Empty shelves, labour shortages, and a booming sector
While our sector is in a building boom, we are also facing unprecedented disruption from shortages of skilled labour and key supplies. The issue is complex and will require both short-term solutions, as we navigate the current situation, as well as long-term planning to ensure a more sustainable and robust sector for New Zealand.
As a sector we are also grappling with how New Zealand responds to the significant issues of housing supply and affordability, sustainability and climate change and we are facing a period of major regulatory change. Constructive will discuss the impacts, on both what and how we build.
