The Auckland Atlas of Construction is a base resource for Auckland's construction sector.
It provides data on construction value-chain trends in the region, establishing a spatial and temporal baseline from which sector development progress can be identified and monitored. More about the atlas
The atlas set-up is simple and flexible so that it can be adjusted, expanded and detailed according to the needs of the sector.
Building Activity »
The construction sector produces and changes buildings and infrastructure, and the trends and distribution of building activity are key to capturing and understanding sector dynamics. Where are the main centres of activity? And what is the scale of production?

Trends in Industry Structure »
Location choice can be critical to business success because it influences transport costs. Is this true for parts of the construction industry and its supply chains? The atlas provides a first view of the dynamics in the sector's spatial layout over time for the last decade.

Each section provides structured access to a set of detailed information pages. Baseline information comes in three forms - maps, graphs and datasheets - available as downloadable PDF files.
The atlas can be viewed in all internet browsers (although Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Safari provide a better user experience) and on iPads and iPhones.
To accommodate a growing population, Auckland needs more buildings. The Auckland Plan sets the vision and ambitions for Auckland's built environment, and making the plan a reality relies on its local construction sector.
The city's ambitions for building production reach beyond business as usual and therefore require an industry response - not a simple thing for a sector that is highly fragmented and contains over 70 separate trade organisations and professional bodies, reflecting the tremendous diversity of skills, professions and trades that are needed to sustain and improve a metropolitan built environment.
The construction sector is local and responds to local challenges, so needs a local information framework to understand its performance - the Auckland Atlas of Construction.
Data and analysis
The atlas has been produced by statistical and geographical analysis of combined data from a range of sources.
Development of the atlas was funded by BRANZ from the Building Research Levy.
