Building and construction in New Zealand 2011/12 – 2017 report
BIS Shrapnel is this morning releasing findings from its Building and Construction in New Zealand 2011/12 – 2017 report
The building sector in New Zealand is set to recover from decade low levels, buoyed by the rebuilding efforts following the devastating earthquakes in New Zealand last year. Dwelling consents are forecast to rebound from 20-year-plus low for the last two years to peak at just below the annual average of the boom years of 2003 to 2005.
However, the construction sector still faces uncertainty in the wake of continued fairly large aftershocks, which continue to rattle the nerves of householders in the midst of deciding when and if to rebuild.
For the full story, please see below. Adeline Wong, the report author and senior project manager at BIS Shrapnel, is available to discuss the report and its findings in greater detail. You can reach Adeline on +61 2 8458 4207 or +61 421 277 627; alternatively, please let me know if I can assist in arranging an interview.
