1. Sullivan, Brigid. Brand Trust: elements and influences on Industrial Landlord/Tenant Relationships .

Degree: 2012, AUT University

There is a lot of research into the concept of brand trust amongst numerous industries but it has not been researched in relation to the real estate industry and in particular industrial property developments. The elements and influences on brand trust are numerous and disparate dependant on the industry within which the concept is researched. However, the literature did identify certain common elements and influences amongst the industries researched. The existing literature on commercial and industrial property developments identifies there are many aspects of a property that tenants take into consideration when leasing including location of a building or site, rent incentives, lease terms, operating expenses and management of the property. There are also many intangible influences on the decision making process that are not as easily identifiable but can primarily be recognised from the relationship between landlords and their tenants in terms of trust, balance of power and overall satisfaction. The existing literature identifies that the tangible aspects of the relationship are considered more significant than the relationship in commercial leasing. There is a clear gap in the research between the concept of brand trust and its value in landlord/tenant relationships in industrial property developments. This dissertation proposes to answer the following questions: What are the elements of brand trust in landlord/tenant relationships in industrial property developments? What are the influences on brand trust in landlord/tenant relationships in industrial property developments? What is the influence of brand trust in comparison to other aspects of commercial leasing on tenant retentions in industrial developments? This dissertation primarily reviews the existing literature on the concept of brand trust as well as the literature on landlord/tenant relationships in industrial property developments and the influences on tenant retentions. An exploratory research method is utilized to collect data. Semi structured interviews were conducted with 6 respondents who were tenants of medium-large sized industrial property developments with multiple tenants and managed directly by the landlord. This study identifies that the predominant elements of brand trust in landlord/tenant relationships in industrial property developments include accessibility, benevolence, communication, competence, conflict resolution techniques, cooperation, coordination, credibility, equality, flexibility and professionalism. The primary influences on brand trust are the level of landlord power, the level of tenant power, the economic environment, the tenant mix in a development, the power balance in the landlord/tenant relationship, word of mouth and experience. Subsequently this dissertation identifies that the influences on tenant retentions in industrial property developments include switching costs, alternative attractiveness, the tangible aspects of the relationship including lease, location and building, the economic… Advisors/Committee Members: Baxter, Roger (advisor).

2. Dell'Orto, Francesca. Recherches de phénoménologie génétique entre le temps et la vie : Investigations on genetic phenomenology inbetween time and life.

Degree: Docteur es, Philosophie (métaphysique, épistémologie, esthétique), 2013, Université Paris-Sorbonne – Paris IV

Ce travail prend en examen le rapport, du point de vue phénoménologique, entre les notions de temps et de vie, et leur implications transcendantales. À ce but les recherches exposées ici se présentent comme l’étude, plus thématique que historiographique, et le développement de questions qui s’appuient sur le noyau profond de l’oeuvre husserlienne, bien que pas toujours directement abordées par Husserl lui-même. Notre thèse consiste à reconsidérer le statut du transcendantal depuis l’articulation entre la vie et le temps, c’est-à-dire entre la vie et la mort, en interprétant par cela toute l’évolution de la philosophie occidentale, qui s’est significativement déroulée sous le signe de la mort socratique. Husserl donne l’impression d’osciller entre la nécessité de distinguer la vie, en tant que détermination transcendantale, de la temporalité, relative à la dimension du constitué, et leur assimilation, dans la mesure où il reconnaît à une certain type de temporalité une originarité constituante et absolue. En d’autres mots, la tentative de définir la vie tombe sur la même ambiguïté qui émerge déjà à l’époque des Zeitvorlesungen à propos de la conscience absolue: tout comme le seuil entre temporalité constituante et temporalité constituée devient mince et perméable, de même façon celui entre vie et temporalité s’estompe en ce que Husserl appelle Vor-Zeitigung et pour laquelle «nous n’avons pas de noms». Il en va de la possibilité de penser la vie sans la réduire à une détermination physique ou biologique, en évitant tout naturalisme (ce qui ne signifie pas son complet discrédit), et de faire ressortir la priorité du sens toujours impliquée par la temporalité, sans pour autant la connecter à une détermination psychologiste.

This work takes into consideration the relationship, as in a phenomenological perspective, between the notions of time and life, and their transcendental implications. To this aim, here is presented a research coping with the study, thematic more than historiographic, and with the development of those issues that, even if not always tackled as such by Husserl himself, deal with the deeper core of Husserlian oeuvre. This dissertation reconsiders the status of the transcendental after the articulation between life and time, that is to say, between life and death, interpreting in this light the whole evolution of Western philosophy, significantly unwound under the sign of Socrates’ death.Husserl gives the impression to swing back and forth between the necessity of distinguishing life, as transcendental determination, and temporality, inasmuch as related to the dimension of the constituted, and their assimilation, insofar as he acknowledges to a certain type of temporality a constituent and absolute originarity. In other words, the attempt to define life meets the same ambiguity already emerged at the time of the Zeitvorlesungen about the absolute conscience: as the threshold between constituent and constituted temporality grows thinner and more permeable, that between life and temporality softens in…

3. Raina, Priyanka. An examination of the retention practice in the New Zealand construction industry .

Degree: AUT University

The payment mechanism of construction projects is different compared to other industries. For every payment made to a contractor or subcontractor a sum of money is held back which can vary from a low of 2% to as high as 10%. This deduction is a phenomenon peculiar to construction and is known as retention, practiced in the construction industry for well over a century. Retentions are held by both clients and contractors and as such involve the whole supply chain. However the effect the practice has on each party varies significantly as a result of which there have been serious debates regarding its continuation world over. Much research and a number of enquiries have been carried out in other countries such as the US, UK and Australia. There is anecdotal evidence suggesting issues around retentions in New Zealand however there is a lack of empirical research on this subject area. This raises the need for undertaking this research to find out the present status of retentions in the New Zealand construction industry. It is in this context, that this research aims to examine the practice of retentions in the New Zealand construction industry with the main focus on identifying the issues surrounding the practice and exploring feasible alternatives to replace retentions. The study also focuses on finding the purpose of retentions and weighing its detriments and benefits in order to determine the value in the continuation of a practice which dates back to the early 19th century when construction markets were so very different. The current research has adopted a mixed methods approach comprising of three stages of data gathering; preliminary data collection by interviewing experts and gaining rich experiential data from them followed by an industry wide questionnaire survey. The data collected by the two approaches was then validated using a qualitative survey once again utilizing experts from the construction industry in New Zealand. The techniques used for data analysis were descriptive and inferential statistics and thematic analysis. The findings of the research study revealed that retentions fulfill a number of purposes in construction contracts, the primary one being performance security. It was further determined that performance security includes a range of purposes from insolvency to defect rectification. The research found that problems with regards to the practice are prevalent in the New Zealand construction industry and it was identified to be extremely serious especially from the sub-contractors perspective. Further the research found a number of issues attached to the practice of retentions; the main issue being the security of retention monies. The study weighed the costs and benefits of the practice and it was found that the benefits of the practice are greater for one party i.e. the clients and the costs are greater for the other two i.e. the contractors and subcontractors. The study found that even though there are issues with the use of trust accounts however in order to secure retentions it was a… Advisors/Committee Members: Tookey, John (advisor), Neitzert, Thomas (advisor).
