Housing Matters - free breakfast session!
Successful strategies to survive the slow down
Friday 21 October, 8am-10.30am
Slowing down of post-quake construction in Christchurch may be imminent; signs of slowdown have already been noticed in the sector. What’s the best way to survive these boom-bust cycles? How can businesses consolidate and grow in difficult times? What are others doing to find solutions?
Come along to this free Housing Matters breakfast session to explore ideas and strategies to manage the recovery slowdown. The session covers:
- An overview of the latest BRANZ Levy-funded research into strategies to survive the construction sector slowdown.
- MBIE and BRANZ discuss boom bust cycles in construction and how they apply to Christchurch
- How the Superhome Movement is differentiating itself through quality and whole-of-life value, and how collaboration may help the sector pull through.
- An open discussion, led by a panel of experts, on ideas and solutions for the Christchurch construction sector post recovery.
