ACE New Zealand

2022/23 Annual Report

The Voice for Consulting & Engineering Aotearoa.

Who we are

We’re the voice for consulting and engineering in Aotearoa, ensuring a thriving professional consulting sector.

We raise the profile of professional services consulting in the built and natural environments and build trusting relationships, so our members have an influential voice, ready to face the challenges of today and tomorrow

A message from our president Ceinwen McNeil

Looking back on the past year, I feel great pride in the achievements of our ACE members. It’s an honour to collaborate with a dedicated board, our Chief Executive, and an organisation that strongly advocates for consultants in the built and natural environment. I’d also like to recognise the significant contributions from our Regional Chairs and volunteers. 

In 2022, our members displayed resilience and tenacity, focusing on client engagement, refining business operations, and planning for the future. Our members’ commitment to innovations like the four-day work week shows their adaptability to an ever-changing world. This approach was highlighted when Perpetual Guardian, the New Zealand firm leading this initiative, was named one of Time magazine’s top 100 most influential companies. 

At ACE, we understand that we must adapt and evolve to keep pace with the changing demands of the market, our clients, and the regulatory environment. This means we’re keeping an eye on future trends, where automation, digitisation, and innovation continue to reshape our work as consultants. 

The importance of a tertiary degree and technical excellence in business success is evolving. Today, tasks once performed by humans can be automated. This shift brings both challenges and opportunities, allowing us to focus more on strategic solutions in an increasingly volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous world. 

Our membership and our advocacy efforts for our professions continue to grow. We’re playing an active role in discussions with the government and key decision-makers on decisions affecting the future of communities in Aotearoa. We’re also leading in areas like diversity and inclusion, mental health, and wellbeing in the workplace. Our work with the Diversity Agenda is being recognised and used in global forums to improve representation at all levels in our professions. 

We couldn’t have achieved all of this without our industry partners, who share our vision of a world where net zero emissions are achieved and our communities are thriving, in line with the Kaupapa Māori values. 

Together with my board colleagues, we’re proud of our work at ACE New Zealand over the past year and remain committed to advocating for consultants. I look forward to progressing our mission together. 


Ceinwen McNeil, ACE President

Harrison Grierson - Head of Strategy & Clients

A message from our chief executive Helen Davidson

We’re living in truly unprecedented times. Governments around the world and here at home in Aotearoa have identified investment in infrastructure as being key to rebuilding and revitalising the economy in the face of growing economic instability and the ever-present challenge of the climate crisis. Couple that with the focus in the 2023 budget on environmental and social outcomes and the responsibility on professional consultants has never been more present.

In this complex environment, we feel privileged to be your consultant’s champion, working hard to build a trusted and credible voice for consulting, preparing our members for the challenges of today and tomorrow, and elevating professionalism in consulting.

Over the past year, this means continuing to tackle the issues critical to you and your business in today’s market, as well as working on our foundations to ensure we have a strong, credible, and trusted presence in the sector. We’ve rebranded to ensure we’re a more visible and powerful voice for consulting and engineering, and we’ve reset our member obligations in our Rules so we can be clear and credible with stakeholders about who our members are and what they stand for.

We’ve held the line on fair contractual terms with several client organisations and broadened our conversations on insurability and risk into the wider legal sector. We’ve been influential in advocating for better immigration settings so you can recruit the international skills you need. We’ve driven conversations on big issues like diversity and inclusion, mentally healthy workplaces, HR and good business practice, and embedding environmental and social outcomes into your business. We’ve brought our members together through several forums so we can connect and grow together. And the devasting weather events earlier this year gave us the chance to put our thought-leaders at the forefront of the conversation through national media coverage.

This year we’ll continue the hard work on your behalf, and you’ll see some new things coming your way. We’ve added engagement and support for our small to medium sized businesses as a new priority for this year. If you’re one of our small to medium businesses, we’ve got some exciting offerings to discuss with you soon, so look out for these and have your say. We’ll also launch MindSpace, our programme to help you invest in mentally healthy workplaces and continue to raise awareness and provide insights and tools for you in the space of sustainability and broader outcomes in line with the expectations of our clients. We’ll launch our competency framework and start updating our guidance notes and ensuring they are accessible, relevant and help you grow your people and business. We’re also working hard to solidify relationships and manage expectations with the existing and opposition government ahead of the elections this year.

We’re excited about the year ahead, and proud to be your partner, building influence and credibility for professional services consulting in Aotearoa.

Thank you to all our members and volunteers who support our efforts for a stronger engineering and consulting sector – as we like to say at ACE, teamwork makes the dream work.


Helen Davidson

ACE New Zealand Chief Executive

Our strategy

Our strategy focusses on elevating the voices, preparedness, and professionalism of our members, so our members can deliver remarkable outcomes for Aotearoa.

Our goal at ACE is that members have a valued and trusted voice. We’re about raising the profile and value of professional services in the eyes of our members, future members, clients, communities, and decision-makers, and growing enduring and trusting relationships to enhance our influence.

  • We rebranded to give us a clear and unambiguous presence in our market, enhancing our influence.

  • We reviewed our Rules and you voted to change them, including adding new obligations that set a clear benchmark for what ACE membership stands for, which builds our credibility with stakeholders.

  • We spoke with media about the skills shortage and on how professional consultants must be part of the conversation in the rebuild of communities devasted after the weather events earlier in 2023.

  • We had our voice heard on matters directly affecting our membership including through representation on the NZS3910 review, the Engineer to the Contract Panel Steering Group, the DIA’s steering group for the new three waters Code of Practice, Auckland Council’s consumer advisory group, and Waka Kotahi’s Road Worker Safety Governance Group and associated temporary traffic management groups.

  • We spoke loudly about our concerns with various contracts and producer statements including with Te Whatu Ora, Tauranga City Council, Christchurch City Council, at construction law conferences/forums, and with Construction Sector Accord Ministers who have affirmed their expectation for standardised contracts to be the norm in central government engagements. We also worked with Waka Kotahi to review their cost fluctuation index.

  • We advocated successfully for better immigration settings for professional services consultants to MBIE and at conferences, we piloted an international recruitment campaign with HainesAttract that attracted more than 2000 engineers and consultants to apply for roles in New Zealand, and in partnership with four other associations we secured funding from the Construction Sector Accord to support an international recruitment campaign for the construction and infrastructure sector in partnership with NZ Story which will be launched in 2023 – watch this space!

  • We’ve talked directly with minister Megan Woods and Christopher Luxon at industry and ACE-initiated events about the issues that matter to you.

  • We partnered with industry associations for our advocacy on the skills shortage, the Diversity Agenda, and our mentally healthy workplaces Kaupapa.

  • We have a strong international presence, with representation on the International Federation of Consulting Engineers (FIDIC) Directors and Secretaries Advisory Council, Sustainability Committee, and Business Practice Committee, and we won a FIDIC award in Geneva for our advocacy on the skills shortage.

Our goal is that members are ready to face the challenges of today and tomorrow and lead the way for others. We’re raising awareness among our members of key issues affecting their business, providing clarity on our objectives, roles and responsibilities, and putting the right structures, agreements, and guidance in place to enable our members to thrive and lead through the challenges.

  • We moved the Diversity Agenda forward in its evolution, moving it to be industry-led and appointing a dedicated programme director to lead it. Following consultation with members we have a clear and compelling strategy and plan of action.

  • We raised awareness about the importance of mentally healthy workplaces and how to design them, we benchmarked members’ current activities, and held workshops to map our member’s strengths and opportunities. We’ll soon be launching the culmination of this mahi, which is an ongoing programme to give professional consultants tools and resources to enable their people and business to thrive.

  • We delivered webinars, events, workshops, and shared members’ thought leadership on key issues relevant to leading professional consulting businesses in today’s environment including cultural competency and meaningful engagement with Māori, sustainability, ESG, contracts and insurance, fair pay, and more.

  • We delivered an outstanding conference focused on helping you work on your business, and not just in it.

  • We’ve supported members post this years’ extreme weather events with check-ins, advocacy, support, and learning.

Our goal is that we grow our sector to be the best it can be. We’re enabling our members to set the standard for consultancy skills and professionalism for the success of our sector.

  • We celebrated our members amazing work through our awards programme and associated PR.

  • We developed a new guidance note on Digital Engagements, and have two in development around CCCS and intellectual property and the Fair Trading Act.

  • We published our annual remuneration survey, which includes valuable insights into attraction and retention.

  • We began work on our competency framework, which will set a clear standard for what great consulting looks like and will guide skills development across our membership.

  • We continued our support of our three transport forums and Legal Panel, and we supported the Māori Leadership Forum.

Celebrating our members

ACE New Zealand members do great things every day. We celebrate their achievements at the annual ACE Awards.

Our volunteers

Thank you to everyone who volunteers their time to the professional consulting sector. Here’s a snapshot of a few volunteers who’ve made an impact to ACE this year.

DIA Code of Practice review for water

Ulrich Glasner

DIA Code of Practice review for water ACE representative
Technical Director, Water Reform at Aurecon New Zealand

I am delighted to represent ACE New Zealand on the DIA National Three Waters Code of Practice steering group. The group consists of representatives from each of the water entities, Civil Contractors NZ (CCNZ) and Iwi.

We set the scope for the code, provide governance for the development and recommend the code for adoption. There are currently 45 water codes, guides and standards around the country and the Water Services Reform creates the opportunity to develop a single code of practice creating national alignment on methods of design and infrastructure construction.

I’ve been involved in the steering group since September 2022 and enjoy the interactions and robust discussions between the industry experts to create a new national code of practice which will provide a more efficient and productive delivery of water infrastructure to New Zealand communities.

Engaging with stakeholders throughout the development of the code is ongoing and vital, and an open sector engagement process will occur in early 2024.

The code is not impacted by the changes to Water Services Reform announced in April 2023, it is expected to be completed in July 2024 with further iterations over time so that we can continue to make further improvements and include new technologies.

“Mā te whakatau, ka mōhio, mā te mōhio ka mārama, mā te mārama ka mātau, mā te mātau ka ora.”

“With discussion comes knowledge, with knowledge comes light and understanding, with light and understanding comes wisdom, with wisdom comes wellness.”

Member of ACE New Zealand Legal Forum

Charlotte Harris

Member of ACE New Zealand Legal Forum
Group Manager Shared Services Abley

I’m thrilled to represent ACE New Zealand members on the ACE Legal Forum, a roundtable of legal advisors from various ACE New Zealand members.

The forum aims to support all members in identifying and addressing industry-wide commercial and legal risks, as well as raising awareness of emerging risks as the industry develops and expands service offerings. Having joined Abley in September 2019 and the Legal Forum shortly thereafter, the forum has provided me with a fantastic way to connect with my peers in the industry and learn more about the nuances of contracting and risk management in the consulting and engineering space. In return I have been able to bring my own insight and experience from a background in technology orientated products and services, handling complex procurements and supply side commercial arrangements. The supportive network that the Legal Forum creates, and the ability to work on some taxing legal issues with legal practitioners outside of my immediate employer, is great for personal development and continuing professional development. I look forward to continuing to work with the team on developments around AI, Privacy and transition towards a digital first industry.   

ACE Awards Convenor

Rebecca Jackson

ACE Awards Convenor
Three Waters Customer & Relationships Manager for Hamilton City Council

As convenor for the ACE Awards, I love meeting and talking with the clients. Magic happens when consultants partner and collaborate with passionate clients. To maintain impartiality the convenor doesn’t do client interviews or visit physical sites, which I confess I am missing a bit!

I love that the awards are about consulting excellence rather than being about the end product of a project. Great consulting is more than technical innovation or expertise. It is also about adding value to your client and the world around you. It is as much about how you deliver the work as it is the end product.

I love being able to step outside my technical discipline area and get insight into the remarkable work of other disciplines that I wouldn’t otherwise see in my day job. I get to learn about tall buildings, tunnels, software, BIM, process improvement, archaeology, ecology and so much more.

I love seeing the outstanding work that our industry does, and the way it shapes the world around us. It might be a bridge, a safety improvement, a piece of software that helps improve infrastructure resilience, restoration of a heritage building, or research that informs climate change policy for our entire country. I get to learn about, and then celebrate, all of these wonderful things, and I feel very privileged to be able to do that.

And finally, I love seeing the dedication and passion of the other judges. The judges are all volunteers with busy lives, and the role of a judge is fairly anonymous. There is no fame and fortune in the work we do. And still every year the judges turn up and ask for more! These volunteers are giving away their precious discretionary time. The fact that 30-odd judges volunteer days (and for some of us – weeks) of their time each year speaks volumes about the personal reward of participating in the ACE awards and the reward of giving back to our industry. These judges are positive role models for our industry and our community, and show true leadership for consulting in New Zealand.

Representative on the 3910 review

Gavin Shaw

Representative on the 3910 review
Business Director for Construction Sector Advisory

I’ve been privileged to represent ACE New Zealand and EngNZ as their joint nominee on the 25-member committee tasked with reviewing and updating NZS:3910 Conditions of Contract.  As a foundation document for our construction sector, it is important that it is current, widely understood and consistently applied and promotes constructive behaviours between the parties.  There is wide consensus that 3910 is due for a comprehensive review and update, and to rebuild its reputation as a ‘standard’ by creating a document that industry is not tempted to aggressively and inconsistently amend via a proliferation of special conditions.  Central to the redraft has been an overhaul of the role of the Engineer to the Contract to address concerns over potential conflicts and provide a platform for greater consistency and improved performance.

I’ve enjoyed bringing the voice of a pragmatic practitioner to the committee, which is comprised of experienced industry leaders who bring perspectives and insights that have been fabulous to explore debate and learn from. For me, the opportunity to help create more consistent predictable outcomes in our construction sector has been energising.
