We are delivering ever increasing numbers of new state homes and either replacing or retrofitting a significant portion of our existing, aging housing portfolio. We are focused on improving the efficiency and effectiveness of residential construction in New Zealand, beginning with our own performance.

This document, Building Momentum - our construction plan for future homes [PDF, 4.9 MB], outlines how we will do that while working with the broader construction industry to improve the way state housing is delivered throughout the country. It’s a new way of thinking and building - alongside the industry.

Building Momentum events and webinars

Building Momentum was created as a means of collaborating with the industry to achieve the rising build targets set for Kāinga Ora for new public and supported housing. The framework was developed with and for the industry, so the Building Momentum team hosts regular outreach events to ensure our stakeholders see what’s being achieved under the plan.

Our Building Momentum webinar series aims to provide an insightful and engaging way to share some of our key construction initiatives, progress and insights with the industry.

Next event - Buildings for Climate Action: Delivering on the Opportunity

For New Zealand to meet its emissions reduction ambitions, significant changes are needed in both what and how we are building our homes, communities and neighbourhoods. These changes also have the potential to deliver significant benefits for wellbeing, ecosystem regeneration and wider climate resilience.
