Identifying building system needs

BRANZ identifies emerging information needs through surveys and by engaging with industry groups, government agencies and the research community. We then prioritise our work based on these needs.

Industry insights survey

This significant longitudinal research programme provides a unique ‘moment in time’ snapshot of the industry each year, and also offers important insights into the history of the industry over 20 years.

The survey is distributed about every 2 years and aims to understand areas where information and research might be required.

Working with industry, government and the wider building system

In addition to the industry insights survey, BRANZ gets a comprehensive view of the issues affecting the building industry by working with:

  • industry groups
  • government agencies
  • building research providers.

We also monitor trends in the international building community. Input from these groups helps to inform our investment priorities.
