Where is the New Zealand construction sector heading in the next 2-3 years?. 

BIS Shrapnel’s 14th annual New Zealand Building and Construction Forecasting Conference provides a forum for the presentation of our latest report Building and Construction in New Zealand 2016 – 2021

At the conference we will present a concise overview of major issues influencing building activity, including data and forecasts for building activity across a range of sectors out to 18 months. We will also present analysis of the economic environment and projections of the most likely scenario, including interest rates, inflation, government policy, demographic trends impacting underlying demand and approvals for residential and non-residential building by type, as well as analysis of roads/highways, utilities, airports, water and sewerage, ports and harbours.

Forecasts and information provided at the conference will be very insightful, of great value and will assist in formulating key business planning strategies and actions.
