Media & News

Registered Master Builders is the leading industry commentator on all things construction. We have a high media profile and the largest share of media voice of anyone in the sector. Our views and comments are sought after by all sections of the media and we regularly publish articles and media releases.

Our magazine, Building Today, features comments from our CEO and President and we are often asked to provide input for other industry publications. We are invited to speak at many industry events and conferences and to a wide variety of audiences.

We also promote our Members to the public with an active media and PR programme through our events such as House of the Year, New Zealand Commercial Project Awards, Apprentice of the Year and the pan-construction industry Constructive forum. We know from research that the House of the Year Awards is the most recognized awards programme in New Zealand and many homeowners select a Master Builder because of it. 

On the right menu you will find some of the more recent articles and media releases and our official magazine Building Today.
