BRANZ. Welcome to BRANZ



  Technical Evaluations & Testing

A key benefit for our clients is our knowledge of government policy and the influence that compliance regulations in New Zealand and Australia have on the respective building codes of each nation. BRANZ is in a particularly strong position to navigate the difficulties that construction compliance regulations can present.

With our sound technical base, multi-disciplinary team and technical excellence, we are able to demonstrate fitness for purpose through a range of services, including fire, structural, materials testing, and formal compliance schemes.
