Local Authority Property Conference - Rotorua 2018


This year’s Local Authority Property Conference (LAPA) was hosted in the fast growing city of Rotorua and was yet again a tremendous success. As a proud long-time LAPA sponsor, SPM Assets exhibited at the three day event which proved a fantastic opportunity to meet many of our existing and new clients in a more relaxed environment.



Innovation – One of our Company Values


SPM Assets has prided itself on being innovative since conceiving a web based software application in 2001 before the term cloud was fashioned. Innovation is one of our five company values and one of the ways we live by this value is to regularly hold an event called FedEx Day. FedEx Day is a 24-hour period where staff can choose to work on any project as part of a group that they think could be of benefit to the organisation. We held our first FedEx Day in 2014 and most recently held another one this month.



Building Information Models through Surveys


Surveying will generate a significant amount of asset data; however is this the right data? How will the organisation report, analyse and ultimately use the information gained from the survey to support its asset management planning and works programmes? These questions can be answered through understanding an organisation’s business needs; its need for the data, expenditure drivers, and existing policies and standards such as maintenance and renewal practices. The data collected and the building information model (BIM) created must be aligned with these to ensure it is meaningful and can be easily used to produce the required outcomes.



Asset Management Professional Practice Seminar


At the recent Australasian Housing Institute seminar in October, Rex Harland from Tamaki Regeneration Company (TRC) and Kees Beentjes from SPM Assets NZ, provided a joint presentation on the data, systems and business processes employed by TRC (a community housing provider in Auckland) to support decision making around the 'regeneration of the Tamaki area'.



Otago Polytechnic


Otago Polytechnic delivers tertiary level courses and programmes for 5,000 full-time students across two primary campuses located near Dunedin CBD, as well as satellite campuses in Auckland and Cromwell. Whilst facing challenges with compliance reporting, Otago Polytechnic required systems to manage existing buildings and infrastructure. Council and the executive team recognised that the ageing building portfolio now needed an evidence based approach to asset management planning.
