Building Update

Activity in the building sector especially in Central Otago, Canterbury and Auckland is very strong. Elsewhere some activity building now and a lot of momentum going forward. How to make the most of the upside, without problems. We are seeing strong demand for all types of weather boards and some fabulous jobs about. The rising costs of Cedar in particular has seen more and more Radiata BUT it is important to remember it is not as stable as Cedar and is therefore not suitable for stains and or dark colours. Decking in general is showing signs of resurgence and we are again seeing a lot of interest in non tropical hardwood decking. Solid Hardwood T&G flooring remains a big seller for us, although substitution to engineered flooring is increasing.

/imagesdb/Issue/283ae19f-4125-4c2a-b276-7a18c196d7c1.jpgThe year in review
A great year with strong growth again, although as is the norm in our industry there are lots of peaks and troughs along the way. Very strong regional patterns emerging with 3 areas standing out. Central Otago, Canterbury and Auckland are the drivers, the rest are small by comparison.
/imagesdb/Issue/2482450c-c251-453a-98f0-89b2c8703747.jpgSupply Chain update
Not a lot of surprises, naturally durable timber supplies are limited and by and large the recovery from GFC and re build in NZ have stretched supply chain capacities to supply.
