BRANZ has a specialist Economics and Strategy team that works with a number of subsectors of the building industry, government agencies, manufacturers and retailers to provide meaningful and practical advice and analysis.

Many people don’t think of words like 'economics' or even 'strategy' applying to their business or organisation, but we help people understand practical things like:

  • how to monitor how well your building industry business is performing
  • what new homeowners expect from their builder
  • what changes in government policy mean for the building industry
  • how designers, manufacturers and retailers can work together to support better-quality building
  • the value of particular products in improving building quality
  • the size of the market for a new or existing product
  • trends in the building industry and what that means for smaller and bigger businesses
  • expected demand for new construction projects and the impact of things like affordability and greater urban density.

If you have a building-related question, we may well have looked at this question in the past or may be able to help you answer it.
