Breakout Session 


GHD Terra – Transforming Compliance


Compliance with resource consents presents an operational challenge for consent holders. It contributes meaningfully to operational costs and represents a risk where non-compliance influences the future of operations, may trigger remedial works, and influences capital expenditure. As practitioners, we see consent holders struggling with resourcing, data collection and quality, compliance management and reporting. Increasingly, there is demand for improvements in efficiency,  accuracy and overall visibility of compliance risk. 
GHD Terra is an enterprise data solution for site assessment and compliance management, developed through collaboration of GHD practitioners and key clients. Developed in the Microsoft Azure cloud environment and with process automation technology, GHD Terra consolidates operational, environmental and consent information, provides real-time dashboards and automates the generation of compliance reports and stakeholder communications.  Used internally within GHD, Terra is also being provided as an enterprise solution for our clients as a transformative change in compliance efficiency, accuracy and visibility.
