Construction sector accord
Te Tūāpapa Kura Kāinga - Ministry of Housing and Urban Development is part of the Construction Sector Accord that was launched in April 2019 by the Prime Minister, Accord Ministers, and the industry Accord Development Group made up of 13 sector leaders from across industry and government.
The Accord created a platform for industry and government to work together to meet some of the key challenges facing the sector including skills and labour shortages, unclear regulations, a lack of coordinated leadership, an uncertain pipeline of work and a culture of shifting risk.
In the past, under Alert Level Three, construction businesses have started work again, but strict hygiene measures must be put in place – and office staff who can work from home should continue to do so.
