Constructive 2017, the New Zealand Construction Industry Forum under the auspices of the Registered Master Builders Association, was held in Auckland from 2-4 August.
There is no "great crisis" in funding residential construction as banks are very keen to support mums and dads to buy homes, BNZ head of institutional banking Paul Blair says.
Housing. For many people it's damp, it's cold and it's expensive. But the industry wants to change that. Today is the first day of the Constructive Forum, which will try and solve the housing crisis by working together to be more effective.
