BRANZ Facts is a new series of concise factsheets that extract the nuggets of information from BRANZ research and topical issues in the building industry. They are short and easy to read, and refer the reader to more detailed sources for further exploration.
Current topics cover the value of resilience and sustainability features in New Zealand housing, the seismic performance of non-structural components, including sustainability technologies in New Zealand houses, roof design, achieving good affordable rental homes and mid-rise buildings. Other topics will be regularly added.
BRANZ Facts are a quick way for all those involved in the construction industry to access key information about topical building issues and related BRANZ research.
