In the recent Steel Research Panel’s annual workshop, HERA agreed to launch quarterly workshops focused on the 5-to-10 year strategy for New Zealand steel research.

Based on the themes of fire, seismic, robustness/reliability and productivity – the first one-day workshop is now confirmed to be held at HERA House on 14th November on the theme of FIRE.

Industry stakeholders with an interest in the theme are most welcome to attend and contribute. A skype link can also be provided should you be unable to attend in person.


This is a once-in-a-decade opportunity!

Help shape the roadmap for New Zealand’s long-term steel research.  Please contact our Senior Structural Engineer Jing Cao if you have any questions.
