Building & Construction

A guide to the growth in Building Consents

Building activity is at a high level and likely to remain there in the short term, the slow start to 2028 came as a surprise to us all. Still unclear as to why??  A theme we are hearing from clients and our Bank seems to suggest political uncertainty combined with the uncertainty on house values in Auckland are leaving things hesitant.The latest statistics from the Department of Statistics as below depicts the state of the nation. What is clear is that we lack enough people with the skills to manage all the large projects. We also lack enough people with the trade skills at most things as well. this of course makes ramping up the building scene kind of thwart with difficulty. Symptoms of the debacle is the lack of profitability in a lot of the players. Fletcher Construction is not alone!!!

Showhome for A1 Homes in Cambridge featuring Timspec Cedar

A1 Show home in Cambridge showing off that great Cedar!!!

We have seen with Denny's help a move from Western Red Cedar being specified for cladding to seeing more and more Accoya filling the gap. Lots of jobs where the owners want a sustainable choice and or are aware of the warranty of Accoya even when using dark colours swings the day. Check out some recent jobs we are supplying.
