By Matthew Wright

From the early days of European settlement to today's high-tech engineering marvels - from the first road and railways projects to the America's Cup yachts and Auckland's Sky Tower - New Zealand has a truly impressive engineering heritage. In 1990, the Institution of Professional Engineers of New Zealand (IPENZ) selecting a number of significant projects for special awards to mark their sesquicentennial year. These projects, plus others that have qualified since, are brought to life in this book by professional historian Matthew Wright.

Heavily illustrated with both historical and modern photographs, NEW ZEALAND'S ENGINEERING HERITAGE presents an impressive record of engineering works large and small from one end of the country to the other. Many, such as the Raurimu spiral and the Hamilton jet engine, are famous throughout New Zealand, while others like the Bluff all-weather package loaders are better known within their local communities.

Over 65 projects, spanning more than 130 years, feature in this record of engineering works that have contributed to the shape of New Zealand today.
