Selwyn District Council has utilised the services of Xyst for a number of projects over the last couple of years. This has included assistance with developing sections of the Community Facilities Activity Management Plan. Xyst are genuine experts in this area and have provided high quality input to this plan that has made it both more useful and readable. Xyst have recently provided advisory services on sports field lighting for a major sports park development project in the district. We found their technical expertise in this field to be very useful in making the right decisions on significant capital investment. Xyst have also carried out parks contract audits for us and produced informative reports and analysis of the results.

Xyst have assisted Waikato District Council with the formulation of documents, which assist in setting the strategic framework and asset management of the parks and open spaces that the Council administers. These include Reserves Act Management Plans, a Parks Strategy; Activity Management Plan for the LTP and asset focused work such as the Playground Strategy. Xyst have impressed with their industry knowledge and add huge value to these projects, helping to set up Waikato District with a strategic direction for parks which has not been previously clear.

The three primary benefits of our association with Xyst and Yardstick has been: 1) meeting and collaborating with the best people in the parks business - Chris and Brian have been an invaluable resource in supporting & implementing asset management strategies in our organization; 2) meeting and sharing in the collective knowledge with other international Yardstick members including Helsinki and Dublin, and 3) providing a standardized framework to evaluate our existing AM system with other like-minded organizations and using the results to establish a clear line-of-sight for on-going improvement.
