  Construction of New Residential Buildings

Residential.gifThis page of the atlas contains data on construction of new residential buildings, encompassing greenfield, in-fill and brownfield development and redevelopment of houses, apartments and flats.

The baseline figures in these graphs and maps have been produced by statistical and geographical analysis of industrial demography data provided by Statistics New Zealand.

Number of consents 2000-2012
This graph shows a time series of the annual number of building consents that were issued in the Auckland region, which is an indicator for building activity in the region.

Average value per consent 2000-2012
The average value per building consents provides an indication of the typical financial scale of building projects in this category. The numbers correspond to the recorded values and are therefore not corrected for inflation. Annual increase in the average value can be due to rising costs as well as increasing building size.

Number of consents 2007, 2009, 2011
The numbers of building consents issued are grouped according to the distance from Auckland's central business district (CBD). Building activity in this category is not evenly distributed over the region. Most activity is confined to the urban areas within a range of 25 kilometres. The changes in consent count indicate rises or decreases in building activity.

Average value per consent 2007, 2009, 2011
The type and scale of building projects is location dependent. The average value of building consents in relation to their distance from the CBD provides an indication of the strength of this location dependency for the financial size of the project.

Average floor area per consent 2007, 2009, 2011
The nature and size of building projects is location and context dependent. The average floor area of consented building projects in relation to their distance from the CBD provides an indication of the physical scale of projects in this category over Auckland's range of built environments.

Average cost per unit floor area 2007, 2009, 2011
The average cost per unit floor area provides a price indicator that is independent from the building size. Annual change in this indicator is sensitive to increases in material and building cost and also to changes in demand for construction types and technological innovation. This urban/rural profile looks at whether distance to the CBD has an influence on costs. Cost can be affected by distance due to the possibility of higher logistics and operating costs in dense urban environments or by spatial segregation of market preferences.

Travel trends by number of consents 2006-2011
Trends in average distance of a building consent from the CBD show that Auckland's population is growing. Growth can be accommodated in three ways - building up, building out or building for more intensified use. An increase in the average distance of a building consent from the CBD is an indicator of urban sprawl.

Travel trends by value of consents 2006-2011
The average distance of consented dollars for construction in relation to Auckland's CBD can be different to the average distance of projects, due to the changing nature and scale of construction projects in different urban and non-urban environments. This is an indicator of investment sprawl.

Consent count density
Consent count density is an indicator for building activity per square kilometre and is useful for identifying building activity hot spots. of apparent large-scale development. The scale of building activity in rural centres is identifiable because of the smaller size of area units.

Consent count
The number of building consents per area unit is shown for 2-year periods. Urban area units are smaller than rural area units to compensate for the difference in population density so the count is reasonably balanced over the region. Areas with high building activity per head are easily distinguished, and building activity changes over time are traceable through the differences between maps.

Average cost per unit floor area
The cost of building projects scales with the physical size of building projects. The average cost per unit floor area provides a price indicator that is independent from building size. Annual changes in the indicator are sensitive to increases in materials and building costs as well as changing demand in construction types and technological innovation. The map series puts this in a time-dependent spatial context specific for the Auckland region.
