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.
