Advocacy success

We continue to work closely with government and industry on a range of initiatives for positive change in the construction industry. We are also proud of the advocacy successes we have had in the past years to help bring positive change:

  • Changes to the Construction Contracts Amendments Bill which introduced protection for retentions held on contracts
  • Successfully supporting a Supreme Court hearing to protect contractors from untenable conditions from an Appeals Court ruling on Voidable Transactions
  • We worked with Standards NZ on the review of NZS 3910:2013 New Zealand standard conditions of contract for building and civil engineering construction
  • We worked with Master Builders to develop SA2017 Standard subcontract agreement
  • We helped establish the Construction Safety Council and later Construction Health and Safety NZ (CHASNZ)
