Protecting NZ Infrastructure – NZSSDA seminar
May 9, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 4:30 pm
What’s it about?
Today, many constructors are put under pressure to deliver. They’re constantly dealing with a demand to construct large projects to tight deadlines and budgets – while still juggling a need to be socially responsible in the process. At the same time, key stakeholders and investors are pushing for increased return on investment margins adding greater restrictions for project managers to operate within.
It’s not surprising that the result of these conflicts of interest can have negative impacts on the outcome of construction projects. Corners are cut, delays occur, costly rework rears it’s head, and sustainability of structures? It simply becomes an after thought.
In this case, the question has to be asked – do we continue to build cheaper? Or, make a conscious effort to focus on better and smarter?
Who should attend?
This not-to-be-missed technical seminar will provide guidelines and information for design engineers, fabricators, specifiers and end-users, regarding best stainless steel industry practices in the construction industries. Grade selection, alloy properties, design, welding, post-fabrication cleaning and installation will be discussed. Specific applications of stainless steels in the construction of infrastructure will also be addressed by the speakers.

Roydon Gilmour | Anzor Fastener Ltd Architectural Representative
As an Engineer I was involved in developing connection and lifting systems for the concrete and mining industries, and for the last three years I’ve specialised in stainless steel at Anzor Fasteners.
Russel Thorburn | Steel & Tube Stainless Group Product Manager
I’ve worked for seven years as a NZ Customs Officer before joining the British Steel Corporation in 1986 in stainless steel sales. British Steel later rebranded as Corus Metals, then Tata Steel, which was eventually acquired by Steel & Tube in 2014.
After progressing to Auckland Branch Manager I moved into a Business Development role which covered sales, marketing, technical support, and developing new business, product and project opportunities, and I’m now responsible for stainless steel activities across the wider Steel & Tube group (excluding fastenings). I’ve been a member of the NZSSDA Executive Committee since 2003 (including a two year term as Chairman), and at present I’m one of two committee members representing NZSSDA on the Standards Australia technical committee, reviewing the hygienic tube and fittings standard AS 1528.
