Get an approval to use new products and materials for new infrastructure
Why you need an approval to use new products and materials
We must approve any new materials and products that are used in infrastructure assets that will be operated and maintained by the council.
We do this to ensure we meet our guidelines and standards.
Auckland's investment in its infrastructure has a value of hundreds of millions of dollars in construction, maintenance, and renewal of assets.
The size and complexity of this investment requires that the lifespan of infrastructure assets provides best value to our ratepayers.
We currently specify a design life of up to and beyond 100 years for most infrastructure assets.
How to get an approval to use new products and materials
