Positioning for opportunity in the NZ Home Building Sector

Positioning for opportunity in the NZ Home Building Sector

With the 2017 elections well and truly behind us and a NZ-First/Labour minority government in place, some relative certainty is returning to the housing construction market. The new government has committed to some major policy initiatives and among these are policies that will create new opportunities for new home builders.

Labour’s ambitious KiwiBuild policy commits to the construction of 10,000 affordable homes over 10 years. Affordable housing is classified as costing around $600,000 per dwelling.

To facilitate these construction and infrastructure commitments the new government is also set to review aspects of the Resource Management Act (RMA) with new spatial planning and enforcement provisions being suggested.

The Ardern government has flagged the establishment of a new urban development agency and a greater emphasis on public transport and light rail.

All this points toward a brighter future for those in the broader construction industry.

 

So is it boom times ahead for New Zealand’s home builders? While the sector continues to face challenges there’s no better time to position your building business to take advantage of these opportunities.

For motivated builders to reap these rewards will require an ability to adapt to changing circumstances and a real desire to succeed in a highly competititve environment.

How can you position your business to take advantage of these changes?
