Building Compliance Specialists

In the years leading up to 1991 which was the beginning of the introduction of the NZ Building Act all building works were controlled by building by laws. These were a set of prescriptive rules that were administered by the various councils throughout NZ.

In 1992 the NZ Building Act replaced these by laws and introduced a complete new set of rules and regulations that were based on a performance based building code.

This new regime is far more complex than the previous by laws and accordingly there is a lot more to understand and administer, there is also a lot more accountability for both building owners and people associated with both using buildings and involved in running and administering these buildings.
