Construction Sector Accord
The Construction Sector Accord (the accord) is a shared commitment from the government and the construction industry to work together to meet some of the key challenges facing the construction sector, including skills and labour shortages, unclear regulations, a lack of coordinated leadership, an uncertain pipeline of work and a culture of shifting risk.
The accord has a vision of a high-performing construction sector that supports the wellbeing of New Zealanders through safe and durable homes, buildings and infrastructure that are built by a productive capable, resilient and proud sector.
Te Tūāpapa Kura Kāinga - Ministry of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is part of the accord, which was developed by Ministers, government agencies and industry leaders.
Members of the accord have agreed to a shared set of shared goals.
A productive, value-driven and efficient construction sector that can produce more for each dollar spent.
A skilled and capable workforce that meets New Zealand’s growing housing and infrastructure needs.
Strong sustainable businesses with the capacity to innovate and adapt to change and disruption.
Restoring confidence, pride and reputation
A high-performing, transparent and trusted sector we can all be proud of.
Achieving the shared goals will deliver benefits such as:
- safe, healthy and durable homes, buildings and infrastructure that support the wellbeing of our communities
- safe, secure and rewarding careers for people working in the construction sector,
- a functioning and competitive market for customers in the construction industry
- sustainable, resilient and successful businesses in the construction industry
- a construction sector that supports the wellbeing of New Zealanders.
