Property Council submission on H1 Implementation

On 13 June 2022, Property Council submitted on the Building Code Consultation – H1 Implementation.

Why this matters to our members

The building and construction sector is critical to New Zealand’s economy and given that the sector is facing several issues including record high inflation, and supply chain issues, it is crucial they are supported at this time.

Our view

As part of the Construction Sector Accord, we supported a six month extension to the transition period for adopting new insulation requirements for housing in Acceptable Solution H1/AS1 and Verification Method H1/VM1. A six-month delay would not only help alleviate some of the pressure in the short term but allow businesses to prioritise the most pressuring challenges as well as become more educated to the new standards.
