12d Model was the terrain modelling, surveying and civil engineering software package selected for design at SCIRT.
SCIRT's Training Centre worked closely with Civil Contractors New Zealand (CCNZ), Connexis (the Industry Training Organisation (ITO) for the Civil Infrastructure industry) and other industry leaders to develop a Civil Trade certification.
To resource the SCIRT infrastructure rebuild programme, an additional 600 operational workers were needed.
In January 2012 a capability analysis identified the SCIRT programme needed 600 more operational team members than were available locally. This raised a significant programme risk of having a workforce with many new entrants and under-skilled resources.
SCIRT, Civil Contractors New Zealand and Connexis drove the creation of an industry-wide Training Advisory Group.
More than 2000 people from over 100 organisations joined forces under the SCIRT umbrella at the post-earthquake peak of the rebuild. Hundreds of people came and went, bringing innovation and tenacity to an enormous task.
