Every year BRANZ also invests the Building Research Levy in additional research as part of our vision to inspire the industry to provide better buildings for New Zealanders. These include: 

  • Distinct, stand-alone and other levy investment research.
  • Invest in the expertise within universities, Crown research Institutes and independent research providers
  • External providers who submit proposals that address priorities published in our research prospectus
  • Scholars and early-stage researchers pursuing innovative research. 
  • Out-of-cycle research which address urgent research needs.
