Digital Triplets: Construction Industry collaboration improving productivity through clarity and consistency  

Posted on Thursday 30 November, 2023

We commonly hear that the construction sector is fragmented and suffering from a lack of collaboration, however collaborating organisations are working hard to change that.

The New Zealand Construction Industry Council (NZCIC), the NZ Institute of Building (NZIOB), and Te Waihanga | NZ Infrastructure Commission are all leaders of change responding to the Construction Sector Accord’s Transformation Plan.

This month sees the launch of three guidelines that have all been revised and better digitised to improve productivity, mitigate and fairly allocate risk, and future proofing the built environment. These projects are the culmination of years of effort from across the sector, representing strong collaboration between Government and Industry groups.

Jane’s glass half full approach has driven change right through her organisation to focus on the greater social outcomes in everything they do, leading her to be described by her colleagues at Kāinga Ora as the “True North.”
