Big Build is our quarterly publication tracking legislative and regulatory reform and other developments affecting the construction and infrastructure sector.
Items in this issue include:
acceptance by MBIE that the retentions scheme needs some work
the impending (by 2023) creation of a Workforce Development Council for the construction and infrastructure sector
the overhaul of the Overseas Investment Act (Chapman Tripp’s assessment is that the changes are generally in the right direction)
new funding options to overcome the balance sheet constraints on councils, and new powers for Kāinga Ora to promote large scale public projects
a catch-up on where we are with the Upper North Island Supply Chain Strategy, and
the big price tag associated with making Wellington more resilient to a major earthquake.
