ACENZ represents close to 11,000 consulting engineers spread across New Zealand. Our 184 Member Firms specialise in a range of engineering and consultancy services for clients and contractors working in the built and natural environment.
We represent the business needs and advisory role specific to company perspectives, often advocating on behalf of the firm itself, rather than the individual engineer. As a result, most of our delegates and attendees are senior level management including CEO and Director level. We also place high value on the Young Professionals (the rising stars) who one day will be industry leaders and company owners.

The Masterspec specification system is a fully cloud-based information management and sharing tool that not only produces up-to-date and accurate specifications, but allows members of the design, engineering and construction team to work simultaneously on a single specification.
Masterspec’s online system consists of over 850 pre-written sections, including hundreds of specialist Services and Structural & Civil sections. All specification sections are kept up to date and reflect the latest Building Codes, NZ Standards and industry Codes of Practice.
Masterspec allows the creation and saving of practice Office Masters and has an easy Update Manager tool allowing 1-click updating of your specification. There’s also a comprehensive Q&A tool to pre-edit your specification to include only information relevant to your project.
The move to digital information sharing in the construction industry is gaining momentum and overseas has shown real benefits - a US-based HVAC contractor has used BIM information sharing to achieve a reduction in variation costs from 18% to just 3%. Masterspec has been built from the ground up to allow further digital information sharing capabilities to be built in and seamlessly deployed in the future.
