Confidence Survey

The responses indicated a confidence that the inherent strength and talent in the New Zealand building industry will prevent any potential long-term impacts of the global financial crisis, and suggested some silver lining with the majority of respondents believing.

  • the industry with emerge stronger after the downturn
  • that governmental reform can help mitigate any potential long term effects by improving current processes
  • the industry recognises that this is an opportunity to become more efficient.

The ability to streamline consent applications came across as a big opportunity, reiterated in the 170 completed responses to last month's survey on the proposed online Building Consent Application and Lodgement system. We are busy collating the results to give to the Department of Building & Housing later this month ensuring members of the architectural community have their voices heard. To get an idea of similar systems check out Singapore's CORENET e-PlanCheck System, and Land Division Application System in South Australia.

This month's feature in ebossNOW is industry excellence, profiling products and solutions from the industry's leading suppliers, alongside award winning design, featuring a profile by APL of ADNZ's supreme award winner, Noel Jessop, with his Mt Eden house.
