Our first article this edition is around using built-up members in place of solid timber. This is becoming more and more common with fabricated products, but it may pay to know that it can be done on site too. This article provides some basic guidance on the subject, and you’ll be able to find more detailed information in NZS 3604:2011.
The second article for this edition builds on our last quantity-surveying and construction article. We focus on the design process and point out some of the benefits of having good quantity surveying input up front.
We have recently undertaken an assessment of the LBP scheme from a range of stakeholder perspectives. This work will inform some of our on-going policy work and allows us to make improvements where they are most needed. You can read the report on the LBP website. You’ll hear from us again in the form of a consultation before we make any changes to the Scheme settings.
We recently consulted on changes to the LBP scheme fees and levy. The new fees have been set by the Government, and you can read more about the changes on the LBP website.
Thanks for reading – you’ll hear from us again in the New Year.
