The CABE has recently increased its membership in New Zealand, and is working with a number of key influential individuals to further increase its activity there. The CABE is looking forward to playing a larger role within Building Engineering in New Zealand, as such expertise can assist in developing knowledge, and also encourages best practice on a global level.

Paul relocated to New Zealand early this year and welcomed the opportunity to become both a member of the CABE and an interview panel member for future applicants.
Kevin and Paul work together with The Fletcher Construction Company in Auckland and hope to encourage colleagues to apply for membership of the association and look forward to working with Tony and the team in Northampton on panel member training and eventually on meeting new candidates for chartered membership.
