Building Industry Materials Research
The Residential Builder Panel series, covers materials used in new residential buildings across Australia. Each year BIS Shrapnel uses this panel to update information on building materials and fittings used in residential dwellings. These reports are a continuation of an ongoing series spanning back over 20 years.
The home improvements market continues to be an increasingly important sector of the building industry. This report covers around 14 major areas which together provide a comprehensive picture of the market for additions, renovations, and dwelling improvements.
BIS Shrapnel is launching its first stand alone study of 'Building Materials in Non-Residential Building'. Previously included as part of the 'Building Materials and Fittings' reports of 2004, 2001, 1998 and earlier, this study will report on the size of the building materials market in non-residential building during 2006/07.
