Job Description

  • Be the builders of change in the building system!
  • Apply your extensive knowledge of mechanical & hydraulic services and the building code in this supportive team environment
  • Be involved in an exciting and high-priority work programme

Be part of the biggest reform of the building regulatory system in the last 15 years. We are looking for a Senior Building Services Advisor to help us create a better building sector - not only for those in the industry, but for all New Zealanders.  Play your part in shaping one of New Zealand's leading sectors that employs 250,000 workers and is set to contribute more than $41 billion to New Zealand's economy in 2023.

About the role

We're looking for a senior building services advisor to help us shape and set the performance requirements of the Building Code, specialising in mechanical and hydraulic services. 

What we do

The Building System Performance branch, within MBIE, is the central regulator and steward of New Zealand's building and construction system. It sets the strategic direction for the building system as well as providing policy and technical advice on rules, regulations and legislation for the building system to meet New Zealand's current and future needs.

A key priority for the branch in the coming year is improving the building regulatory system in the key components of Products, Occupational Regulation, Risk and Liability. This work is crucial in providing New Zealand with safe and durable buildings, by enhancing the performance of the construction sector and balancing accountabilities.

The Building Performance and Engineering team are supporting the regulatory reform by changing the way we review and set technical requirements in the Building Code. We are increasing the size of the team to ensure we can deliver updates to the Building Code twice a year.

What you will bring

To be our senior building services advisor, specialising in mechanical and hydraulic services, you'll need to have a minimum of 5 year's / extensive experience with the design, installation or inspection of mechanical and hydraulic services.

You may have been working in private practice, a local council, or teaching the subject at a tertiary provider. You'll have a deep understanding of domestic and commercial service applications and compliance options. If you also have piped services or gas installation experience this would be an advantage to your application.
