Recovery Agencies Collaborate On Forward Works Coordination
Land Information New Zealand (LINZ) is working with Canterbury recovery agencies to deliver the new Forward Works Spatial Coordination (FWSC) project, which aims to develop a shared view of horizontal infrastructure repair and built environment construction plans and activities.
Part of the Canterbury Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI) programme, the FWSC project has already delivered the first version of a tool to allow utilities and recovery agencies’ forward works to be viewed in one place.
“This tool will enable enhanced decision-making on the scheduling and sequencing of public sector construction activities, and will facilitate coordination with private sector landowners and property developers on their works planning,” says LINZ Acting Geospatial Custodian Rob Deakin.
“This will help to maximise the pace and efficiency of the built environment recovery, minimising costs and disruption due to scheduling clashes, and minimise impact on the transport network, and inconvenience to road users.”
The overall purpose of the FWSC project is to facilitate the online sharing of information about current and planned horizontal infrastructure and built environment construction, repair and maintenance activities.
This work will result in better decisions and improved efficiencies.  It provides a single, integrated view of forward works – with timeframes, locations, etc – by combining data from several different authoritative sources.
“As such we will see reduced conflicts, costs, and delays to repair infrastructure, and repair or rebuild of residential and commercial buildings – which, in turn, will mean a faster economic recovery and enhanced community wellbeing.
“Further development of the tool is planned as other rebuild programmes are integrated, and coordination constraints are identified, and we plan to release a publically accessible forward works viewer within a few months.”
