Building & Construction Sector specific COVID-19 communications

News from the


With Monday’s announcement by the Prime Minister that New Zealand is about to enter COVID-19 Alert Level 4 - Eliminate (as at 11.59pm, Wednesday 25 March), the NZIOB and our fellow construction and building associations believe that it is essential we develop a single source of reliable and timely information on COVID-19 and the ramifications for our sector. 

That source is the collaboration between the New Zealand Construction Industry Council (NZCIC) and Construction Health & Safety New Zealand (CHASNZ), with the NZIOB being a member of the former. The joint communication will serve as a conduit for construction practitioners to receive updates that specifically impact the companies and people that make up our sector. 

Today’s update follows Monday’s meeting of the Construction Sector Accord Steering Group, which along with industry leaders and government agency CEOs, was attended by the Minister of Construction and Building, Hon Jenny Salesa.
