A brief overview of the priority work programmes within the MBIE Building System Performance branch.
Building Code Update Programme
The Building Code Update Programme helps ensure the effective management of the New Zealand Building Code and related documents. This programme of work includes updates to the Building Code regulations, Acceptable Solutions, Verification Methods and published guidance information.
Building for Climate Change Programme
The Building for Climate Change Programme is a long-term project aimed to deliver the Building and Construction Sectors' contribution to New Zealand's emissions reduction targets. This programme will influence the way we build our homes and workplaces and is responsible for guiding the sector through the transformation process.
Building Law Reform Programme
The Building Law Reform Programme is a phased programme aimed to lift the performance of the regulatory system and drive better outcomes for the sector and New Zealanders. The reform includes changes to the Building Amendments Bill and Occupational Regulation, in an effort to make the building system more efficient, lift the quality of building work, and provide fairer outcomes if things go wrong.
