ACE New Zealand

2023/24 Annual Report

The Voice for Consulting & Engineering Aotearoa.

Who we are

ACE New Zealand is the voice for consulting and engineering in Aotearoa. We represent more than 260 firms employing around 15,500 engineers, project managers, planners, scientists, architects, surveyors and other technical disciplines who provide specialist services across the built and natural environment.

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

A message from our president Ceinwen McNeil

As I reflect on the past 12 months, and indeed the past five years that I have been involved with ACE, it is with pride and admiration for our members.

In 2023 it felt like the country was holding its breath, waiting for the election to take place with a change of Government proving to be inevitable. Throughout this time, we focused on representing the interests of ACE members and increasing the influence of the organisation through targeted advocacy, working collaboratively with other industry bodies and partners.

This provided us with a robust platform to engage with the new Government. Having high awareness, tangible examples and offering potential solutions means ACE is seen as an industry body of value – a cohesive and representative voice for the small, medium and large organisations we represent.

Our advocacy work has been strengthened by better international engagement through FIDIC, with ACE recognised for its willingness to challenge and provide frank and fearless advice to a global community.  This has included showcasing The Diversity Agenda which is enabling others to build understanding and capability in diversity, equity and inclusion.

Our Chief Executive Helen Davidson was appointed to Chair of the FIDIC Directors and Secretaries Advisory Council and also Chair the FIDIC Membership Fee Review Task Group. It should be noted the latter was triggered by our request to review the fee structure with a view to greater equity for smaller countries.

We continue to work closely with our trans-Tasman partners, including Consult Australia and Engineers Australia.  This sharing of knowledge and capability allows us to collaborate with the best of our region.

We have been able to share leading practice developed here in Aotearoa, including our development of Mindspace, the Competency Framework and our fantastic Futurespace conference – all designed to uplift the capability of our members and sector.

This is my last message as President of ACE New Zealand, a role I have been honoured to hold since 2023.  I initially joined the ACE Board to advocate for our small and medium enterprises. At the time I was the Chief Executive of a boutique engineering firm, at the forefront of digital, talent and collaboration.

Across our network I could see much of the innovation and agility coming from the businesses of this size in our sector – often achieved through scarce resources and with a willingness to fail fast.  One of my highlights as President was the inaugural SME Summit, a key enablement pillar of our strategy.

During my time with ACE, I have seen the membership of our Board evolve and become more representative of our sector and the communities we serve.

At the Board table we have our large and SME firms represented, working side by side to bring to life ACE’s vision of being the consultant’s champion, with our objectives being voice, preparedness and professionalism.

I am honoured and inspired by my fellow Board members, who generously volunteer their time.  Thank you to each of you and to Helen and the ACE team who really do put in the mahi. Lastly thank you to our members who really make this a vibrant, dynamic sector committed to having true impact. together. 


Ceinwen McNeil, ACE President

Director of Central and Local Government at Aurecon

A message from our chief executive Helen Davidson

The last 12 months have brought about many challenges and opportunities for all of us. As the voice for consulting and engineering in Aotearoa, ACE has been working hard to elevate our voice on issues and decisions that impact our members and to grow our sector to be the best it can be.  

Through meetings, letters and other engagements with ministers, there is no doubt we are recognised by the Government and its agencies as a trusted and authoritative voice for consultants working in the built and natural environment. We provide trusted advice, we challenge, and we offer solutions to influence a stronger, healthier sector.

We are fearless advocates for fair and insurable terms of engagement, and this year we worked with members and clients across the country to resolve concerns about onerous terms and conditions in contracts.

We made submissions on policy changes regarding building, transport, three waters, the infrastructure pipeline and more.  

And we continue to celebrate and promote the business of consulting through our annual ACE Awards and communication channels – proudly telling the world about the remarkable work our members do every day to help their clients and communities.  

We’ve helped ready the sector for the future by providing an understanding of issues that member consultancies are facing and a starting point for action. We know that your people are your greatest asset, and we all have a role to play in fostering healthy workplaces that attract and retain great talent in our sector. That’s why in 2023, we launched Mindspace, an initiative supported by the Business Leaders’ Health and Safety Forum, to give professional consultancies in Aotearoa the tools and resources required for a mentally thriving industry.

As a founding member of the Diversity Agenda – the award-winning movement that aims to help engineering and architecture firms become more diverse and inclusive – we supported the programme into its next evolution. The Diversity Agenda is making great progress to create better professions for all – women, Māori, Pacific Peoples, LGBTQIA+, disabled, neurodiverse and other minority groups. It’s testament to the businesses we represent that this movement has gone from strength to strength.

We’ve taken a leadership role on creating structures, agreements and guidance to help members’ action change around key issues. This includes creating our online Knowledge Hub offering resources on contracts, producer statements, talent management, operational excellence, and culture and the environment.

Until now there has been no authoritative framework setting out the core skills, competencies and behaviours of a successful consultant to help businesses identify how to develop their people, and where to best invest resources to ensure people are the best they can be and aligned to industry best practice. This year we created The Base: The competency framework for consultants in the built and natural environment to guide the knowledge and skills members require to provide excellent consulting, whether they’re a sole trader or a large organisation. The final framework is due for publication in mid-2024. 

We’ve focused on connecting members so they can learn and grow together through our transport, legal, and large firm forums, and our support to the Māori leadership forum, as well as webinars, events and our annual Futurespace conference. The 2023 conference in Wellington brought together more than 180 members and stakeholders to discuss challenges and opportunities, with a focus on helping them work on their business, rather than just in it. 

We’ve also focussed on growing our global connections through FIDIC, giving us access to global best practice and thought leadership to keep you at the top of your game.

The ACE team and I will continue supporting our members to embrace opportunity in the good times and the challenging times, walking alongside them as they invest in building sustainable and successful businesses.

A huge thank you to all our members and volunteers who bring so much passion to the work they do and the communities they serve – it is palpable and something special that we need to celebrate.

Bring on the next 12 months.


Helen Davidson

ACE New Zealand Chief Executive

Our strategy

We ensure our members have a valued and trusted voice, that they’re prepared to face the challenges of today and tomorrow, and that we grow our sector to be the best it can be. To bring our strategy to life, we focus on advocacy, leadership and enablement.

We advocate for our members so they have a voice on issues and decisions that impact them, to strengthen the sector.

  • We are fearless advocates for fair and insurable terms of engagement for our members. This year we alerted members to concerns about onerous terms and conditions in contracts with Christchurch City Council, Dunedin City Council, the University of Canterbury and the Government Property Group, encouraging our members to ensure the standard form ACE New Zealand Conditions of Contract for Consultancy Services (CCCS) or All of Government CCCS as the basis for all engagements.
  • Members had input into our submissions on: The proposed changes to the Building Levy; the review of the Building Consent System; the proposed revision of NZS3910; assurance over climate-related disclosures; the draft National Engineering Design Standards for Three Waters; the Construction Sector Accord led review of the AOG CCCS Special Conditions; the Reserve Bank’s the review of the Insurance (Prudential Supervision) Act; and the proposed NZ Transport Agency Waka Kotahi Z15-1 Standard – Delivery of Designs, As Built and Digital Information
  • ACE New Zealand representatives participated on a number of policy and review working groups, representing the voice of the consulting sector, including the review of NZS3910, the Engineering Design Standards for Three Waters, the review of the Temporary Traffic Management (TTM) Credentials Framework Governance Group, the TTM Industry Steering Group, the Waka Kotahi Road Workers Safety Governance Group, and the Management Committee for the Society of Construction Contract Practitioners.
  • We wrote to Government ministers, before and after the election, inviting them to engage with members on key issues affecting them, such as uncertainty in the infrastructure pipeline, the continuing skills shortage, improving procurement processes and investment in technology and infrastructure. We had two meetings with ministers and hosted two breakfast events, which gave ministers the opportunity to discuss key issues with members.
  • To help alleviate the skills shortage, we went to market with a sector-wide international recruitment campaign developed in partnership with NZ Story and funded by the Construction Sector Accord.
  • And we continued to celebrate and promote the business of consulting through our annual ACE Awards and communication channels – proudly telling the world about the remarkable work our members do every day to help their clients and communities.
We help ready the sector for the future by providing an understanding of issues that member consultancies are facing and a starting point for action.
  • We shared news, information and resources that were market-focused and brought whole-system perspectives, such as our annual Remuneration Survey and Remuneration Pulse Survey with Strategic Pay and our fortnightly eNews.
  • We launched Mindspace, an initiative supported by the Business Leaders’ Health and Safety Forum, to give professional consultancies in Aotearoa the tools and resources required for a mentally thriving industry. Through the Mindspace website, we share research, articles, webinars, tools and resources to help our sector understand how workplaces and the work we do influence wellbeing, and to make improvements so their people flourish.
  • We became the operational home for the Diversity Agenda – the award-winning programme and movement that aims to help engineering and architecture firms become more diverse and inclusive.
  • We created structures, agreements and guidance to help members action change around key issues, such as templates, practice notes and guidance documents. This year we created an online Knowledge Hub which provides greater visibility to the resources we have available to support members. New resources are in the pipeline, including quality management, conflict of interest, business risk management and a contract checklist.
We enable professionalism in the sector through creating connections and upskilling around relevant consultancy skills and larger issues that will create more effective consultancies.
  • We provided relevant training and development for our members, guidance documents, and opportunities for members to connect with ACE New Zealand and each other, such as our breakfast events and forums.
  • We launched the draft of The Base: The competency framework for consultants in the built and natural environment to guide the knowledge and skills members require to provide excellent consulting, whether they’re a sole trader or a large organisation. It’s an authoritative framework that sets out the core skills, competencies and behaviours of a successful consultant to help businesses identify how to develop their people, and where to best invest resources to ensure people are the best they can be and aligned to industry best practice. The final version will be launched in mid-2024.
  • We held a fantastic Futurespace conference in Wellington in September, attracting more than 180 members and stakeholders to discuss challenges and opportunities in engineering and consulting leadership, with a focus on helping them work on their business and not just in it.
  • We recognised our members’ work at the annual ACE Awards Gala that celebrated consultants at the top of their game.
  • We provided a range of webinars and in-person training and events.
  • We published a range of articles targeted at assisting members with key challenges and connecting them with each other and key decision-makers.
  • Our forums connected members around specific consulting areas to help grow a stronger sector, including in transport, legal and large firms. We also continued our support of the Māori Leadership Forum that connects Māori leaders from across our member businesses.

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.

ACE Working Group member

Ulrich Glasner

ACE Working Group member –
Quality management guidance and competency framework
Managing Director, Pedersen Read

I have been very fortunate to be involved with two significant ACE New Zealand initiatives – the competency framework and the quality management guidance – both of which underpin what it means to be a professional consulting engineer.

The competency framework recognises that there is more to being a successful consulting engineer than just technical skills. I am very passionate about this. Our ability to produce innovative technical solutions is potentially wasted if we are unable to communicate the benefits of such solutions to our clients. By better understanding the core competencies, behaviours and values required to be professional engineering consultants, we can better mentor and guide future engineering leaders through their careers.

The quality management guidance recognises that quality processes help ensure successful outcomes but are also a core risk management tool. We can hopefully reduce the number, scale and impact of any errors that occur through an improved understanding of the processes involved in producing a technical design, including the importance of good communication.

I have thoroughly enjoyed participating in these projects. Periodically stepping back from my day job to consider some of the broader aspects of what it means to be a professional consulting engineer reminds me of their importance. Involvement is also fun and a great way to learn something from the other consultants involved.

Representative on the Industry Advisory Group

Charlotte Harris

Representative on the Industry Advisory Group –
Design Framework Steering Group (HERA)
Manager, Sustainability and Climate Change, Aurecon

It has been wonderful to represent ACE New Zealand over the past year on the Industry Advisory Group for the HERA-led research project ‘Low carbon design for a changing environment’.

The objective of the project, which has also received BRANZ funding support, is to develop a design framework to reduce construction waste, lifecycle embodied carbon, and to enhance the circular economy for construction materials, with a pilot for low-rise buildings.

Through this mahi, I was invited to attend a circular economy hui hosted by the Kingdom of the Netherlands, where I met others who were driven to progress Aotearoa New Zealand’s circular economy transition.

As strategists, designers, engineers and advisors, the consultancy community will play a pivotal role in the systems change required and collaboration has never been more important!

ACE representative on the committee of the SCCP

Rebecca Jackson

ACE representative on the management committee of the newly created Society of Construction Contract Practitioners (SCCP)
Manager – Central Project Strategy and Delivery, Beca

I’ve loved having the privilege of being a part of the team that recently launched the new Society of Construction Contract Practitioners (SCCP). It is a technical group of Engineering New Zealand and, guided by principles of impartiality, fairness, transparency, integrity and ethics, it aspires to foster contract administration excellence in our industry.

I joined the management committee, a group of passionate and seasoned practitioners from a cross-section of our industry, on behalf of ACE. We were tasked with the rapid transition into a self-sustaining initiative following the first phase, which created a pilot Engineer to Contract Panel. The Construction Sector Accord provided funding for both phases; an initiative born out of industry feedback – we need to do better.

It has been a fantastic experience so far. Having a background in the construction sector and very much within the construction contract practitioner space, being part of an initiative that aspires to foster excellence in contract administration links to a huge part of who I am. There has been a lot of hard mahi to date – creating a space for improvement, to advocate for best practice and to provide a supportive network for likeminded practitioners. And there is more work to come as our membership builds.

A wonderful opportunity to be part of something that aspires to help improve our industry, and a way for me to give something back to our industry.

Thank you to ACE for providing the opportunity and to Beca for fully supporting this initiative.

ACE Working Group member

Gavin Shaw

ACE Working Group member –
quality management guidance and building consent system review
Partner – Project Controls, Frequency

I am enjoying contributing to ACE New Zealand, including the revision of its quality management guidance through my involvement in the working group. The group is looking at how we can clearly communicate what a quality management system entails, why it is important, how firms can ensure they have a robust system in place, and how we can provide resources to make it easier for small firms to set up the basics by learning from others.

I was also a member of the reference group that provided input into ACE’s submission on the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment’s review of the building consent system. This important piece of work provided feedback on the proposed changes to improve the system to ensure greater efficiency and encourage innovation.

It has been very satisfying to contribute to the voice of the organisations that ACE represents and to see so many organisations working together. I am motivated by the desire to influence positive change in the industry.
