BRANZ. Welcome to BRANZ



  Research Capability

Just over half of the projects funded by the Building Research Levy are progressed by BRANZ's specialist research teams and in-house experts in knowledge transfer. These teams focus on improving the capacity in New Zealand to provide buildings that are safer, healthier, warmer and more resilient. This is work that our teams hold authoritative knowledge on. It is work the industry and building occupiers have brought to our attention. It is work that helps to improve the quality of lives.
