Connecting – BRANZ’s Annual Review 20/21

In our Annual Review we reflect each year on what we have achieved in all our work across research, consultancy services, knowledge dissemination and systems transformation.

In this year's annual review we share stories that reflect the work we’ve done, what we’ve learned and shared with the industry and the value of connecting in myriad ways:

• Through learning
As a science-led organisation, learning is in our DNA. T his core capability served us well over the past year as we developed new ways of connecting and working with and serving the industry while continuing to meet the needs of our clients and partners.

Through working together
We have always understood that achieving a better building system in Aotearoa New Zealand is a team effort, requiring all building system players to work together. Our relationships within and beyond the industry are treasured as they are the lifeblood of our mission.

• Through finding solutions
Finding the connections between complex problems and evidence-based solutions is BRANZ’s raison d’être. Each year, our research continues to make a difference to the lives of New Zealanders.

• Through investing

One of the key strengths of BRANZ is our ability to invest in thinking, research and action that will improve the built environment. We have a dual focus on both the here and now and what’s coming down the track so we can share our insights and help prepare the industry for change.

Here are some of the stories from 20/21 we want to share with you.
