At a time of extraordinary growth and unprecedented opportunity our industry has agreed it is time to move beyond piecemeal, fragmented and incremental innovation.
It is time to work together on a strategy to progress the biggest issues and opportunities we face – issues such as the skills shortages, boom and bust cycles and procurement issues – to create a better built environment for New Zealand.
The Industry Transformation Agenda (ITA) outlines a practical approach for transforming our building and construction industry.
Our industry is at the heart of New Zealand’s economy. It generates 13% of GDP and employs 232,000 people. The assets and buildings we build directly affect the quality of life of all New Zealanders. Addressing the challenges we face will benefit everyone – companies, the sector, users and ultimately all New Zealanders. For example, 30% of greenhouse gases are attributable to buildings – imagine the impact if we could make buildings even more efficient.
As an industry we are taking responsibility for the things we can change. Be part of our transformation.
