Who we are

Set up by Asset Management industry leaders in New Zealand two decades ago, IDS provides evidence-based strategic support to asset infrastructure management professionals and councils around the country.


Drawing on performance-modelling intellectual property developed in New Zealand for New Zealand, we provide solutions for the industry to maintain, improve and protect their infrastructure networks.

Our solid, reliable, centralised resource of performance-modelling intellectual property sits alongside our comprehensive service offering and experienced modellers.


How we can help

We are here to offer you support for your key infrastructure asset, whether its water, roading or something more personalised, regardless of your organisation's size or in-house expertise. You can draw on our extensive resource pool which spans across 11 consultant and contractor organisations.​

We have deterioration models developed in New Zealand for New Zealand conditions. These assist us in predicting future risk of infrastructure failure, renewal and inspection needs.

Our reliable recommendations and modelling outcomes will help you answer strategic questions enabling you to make effective decisions for your asset.

Success Stories

Tasman District Council achieves significant savings thanks to IDS Bureau Service using dTIMS

“Our council expected us to find some savings, and the modelling tool gave us the confidence to be able to reduce our reseals and rehabilitations by about 30%. Good data means good results. IDS helped us with our data quality which was important for our modelling outcomes and informing our long-term planning.”

NZTA calls on dTIMS after Kaikoura Earthquake

“On Monday 14 November 2016, the second biggest earthquake in New Zealand's history hit south-west of Kaikoura. The quake devastated the main transport arterial route through Kaikoura which links Picton and Christchurch, cutting off the small town and severely impacting the main freight transportation network in the region. The New Zealand Transport Agency's immediate requirement was to analyse and advise on a safe, alternate transport as quickly as possible. We had to have results in an extremely short period of time and dTIMS was invaluable in providing that response”
