ECan has responsibilities for undertaking building control work, and for performing a range of other functions under the Building Act 2004, for large dams. We use a panel of chartered professional engineers with knowledge and expertise in dam engineering to provide us with necessary technical advice and to make recommendations that help us to fulfil these responsibilities. We are now seeking expressions of interest from suitably qualified and experienced engineers to be members of this panel.
Panel members will be required to provide written advice and make recommendations in relation to applications for the following:
• Building Consents;
• Building Consent Amendments;
• Code Compliance Certificates;
• Infringements and Notices to Fix;
• Certificates of Acceptance;
• Certificates of Public Use; and
• Determinations.
Members of the panel may be appointed to assist with any of the above types of application when received by ECan. Appointments to provide assistance will be made amongst panel members on a case by case basis, based on skills, expertise and availability.
Panel members need to have a comprehensive understanding of the application of the Building Act 2004 and the Building Code to large dams. They must have sufficient resources to ensure that assistance can be provided in a timeframe that enables ECan to meet statutory requirements specified under the Building Act, as well as carrying out hold point inspections as needed during the construction phase in a timely way.
ECan is seeking to appoint three panel members for an initial three-year period, with the possibility that this will be extended to five years.
