The Department of Building and Housing has launched a two-year campaign Build it Right aimed at improving the quality of building in New Zealand and increasing the confidence of consumers. The initiative will improve the productivity, efficiency and account- ability of the building sector in New Zealand. The first major change is the introduction of Restricted Building Work (RBW) on March 1 this year. This means most residential building work requiring a build- ing consent must be car- ried out by licensed building practitioners. Alison Geddes of the Department of Building and Housing sector capa- bility says the pro- gramme being intro- duced will raise standards while doing away with red tape. The first step has been to ensure we have enough licensed practitioners assessed within a range of competencies relating to their licence class. Only they will be able to carry out design and construc- tion work critical to the integrity of a building,'' Ms Geddes says. The programme will give consumers additional comfort that they're getting experi- enced building practitioners and a qual- ity job,'' she says. Six licence classes relate to restricted build- ing work -- designers, carpenters, external pla- sterers, brick and block layers, foundation specialists and roofers. Registered architects, gas-fitters and plumbers, as well as chartered pro- fessional engineers, who are registered with their own professional authorities, are treated as being licensed. Ms Geddes says New Zealand's future econ- omic prosperity depends on a strong and success- ful building and con- struction industry. The department and the industry have worked very hard to find initiatives that will allow the industry to flourish while offering consumers greater comfort and pro- tection. This programme of work reflects that.''
