Addressing the skills shortage in the construction sector is a key priority for this Government, says Minister for Building and Construction Jenny Salesa.
Building and Construction
The Government today committed to working with the Auckland Mayor’s Housing Taskforce aimed at ramping up the pace and scale of housing building in our largest city, Housing and Urban Development Minister Phil Twyford and Building and Construction Minister Jenny Salesa says.
Changes have been made to the $4.5million Unreinforced Masonry Building Securing Fund (URM Fund) in response to constraints building owners were facing while attempting to secure buildings.
The Government is making it easier for people to understand and apply best practice when designing and constructing buildings.
