily in the areas of political and regulatory obstacles, were determined to be important for Libya. Based on the literature and data analysis, the authors believe that these 11 barriers provide reasonable insights into AM barriers for developing countries. The research concludes that developing countries, such as Libya, should focus on political and regulatory barriers in their implementation of asset management. I am currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Construction Engineering and Management under the Civil Engineering department. He graduated from Garyounis University in Benghazi, Libya with a BS in Civil Engineering, and he received his MS from Academy of Postgraduate Studies in Benghazi, Libya in Engineering Management. According to the difficulties that developing countries face in managing their infrastructure, Wesam investigates asset management systems establishment in developing countries through identifying the important barriers and the critical variables that will enhance the organizations' performance. From the social perspective, he likes to discover new places in the US with his family and their friends. Meanwhile, he likes to play sports such as soccer, basketball, and swimming. 5. Environmental management, Health and safety- National War Memorial Park and Tunnel Presenter and Author: Ed Breese Pukeahu National War Memorial Park is being constructed as the Government s major project to commemorate the First World War. To make the park happen, Buckle Street (State Highway 1) had to be put underground in a cut and cover tunnel. The project has a short timeframe and strict deadline. Following the Government s announcement of the project on 7 August 2012, the Memorial Park Alliance began planning and first broke ground on site on 3 October The

3 tunnel was opened on the night of Sunday 28 September 2014 and the park will be completed by 31 March 2015 (only 966 days after the announcement) to enable preparations for Anzac Day, 25 April The project is being delivered by the Memorial Park Alliance, comprising NZ Transport Agency, Downer, HEB, Tonkin and Taylor and URS. Key threads to be covered; Managing water run-off in a confined and busy site Treating contaminated water on site Managing health and safety through a fully engaged approach to staff and management responsibility Optimising induction to build a culture of safety and responsibility Ed Breese is Environmental and Compliance Manager at the Memorial Park Alliance. 6. It has merit! The development of a system dynamic tool for modelling the economic effects of infrastructure outages. Presenter and Author: Rob Buxton Co-authors: Garry McDonald, Nicola Smith, Erica Seville, Tony Fenwick, Michele Daly, Natalia Deligne, Levente Timar, Emily Grace, Simon Worthington A new integrated and dynamic economic modelling tool is being developed to assess the economic consequences of infrastructure failure due to damaging natural hazard events such as earthquakes and volcanic eruptions. The development of the tool, MERIT (Measuring the Economics of Resilient Infrastructure Tool), is currently half way through a 4 year government funded research program. The overall goal is for the tool to be used by central and local government, and infrastructure providers to increase resilience to infrastructure outages including through natural hazards. MERIT is an integrated spatial decision support system comprised of complementary modules, each handling a different part of the modelling process. A behavioural module handles the business response to infrastructure outages, a spatial module enables the city-wide impacts of the failure to be identified, and an economic module uses the principles of Computable General Equilibrium (CGE) to bring together supply and demand in key markets. In this paper we focus on the model, the unique features of the approach and its development process. As part of the development outage scenarios have been used for model calibration and these are briefly mentioned as they form the basis of another presentation. Biography of lead presenter: Rob has been with GNS Science for about 6 years and originally comes from the UK. He works in the hazards division mainly in computer modelling. His PhD is in Artificial Intelligence with a focus on pattern recognition. Rob has worked for GNS for about 6 years and he is originally from the UK.

Risk assessment in the cloud Presenter and Author: Sam Clive Co-Authors: Thomas Joseph, Steve Apeldoorn Auckland Council operates a risk based condition assessment strategy for their assets, which involves the collection, management and assessment of data and information on multiple asset classes. This includes a regional CCTV inspection program, providing up to 200km of proactive inspections annually. Information from these inspections improves the quality and completeness of asset data, and helps to determine risk levels, enabling these risks to be proactively managed within acceptable limits. Part of Auckland Councils Condition Strategy, is the efficient collection and analysis of data, which ensures that the greatest possible benefit is gained from each dollar spent and ensures that the condition assessment undertaken is fit for purpose. The challenge is to ensure that the large amount of data collected can be efficiently managed, accessed and utilised, in a timely manner, by everyone that needs to access it. Over the past 12 months, Auckland Council have implemented a cloud based data management platform that, at its core, provides a real time solution for the planning, capture, collation, interrogation, analysis and dissemination of water related information. This tailored web platform is a first for NZ, enabling a seamless interaction with external service providers and Auckland Council staff and ensures a common working set of data. This provides time savings and improves transparency, ensuring planned work is undertaken efficiently, enabling efficient renewal planning. This paper describes the benefits to Auckland Council of this type of platform and sets out how this unique engineering solution has been implemented

Single infrastructure failures: capturing outage information for merit: modelling the economics of resilient infrastructure tool Author: Michele Daly Co-authors: R. Buxton, M. Daly, K. Wright, L. Timar, G. McDonald, N. Smith, D. Mieler, T. Fenwick The Economics of Resilient Infrastructure (ERI) research programme is a four year project funded by the New Zealand Government. The aims of the programme are to study and quantify the impacts of infrastructure outages including through natural hazards and to model the economic consequences of these impacts. To this end a new software tool called MERIT (Modelling the Economics of Resilient Infrastructure Tool) is being developed. MERIT will be able to be used to support investment decisions for asset owners. To help test and develop the model, single outage scenarios have been developed involving a single piece of critical infrastructure which if fails may have significant impacts for the community. The study area chosen was Auckland and the infrastructure sectors selected were electricity and water supply. Scenarios were chosen such that the service level outage could be mapped spatially and temporally (i.e. were of extended duration). Spatial service outage data relating to the scenarios was collected through the use of workshops, meetings and network modelling. This paper outlines the outage scenarios and describes the process used to generate the data in a form suitable as an input to MERIT. An assessment of the suitability of the approaches in the context of MERIT is given as well as some preliminary economic results. Michele leads the Risk and Society Department at GNS Science, a NZ Crown Research Institute. She has a background in local government, natural hazards management and disaster risk management. She leads the NZ Government funded Economics of Resilient Infrastructure research programme. 9. Back up and running as soon as possible Presenter and Author: Alexander Edmonds Co-Author: Richard Sharpe The many significant aftershocks following the 2010/201 Christchurch earthquakes have highlighted the advantages of rapid structural inspections to allay the natural fears of building operators, occupiers, owners and visitors so that business interruption is minimised. Previously, our clients used a scatter-gun approach to request inspections, and it became clear that a much more efficient system could be put in place. One which would ensure an inspection would be automatically scheduled as soon as possible after a particular event if certain criteria were met. The proximity of the earthquake and its Magnitude are obviously the starting point for this, but it is as important to consider the known seismic resilience of the structure, any existing damage, and its structural form. This paper describes an exciting bringing together of our knowledge of seismic hazard, spatial databases of client s building portfolios, and many seismic assessments to provide a 24/7 service, triggered automatically by a public feed taken from New Zealand s earthquake monitoring system GeoNet. The system automatically alerts both us and the client that there are structures (on the basis of agreed criteria) which should be inspected as soon as possible, and includes location maps noting priorities. Building-specific information can be downloaded from a central database to the responding engineer s digital device, and reviewed and updated while inspecting the building. The client can interrogate the system to monitor progress and see the assessment as soon as it has been completed. A structural engineer with over 9 years experience in the design and assessment of commercial buildings. For the last three years Alex has been involved in the assessment and risk review of a number of large building portfolios. 10. Track a crack: a Western Australian experience on migrating from a manual crack assessment to an automated measurement of road surface condition. Presenter and Author: Francois Finette Mainroads Western Australia (MRWA) currently assesses the extent, severity and type of surface cracking by visual inspection. This manual process is typically undertaken by an observer in a slow moving vehicle. This method is generally extremely time, resource intensive not to mention flawed with safety and reliability concerns. There has been significant advancement in the development of automated crack detection for pavement condition over the past five to six years. For one such development, is the emergence of Laser Crack Measurement System (LCMS) developed by Pavemetrics and National Optics Institute (INO). This technology is proven and has been adopted through the northern Hemisphere and particularly in the Americas.

5 A trial of the technology was undertaken in WA using an ARAN equipped with Pave3D subsystem (a development of the LCMS). The objective of this project was to undertake a trial of the LCMS technology by surveying a representative sample of the Network in order to compare the accuracy and repeatability of the LCMS to the current method and subsequently to compare the data gained from the Texture, Roughness and Rutting system acquired concurrently. It is anticipated that the delivered data would be more reliable, repeatable, consistent than possible from windshield surveys. Furthermore as the vehicle travels at speed it provides improved safety of staff and equipment with reduction of survey time, improved efficiency as the system is not dependent on ambient light. This paper provides the findings of the trials and discusses the challenges experienced in a Western Australian setting. Francois holds the position of Branch Manager/Senior Engineer for WA/SA with Pavement Management Services (PMS). He holds a Masters in Technology (Pavements) and a Bachelor of Engineering (Civil) from Monash University. Over the past 15 years, he has worked for Geotechnical, Research, Construction and Consulting companies. He has demonstrated theoretical and practical knowledge within the Construction Industry to deliver multi-million dollar projects. He has proven leadership skills and an ability to liaise and negotiate with all stake holders with a strong emphasis on OH&S issues, delegation, implementation and monitoring expertise to achieve a successful outcome. He is responsible for the delivery of large scale network level services with Western Australia and servicing both local and state governments. He has overseen the introduction and implementation of new technologies at PMS for the betterment of the industry. Francois main goal is to provider better pavement solutions for our clients. 11. Strengthening decision making and asset management with good cost data Presenter and Author: Colin Gerrard Robust, reliable asset valuations should play a significant role in the management and administration of asset owning organisations. Increasing numbers of organisations are recognising this and the consequent need for good cost data to improve the quality and reliability of their asset valuations. They also recognise the need for sound and reliable cost information to support other important management aspects such as optimised decision making and preparation of business cases. To meet these needs a growing number of asset owners are recognising the benefits of investing in the development of unit rates databases that consistently and reliably capture costs from their new asset, asset improvement and asset renewal programmes (capital investments). This paper presents: The issues that arise from use of poor cost data and the consequences for organisations Key lessons learnt from AECOM s work developing unit rates databases with a number of Value provided to organisations by good unit rates databases Demonstrations of benefits and improvements through the use of reliable cost data, including examples demonstrating how good cost data has improved institutional decision making. Colin Gerrard is a Principal Consultant within AECOM's Strategic Asset Management team in Wellington, NZ. He has over 16 years professional experience in the NZ & UK including Operational and Asset Management roles working for both water utility and consultancy companies. Colin works with public and private sector organisations in New Zealand and internationally. He has experience in asset management including strategic asset management planning and development of asset management frameworks, asset valuations, risk frameworks and reviews, condition and performance assessment, asset renewal planning, analysis and reporting for development of asset management plans 12. Spatially enabling Bankstown Presenter and Author: Nicola Grant One of the hardest things about asset management is knowing what information to capture. A Council can only make sustainable asset lifecycle choices if it has the right information. Over the last 5yrs Bankstown has been spatially collecting information about its infrastructure assets using Trimble data loggers and other mobile devices. As a result, we have spatially collected over 130,000 assets with a replacement value of over 2 billion dollars. To make this information available to Council s asset managers, planners and maintainers we have undertaken the Spatially Enabling Bankstown Project.

6 Through the Spatially Enabling Bankstown Project we have successfully utilised the MapInfo spatial environment and our MyData Asset Register to create a central repository and common user interface for all staff. As a result, our wealth of asset information is now used daily to inform decision making and create value though applying and sharing knowledge. We plan to make this information available through the public viewer (the web) soon. This paper aims to walk the reader through the steps undertaken to spatially enable Bankstown. It details what we did; the preparation of spatial data sets and asset register; how we got the computer systems to talk; and the lessons learned. Nicola Grant has a Bachelor of Science, Major in Archaeology and a Masters in Infrastructure Engineering and Management. She has worked in QLD and NSW local Government organisations, specialising in Asset Management for the past 6 years. She has a strong background in infrastructure asset management and systems development. As Team Leader Asset Systems, Nicola is responsible for the development and ongoing management of Council asset management systems and oversight of the SAM Program. 13. Maintenance of public buildings Presenter and Author: Jonas Havord Norwegian Association of Municipal Engineers has developed a software application (www.ikbygg.no) to uncover the state of public buildings from a health, safety and environmental perspective to meet regulatory demands and legal obligations. Since the launch of the application in 2011 almost 100 out of totally 428 Norwegian municipalities uses it. The success has led to better ownership, maintenance and use of public buildings (e.g. schools, kindergartens, town halls etc.). The application is supported and promoted by: - Norwegian Directorate for Building Quality: Central authority for building regulations. - Norwegian Directorate for Civil Protection: Central authority for maintaining full overview of risk and vulnerability in society in general. - Norwegian Fire Protection Association: Independent, non-profit foundation that works to achieve no loss of life, health and values caused by fire. - Norwegian Labour Inspection: Government supervisory agency that provides information and guidelines on rights and obligations of employers and employees. - Norwegian Directorate of Health: Executive agency and competent authority subordinate to the Norwegian Ministry of Health and Care Services. - KLP: Leading Norwegian non-life insurance company offering insurance solutions to municipalities and companies/institutions. Working for Norwegian Association of Municipal Engineers as project manager 14 Optimising the gravel utilisation for unsealed roads: A case study Presenter and Author: Theuns Henning Co-authors: Seosamh Costello, William Rodenburg, Viviene Jone, Julie Muir Despite over 38% of New Zealand s local roads being unsealed, asset management of this portion of the network is typically poor. The high variability and complex nature of pavement failure makes it difficult to ensure condition data is up-to-date. A literature review shows that for an asset management system to be effective it must use readily available software, and not require significant technical data inputs nor add considerably to staff workload. The alternative methodology presented in this paper relies on only the fundamental geological properties of the aggregate and historical maintenance records, with no reliance on condition data for the decision making process. The study found that the influence of horizontal geometry, average daily traffic and age of the pavement on the rate of failure differed depending on the geological properties. Knowledge of these three factors allows the user to undertake a trade-off analysis, projecting the life cycle maintenance costs associated with the use of alternate aggregates. This framework has been tested on the Unsealed Roads of Central Otago District Council. It showed that significant savings can be made through more effective material selection and maintenance planning, ultimately leading to better sustainable outcomes for the region. Dr Theuns Henning is the Director of the Transport Research Centre and senior lecturer at the University of Auckland, specialising in the areas of Infrastructure Asset Management. Theuns received his ME (Transportation) from the

7 University of Pretoria, South Africa his PhD at the University of Auckland as the holder of the Foundation for Research Science and Technology Bright Future Scholarship. His research includes condition deterioration modelling, asset management systems and optimisation of infrastructure renewal and replacement programmes including road pavements, water pipes and bridges. 15. Asset management: Status of practice in the U.S. Presenter and Author: Heather HImmelberger Asset Management practice in the U.S. is at a cross roads. Some states are beginning to mandate asset management outright or as a condition of funding while others are seriously contemplating this action. The federal government is mandating AM as a condition of the Clean Water Act revolving fund. In many ways, this is a welcome development. The problems arise when the government mandates are written by people who don t understand asset management and what it is about. Additional problems occur when engineering firms or other consultants/assistance providers attempt to help water and wastewater systems with their asset management planning activities with little understanding of what it is all about. This paper will discuss the current state of asset management practice in the US including: status of mandates at the state and federal level, the results of a survey on asset management practice that is being done by the American Water Works Association of utilities across the country (the author is on this committee and developed the survey), successes with asset management at the federal, state, and local (i.e., water and wastewater system) levels, and continuing challenges faced in trying to implement asset management widely across the U.S. Heather Himmelberger is a registered professional engineer with 27 years of experience. She has a BS in Environmental Engineering from Penn State University, an MS in Environmental Engineering from Johns Hopkins University and is pursuing a PhD in Civil Engineering at the University of New Mexico. She has been the Director of the Southwest Environmental Finance Center (formerly the New Mexico EFC) since Heather has been providing asset management training and assistance for the past 10 years and has delivered over 100 trainings of this type throughout the U.S.. She has assisted utilities with the implementation of asset management 16. Resilience of road transportation lifelines for Porirua district Presenter and Author: Dougal Mason Co-Author: Brabhaharan Pathmanathan Road networks provide a vital lifelines function to society, and their availability is critical for emergency response and recovery after major hazard events. The resilience of the primary road network in the Porirua district to a large magnitude earthquake has been assessed and mapped onto a GIS platform. Slip volumes that could be potentially generated were also assessed, to help response planning. The study highlighted the vulnerability of the network, where the road network could be cut off by major landslides on road through rugged terrain, as well as liquefaction and lateral spreading at low lying areas. The assessment enables the Council to manage the risks to the road network so that the levels of service expected by the community can be met, and the Council s social and statutory responsibilities are met. Together with the needs from future growth in population, industry and traffic and safety improvement needs, the assessment will enable the Council to effectively manage future capital and asset maintenance expenditure for the road network. The study also enables asset managers and emergency management staff to consider the whole inter-connected network, and underpins local and regional emergency response planning, as well as initiatives to enhance resilience. Doug is an Engineering Geologist at Opus in Wellington, and leads a team specialising in natural hazards and resilience. He completed bachelor degrees in geology and history and an MSc (Hons) in geology at Victoria University, and worked for GNS prior to joining Opus in Since then he has worked in NZ and the UK on a variety of geotechnical and geoenvironmental projects including infrastructure seismic resilience, natural hazard risk studies and development of risk management strategies. 17. Application f the NAMAF (National Asset Management Assessment Framework) to improve Asset Management in Dubbo, NSW Presenter and Author: Stewart McLeod Co-Author: Mark Loaney Dubbo City Council s implementation of the NAMAF is described with 83% compliance achieved and improvements continuing. Dubbo City Council, a major regional City in central NSW with a population of 41,000 people, has long been focused on responsibly managing its asset base. In 2009/10 it sought to improve the management of infrastructure by engaging Review Today to undertake a financial sustainability review of the whole Council. This review included an assessment of the state of Council Infrastructure together with estimated costs to address funding gaps.

8 An important outcome was the creation of a Superior Asset Management project to undertake a full review of Council s asset management practices and process to ensure accurate and up to date information is available. The consultancy Core Business facilitated a self-assessment (July 2012) using the 11 elements of the National Asset Management and Financial Planning Assessment Framework (NAMAF). This assessment indicated that Council had 43% compliance with significant opportunities for improvement. The NAMAF allowed Council to develop a detailed improvement plan that resulted in Council achieving 83% compliance in October This paper details the activities and improvements achieved over the past two years by creating and updating responsibilities, processes, data management, asset condition and renewal modelling. Details on the infrastructure backlog and funding gaps across all the major asset groups have been quantified and used to develop the Council s latest Asset Management Strategy. Stewart McLeod has worked in public works engineering since 1974, initially with the NSW Department of Public Works and then in Local Government from Stewart has held Director Technical Services positions at both Orange and Dubbo City Councils over the last 21 years, and received a Public Service Medal in the 2011 round of Australian Honours for services to public works engineering in regional NSW. He was an early adopter of asset management principles and practices in NSW Local Government and as early as 1999 presented a paper on asset management at Dubbo City Council to the APWA Conference in Denver, Colorado. Mark Loaney has over 25 years experience in Local Government, commencing at Dubbo City Council then continuing at Brisbane, Mudgee and Orange City Councils until Mark held senior management positions for nearly 20 years at each Council.

New tools for computing maintenance backlog Presenter and Author: Janne Rantanen Rapal and approximately 20 municipalities have taken part in a mutual project to develop maintenance backlog computation for streets and green areas. The goal of the project was to define a mutual computation model and terminology for maintenance backlog determination. Second goal was to utilize the developed theories in practice. The theoretical models developed during the project enable the cost-efficient calculation of maintenance backlog. Maintenance backlog was defined as a function of time based on the technical current value of the property and its starting value. The final maintenance backlog was defined by comparing the technical current value of each point in time with the property s optimal technical maintenance level. Computational models were produced for three different street types and different green areas. Excel was chosen as the computational tool for its cost-effectiveness. Computational models were based on information gathered in hundreds of measurements conducted in Finland. Developed models correlated with measurements at 90 percent accuracy. Maintenance backlog calculator has been tested around Finland with good results. The calculator can be used to quickly define the estimated maintenance backlog, which allows the better planning and timing of street and hydrological network maintenance, resulting in 50 percent savings in maintenance costs.

Rotorua city, life in a geothermal system Presenter and Author: Brad Scott Rotorua city has been commercially developed over an active geothermal system. This has produced a unique mix of New Zealand culture utilizing the geothermal nature of the area. The residents, developers and managers of the commercial activities act as custodians of the intrinsic values inherent in the geothermal system. The area has one of the most diverse collections of geothermal surface features in New Zealand, especially large chloride fed pools and springs. The Whakarewarewa-Te Puia area hosts New Zealand s sole remaining large and frequently active geysers. The values of these are recognised and appreciated in a management plan that is in place to preserve the surface geothermal features. This presentation provides an overview of the geology and topography of the Rotorua area, the geothermal resource of the Rotorua Geothermal Field and the surface geothermal features of this area. It discusses the geothermal hazard issues, the impact of human activities, land use, mitigation and response criteria. Data from the monitoring programmes provided by the Bay of Plenty Regional Council and other research are also presented to create a more complete overview. In summary the key strategic assets are the geothermal nature of the area with warm ground, hot springs, mud pots, hot pools and geysers, the broad diversity of these and the associated botanical and ecological values, all mixed in with the ethnic New Zealand culture, both commercially and domestically. This is all within a major city. Brad Scott is a volcanologist with 40 years' experience in monitoring and assessing active volcanoes, geothermal systems and earthquake activity. He started work with the NZ Geological Survey DSIR in Rotorua, then worked for DSIR Geology and Geophysics, and has been with the Institute of Geological & Nuclear Sciences (GNS) since He has been involved in a wide range of geological and geophysical investigations related to active volcanoes, geothermal systems and earthquakes, mostly involving monitoring, hazard assessment and rapid event response. Since 1992 he has taken the lead role in coordination of volcano surveillance in New Zealand. His current position with GNS is as a specialist in volcano surveillance, hazard and risk assessment and communications. 21. Application of advanced remote sensing and GIS technology to LGA green Asset Management Presenter and Author: Nasrin Sultana Co-Author: Simon Harris Light detection and ranging (LiDAR) data is increasingly being used for monitoring changes to environmental systems and impacts from climate change. Bass Coast Shire Council s GIS team recently developed a ground breaking tree data collection program within their major townships. The program used both LiDAR data and mobile GIS software to quickly and efficiently collect base tree data from the desktop which was then complimented with in-field arboreal analysis. Council s GIS team identified individual trees canopy height and density using analysis of aerial imagery and 3D LiDAR point clouds. The team developed robust processing and analysis techniques to facilitate the use of small-footprint LiDAR data for estimating plot-level tree height by measuring individual trees identifiable on the three-dimensional LiDAR surface. LiDAR processing techniques included data fusion with multispectral optical data and local filtering with both square and circular windows of variable size. The in-field solution was then developed to allow the arborist to collect specific details about each tree s health and structure. The team chose to deploy ESRI s ArcPad mobile solution to identify the location of a tree and then use a form to capture relevant structural information that will be used to calculate tree value. The tree valuation is based on the Revised Burnley Method of Tree Valuation. The LiDAR and ArcPad mobile tree data capture project has provided Council with the necessary data in a cost-efficient way to identify tree stock, support more effective decisionmaking managing arborist resources, quantifying and valuing its precious stored carbon resources.

Future proofing Auckland Transports wharf and ferry facilities assets Presenter and Author: John Tetteroo Co-Author: Arnaud Deutsch Auckland Transport currently owns and manages 23 Wharf and Ferry Facility structures within the Auckland Isthmus, having a current estimated total value of $93 million. A network cost estimate of $114 million is projected for capital, renewals and operational and maintenance works up until the year Auckland Transport and GHD have taken a proactive approach to developing a robust condition inspection regime, detailed forward works programme and 20 year lifecycle analysis for both timber and concrete wharf structures and associated buildings. This includes analysis of the deteriorating mechanisms and remaining life assessments of marine structures. From the wharf and building assessments it has been established that for many of the structures durability of design, future serviceability and functionality have not been considered. Examples of this are incorrect grades of timber, inappropriate bolt types, insufficient parking and the need to improve facilities usage. To work towards excellence in asset management, Auckland Transport is using its learnings to future proof these facilities including durable designs, minimising deterioration and maintenance costs, seismic assessments at priority wharfs, seismic screening of all remaining wharf structures, bolt studies, undertaking impact assessments for increased vessel size and a region wide wharf strategic study. John is a Principal Engineer in Infrastructure Asset Management with GHD Limited. He has 30 years experience in civil, construction and local government engineering. John has extensive experience in capital works projects including design, stormwater quality, project management, and team leadership. He has been involved in a number of large infrastructure projects in stormwater and Asset Management over the past 16 years in Auckland and Councils throughout New Zealand.Johns focus is on the asset management of Wharfs and Ferry facilities and Structures contracts for Auckland Transport which includes condition assessments, forward works planning, innovation, design and technical support. 23.

Adapting to a mobile-first world and improving workforce productivity Presenter and Author: tba

11 There is a large trend in organisations with geographically disperse assets to make their field teams more productive and improve customer service by going mobile. In the past, field crews were generally required to fill out their paperwork and bring it back to the office for processing. Now, many organisations are removing this time-consuming barrier and using new technology to facilitate change and maximise the productivity of their growing mobile workforce. With this new technology, field workers can now receive, complete and update work while they are on the road via mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. Join this presentation to hear how innovative organisations are using new mobile work management solutions to drive improvements in asset data quality and the productivity of field work crews, and reduce administrative costs. Please note: Client presenters to be confirmed. Actual client case studies and results will be presented and more detail can be provided in due course.
