2023 is shaping up as a closely fought election contest. Cost of living pressures and the state of the economy are front and center in voters’ minds. The polls are tight. In this unfolding dynamic, Constructive 2023, to be held in Auckland on 30/31 August, is the preeminent forum to hear from political leaders about how their policies will address the issues facing the building and construction sector.  

Constructive 2023 is a year for action, it’s the year to ensure your voice is heard, and it’s the year to make a positive difference. 

As we enter the current downturn, addressing the boom/bust cycle that has impacted our sector for the past 50 years, has never been so important. The peaks and troughs of this cycle are much more extreme for construction than other sectors. We discuss the solutions that can help us avoid the extreme volatility. This will require bold action from Government, the sector, and individual businesses. Many in our sector have been through this cycle before. We share the actions that businesses can take now, to ensure they emerge stronger. 


With keynote addresses from government and opposition leaders, political experts, senior officials, international experts as well as vastly experienced practitioners from across the building and construction sector, we tackle the issues that matter most to you:

  • Smoothing the boom/bust cycle to address the housing deficit.
  • Building current and future workforce capability and capacity.
  • Improving productivity through RMA, consenting, and procurement reform.
  • Managing the impacts of climate change.

Constructive 2023 is a not-to-be missed opportunity for the sector to come together to hear about and discuss strategies for navigating the downcycle, how to keep and develop your workforce, and new approaches to building. We look at the opportunities to lift productivity, including consenting, RMA reform, and procurement. Our sector will also play a critical role in addressing emissions and waste. We will hear from the innovators who are driving change.
