A letter from the CEO of ITM The construction market is experiencing unprecedented demand in the post-2020 Covid environment. Together with supply chain issues, it is having a significant effect on the supply of materials to building merchants, including ITM. At the time of writing, the industry welcomed the move to Level 2 for areas outside of Auckland so that builders could get back onto construction sites. Unfortunately, the predominance of building materials being manufactured or distributed in the Auckland region has proved an issue for the restocking of all merchants throughout the rest of the country, while Auckland remained at Alert Level 4. The choice facing the Government for future lockdowns is simple. Either we allow Aucklandbased building materials manufacturers and importers to operate safely under Level 4, or we accept that our building sites will grind to a halt, causing further financial hardship to builders, and stopping the provision of much-needed housing, including the Government's own Kainga Ora projects. While we support the Government's health objectives in protecting our communities from infection, we believe that a balance with economic goals is required.

The negative projections were wrong It has certainly been an extraordinary period in the construction industry – from the projections of a 30% fall in residential consents forecast during the 2020 Level 4 Covid lockdown – to the unprecedented demand and frenetic activity that has become the new industry norm, just 12 months later. Residential consents for new builds and alterations have surged to levels not seen since the peaks of the mid-'70s. Commercial and industrial developments, after a slower start, have now also picked up substantially.

The perfect storm On the supply side, domestic timber processing is at maximum capacity, and, as has been seen earlier this year, any disruption to production causes downstream shortages or restrictions in supply. Add port congestion, Covid impacted offshore manufacturing facilities and raw material shortages into the mix, and we have a perfect storm leading to chronic shortages of many core building materials.

How long will this situation last? We can see that the forward order books of many of our customers, both large and small, are full. Group home builders are seeing significant increases in enquiries and conversions to sales. Independent builders are, in many instances, 3-4 years out from new project starts, and the rapidly increasing waitlist for social housing means the Government has at least a 10-year pipeline ahead. Further changes in the deductibility of interest tax rules for landlords have generated more demand for new builds. This trend is likely to continue with rental shortages evident in many centres. The combination of these factors leads us to believe that we are in for a prolonged period of sustained demand against a backdrop of limited domestic and global supply. With demand exceeding supply, the unfortunate consequences are increasing lead times, rationing of products and price increases from suppliers. Many building material manufacturers are managing excess demand by rationing allocations of products across the merchant channels. While none of us wants higher prices and the impact that has on affordability for homeowners, ITM and our manufacturing partners are at the mercy of the market – from both raw material and labour cost increases.

Price rises After a decade of relatively stable prices, the quantity and level of price changes seem like a shock, and we acknowledge the challenge this presents to you, with your customers. We are committed to keeping you informed of price rises and lead time changes as early as possible. Still, we ask that you engage early with your ITM store to plan your jobs, allowing sufficient time for the pre-ordering of materials to ensure minimal disruption to your build process. Right now is a time when relationships, loyalty and partnerships are critical and, therefore, at ITM, we are all working hard to see you right. We recognise that the ever-evolving state of our industry requires agility and timely communication from all parties. We will keep you up to date on ITM's position and any market updates relevant to you.

04 INDUSTRY OUTLOOK

Labour shortages pose a multiple threat In the 12 months ended July 2021, a total of 45,119 consents were issued for new dwellings – the highest number since records started in 1938. Such a high level was previously unthinkable. It's no wonder the building industry is struggling to keep up. Low interest rates increased consents The high level of consents is largely a response to the huge fall in mortgage interest rates over the past three years. The lowest fixed mortgage rate, the one-year rate, was over 4.5% at the start of 2017 and, at the time of writing, was 2.5% based on the average rate offered by the major banks. This represents a 44% fall in interest costs. Covid-19 turned out to be a positive for building because it added to the fall in interest rates. In addition to the direct boost to new housing demand from the fall in interest rates, there has been a second positive in the last year. Super low interest rates have contributed to a fall in the number of people per dwelling. This has so far helped insulate demand from the major slowdown in population growth caused by the international border being largely closed to migrants in March 2020.

The Wage Subsidy has been reinstated in response to the August 2021 Covid-19 outbreak and this time the Reserve Bank is behaving differently. It is concerned the unemployment rate has fallen below the level consistent with its inflation target, that I estimate to be around 4.35% (green line in chart above). The latest Covid-19 outbreak will disrupt things temporarily, but surging job ads just prior pointed to the unemployment rate falling more.

The OCR will go back up This has parallels with the experience in the mid-2000s, when the unemployment rate was last allowed to fall to a level that gave excessive bargaining power to employees. The resulting inflation problem required numerous OCR hikes to fix. The Reserve Bank has signalled in speeches by senior staff that it plans to start hiking the OCR as soon as the Covid-19 outbreak allows.

Labour shortages Most builders will be experiencing challenges attracting and retaining staff and face rising labour costs. Unfortunately, the only way the Reserve Bank can fix the problems caused by labour shortages is to hike the OCR enough to significantly slow economic growth, which will hurt demand for new housing.

Wage Subsidy The Reserve Bank had expected the unemployment rate to increase to as high as 9% last year because of economic fallout from the lockdown, and cut the OCR from 1% to 0.25% to help stimulate the housing market and economic growth. However, thanks largely to the Wage Subsidy, it only increased to 5.3% and has fallen to 4% this year, below the level before Covid-19 (see chart).

Auckland Council is becoming increasingly active in tackling the problem of construction waste and has discovered a staggering statistic: The waste from an average new house build equates to more than $31,000, if the materials were saved rather than sent to landfill. It’s an eye-watering amount, especially when you tally it up for the whole country. Going by residential building consents in 2020, that’s well over a billion dollars of building materials going to the dump every year. That waste could be reduced by by 70-90%, according to Auckland council senior waste planning advisor, Mark Roberts.

The biggest wasters The uncomfortable truth is that waste from construction is the biggest source of materials going to landfill.

Every new house build produces about 4.5 tonnes of waste, and it would take 30 years for a household putting out its kerbside bin once a week to generate the same waste. With a zero-waste goal in Auckland by 2040, Robert’s job is to find ways of eliminating construction and demolition waste. “In the Auckland area alone, builders are spending over a $100 million just on gate fees at landfills and transfer stations. That will go up now because waste levies have gone up. In an industry that is constrained by costs, and constrained by productivity pressures, it’s a lot of money that is literally being wasted.”

Builders aren’t to blame While the potential cost savings of reducing or recycling waste are a big motivator, Roberts says many builders are more environmentally aware than the facts suggest.

CONTINUE >>

It is more than double the total waste from all household collections in the Auckland region, and amounted to around 568,000 tonnes in the fiscal year 2018/2019.

05 MINIMISING WASTE

The money you’re throwing away: Over $30,000 per house


06 MINIMISING WASTE

“Visiting building sites in the last year or so, we’ve found that a lot of builders are acutely aware of the problem, and they find it… the best word I can think of is 'upsetting'. It’s something that is resonating with them, but they’re under such incredible pressure to get the job done, waste drops to the bottom of their to-do list. “One of the things I want to emphasise is that it’s not the builder's fault. Waste occurs across the full spectrum, from the moment a homeowner decides to do a development, until the keys are handed over on completion. “Builders are part of the equation, but they are working with the cards that are handed to them. We’ve been working with builders who wanted to take some action about the problem, but there is a lack of knowledge of what services are available.

What you can do right now Most residential construction waste is recyclable, including untreated timber, plasterboard, cardboard, metal, polystyrene, some plastics, some carpets, and paint. Check with your waste company, recycling facility, suppliers and contractors. Read the ITM guide on how to minimise construction waste: www.itm.co.nz/Trade-Services/Sustainable-Building

Itm buIldING GuIdE:

how to minimise construction waste

“There are options for materials to be taken back, product stewardship schemes, help with planning waste management up front before you start a project, and there are collectors in Auckland who do skip-free construction waste collection. “It’s a matter of bringing all the information and resources together in one place, so builders can access it easily.”

Help is on the way Councils all over the country are facing the same problems, each of them tackling issues in different ways. “We have a group virtual meeting with other councils every month to talk about the various initiatives that are been trialled, and what we’re aiming for is consistent messaging and a central resource. “I’ve seen the ITM waste management guide and it is an excellent starting point; what we’d like to see is this kind of information more widely distributed. A big part of the issue is awareness. “We are well down the track to helping establish a national website, a place where builders can go to pick up all information in one place, with links to local businesses and organisations that can help with recycling and reusing construction waste. “It’s a not a thing that a council can do. Councils can certainly help facilitate it, but it needs to be a building industry initiative, a national resource. “We hope to have something like that out there very soon and, most importantly, make it simple. Builders have more than enough forms and paperwork to deal with already.”

Design considerations Encourage designers and customers to use standard product dimensions (e.g. 600 or 1200mm increments, standard door and window sizes) and prefabricated products wherever possible to reduce onsite handling, reworking and offcuts.

Material estimates Provide detailed plans and instructions, so estimators and contractors can provide accurate material take-offs. If you notice an excess of waste materials for a particular product, then reduce the wastage allowance for material estimates.

Incentivise subcontractors Add contractual terms to incentivise subcontractors to minimise waste, such as making them responsible for the disposal of any waste, or preferential consideration if they follow your waste management plan.

Make a plan Discuss your waste management objectives with your building crew and appoint someone to make the plan and take charge of implementing it.


07

Skip management Some skip companies will take your mixed waste skip from your site and sort out the recyclable materials at material recovery facilities, which can save you considerable space, cost and time on site sorting recyclables.

Nelson, Christchurch: Waste Management services the Nelson and Christchurch areas. Offcuts are processed locally and used in a range of compost and agriculture products. Visit www.wastemanagement.co.nz. Queenstown: AllWaste (www.allwaste.co.nz) and Waste Management (www.wastemanagement.co.nz) service the greater Queenstown area.

Mixed waste recyclables can include untreated timber, plasterboard, metals, cardboard and plastic packaging (check with your skip bin provider). Some waste bin companies have lockable bins for commingled recyclable packaging waste, including plastics and polystyrene (including polythene film and synthetic builders wrap), cardboard and paper. Avoid skips on site until absolutely necessary and keep them away from public view or access. Use a recycling site sign which prominently displays ‘This Builder Recycles. NO UNAUTHORISED DUMPING’.

Pass it on Valuable or useful excess materials such as leftover paint, floor coverings, fixtures and fittings can be neatly stored for the homeowner’s future use. Alternatively, try selling excess reusable product on Trade Me or exchanging materials on Freecycle (www.freecycle.org) or Waste Exchange (www. nothrow.co.nz) or by using the free Civilshare app (www. civilshare.co.nz).

Lunch waste To avoid skip contamination, provide a dedicated rubbish bag for workers' lunch wrappers, food scraps, etc, and a recycling bin for bottles, cans, newspapers, magazines.

On-site grinding It is possible to grind up plasterboard and untreated timber waste, and apply it to the site before covering with topsoil. Different councils have different requirements, so you’ll need to check.

Plasterboard recycling Plasterboard collection and recycling services are well established in some areas, and many more are planned. Auckland: Green Gorilla operates throughout the greater Auckland area. Green Gorilla plasterboard recycling bags can be purchased from your ITM store and included as part of your GIB® Deliver To Site order. Visit www.greengorilla.co.nz for info.

Polystyrene EXPOL products are delivered to site with bags for collecting polystyrene waste. Email EXPOL or use the EXPOL Recycling app to arrange pick up. Email pickup@expol.co.nz.

Renos and demos A large volume of building waste ending up in landfills comes from renovations, refurbishment and demolition projects. Yet these are the very projects that have the greatest potential for recycling and reuse. Kitchen and bathroom units, plumbing, light fittings and important building components like trusses, timber and corrugated iron and steel can all be reused. Auckland Council has been working to adopt a system of deconstruction on their own sites, whereby buildings or facilities are carefully taken down, bit by bit, to recover materials so they can be re-used elsewhere. Over the last six years, a number of significant projects have been carried out in this manner, and the council has established a network of businesses and community groups seeking recyclable construction materials in some areas in Auckland.

In the third part of this series, we look at the period where we knew we had a real problem with weathertightness. The Report of the Overview Group on the Weathertightness of Buildings – better known as the Hunn report and named after the chairperson of the Group – was released by the Building Industry Authority (BIA) in the second half of 2002. The recommendations in that report were the catalyst for major changes in the way we build.

The Terms of Reference for the report The Group was established to look at the nature, extent and effects of the failures, possible inadequacies in the Building Code, and consenting and inspection processes. It also looked at products and materials, trade skills and responsibilities, potential deficiencies in and the administration of the Building Act and Regulations, and whether we were the following the purposes and principles of the Act.

Many recommendations for change The report included 20 recommendations. Several of these called for the BIA to do such things as:

• Issue public warnings about the risk of collapse of cantilevered decks supported by untreated timber.

• Assess and publicise the health risks associated with fungal decay. • Revise E2/AS1 - the External Moisture clause in the Building Code. • Work with the Building Officials Institute of New

Zealand (BOINZ) to look at the level of information required in building consent applications and to develop stronger inspection regimes.

• Review current product appraisal practices. • Take a more proactive stance to research within the industry.

Other recommendations for the building sector included the BIA:

• Looking at providing interpretation guidelines

for the Act, and determining the need for tertiary qualifications and continuing professional development programmes for inspectors.

• Looking at improving the definitions of the roles, responsibilities and obligations of all parties through building contracts.

• Working with the Building and Construction

Industry Training Organisation (BCITO) and appropriate sector groups to review the carpentry apprenticeship to ensure an appropriate balance of academic and practical knowledge.

• Improving accountability for the quality of

construction under our current performancebased system.

• Keeping the public and industries such as banking and insurance fully informed.

The report changed our industry All the recommendations in the report were acted upon to some extent, many of them creating very real changes to the way we regulate and build in this country. This includes the more highly qualified Building Consent Officers and more detailed site documents and inspection requirements we have today, along with the accreditation of Building Consent Authorities, changes to apprenticeship training and outcomes, a massive increase in the size of E2/AS1, and more detailed and readily available manufacturer’s instructions. CONTINUE >>

There was, however, another recommendation which resulted in arguably the biggest change to our industry since the introduction of the Building Act 1991:


• That the BIA in conjunction with the appropriate affected sector groups:

CODEWORDS

a) explore the issues involved in advocating the national registration of builders and building related trades, given the contents of this report and concerns expressed about the standards of some trade practices on-site; and b) support such advocacy if it is convinced of the benefits to the industry.

• That the BIA promotes debate on the issues of trade regulation, professional education and builder registration at the proposed executive forum.

The Building Act 2004 The Building Act 2004 was how many of the changes inspired by the Hunn Report were made, but it was Subpart 4 that introduced the beginnings of the LBP scheme. This said that ‘all restricted building work must be carried out or supervised by a licensed building practitioner’.

2. Kick-out flashings at wall and roof junctions The absence of a kick-out flashing allows water to flow behind the cladding (see Figures 2a and 2b).

The title of this 1979 Th’ Dudes song could be a mantra for the residential construction industry. Every year, homeowners spend significant amounts of time and money on house construction. For this investment, they expect, as a minimum, a building that keeps the water out long-term. The work of MBIE’s Weathertight Services Technical Team puts us in a good position to identify recurring areas of weathertightness failures. It is worth noting that most of these failures are for buildings between 10 and 30 years old and therefore not built in accordance with the current Acceptable Solutions of the New Zealand Building Code.

Figure 2a: No kick-out or diverter provision at the bottom end of the apron junction to a fibre-cement cladding.

The seven most common weathertightness failures To illustrate these failures, below are photos and descriptions from building assessor’s reports.

1. Membrane roofs/gutters, scuppers and decks These commonly show failures at joints, adherence to other materials or at upturns and downturns of membrane sheets (see Figure 1).

Figure 2b: Destructive testing confirms water ingress and timber damage.

3. Thresholds to decks The junctions between the walls, joinery, balustrades and decks are prone to water ingress due to inadequate threshold heights, folds and corners or cladding proximity to membranes (see Figures 3a and 3b).

Figure 1: Butyl rubber membrane over a small roof. Inadequate front edge installation with the corner cut, exposing the plywood substrate. Figure 3a


13 5) Joints and flashings in cladding

CODEWORDS

These are often inadequate allowing water ingress and damage particularly at horizontal and control joints (see Figure 5).

Figure 3b: Stucco plaster cladding and joinery close to a tiled deck. Joinery installation issues at the jamb. Minimal threshold separation allows water uptake into the uncoated, porous bottom edge of the stucco plaster and creates maintenance difficulties.

4. Parapets, balustrades and attachment points Water entry can cause structural damage to parapets and solid balustrades at either capping or gutter and deck levels due to lack of saddleflashings, cross fall, expansion joints and plan change direction. Damage to structure can also occur where open balustrades are fixed through membranes, solid balustrades and walls (see Figures 4a and 4b).

Figure 4a: Top fixed stainless-steel handrail penetrates an EIFS clad parapet. There are clear signs of water ingress around the penetration point with the coating cracks indicating moisture movement to the underlying timber framing.

Figure 5: Stucco plaster cladding over rigid backing. Incorrect control joint formation, without separation of mesh and plaster over the joint, leading to movement cracking and water ingress.

6) Joinery installation. Head, jamb and sill flashings fail to deflect water to the exterior or are non-existent (see Figures 6a and 6b).

Figure 6a: Texture-coated fibre-cement cladding. Window head flashings without stop-ends or other means of preventing water ingress. Coating and cladding sheets are in contact with the shoulder of the flashing which allows water uptake to the cladding edges by capillary action.

Figure 2: Red Stag Wood Solutions new $40+ million EWP plant in Rotorua

Cross Laminated Timber (CLT): faster, lighter and available A real challenge in the market at present is material availability and insufficient labour. The question is, what can the industry do to immediately resolve the availability of materials and increase the speed of construction?

The solution Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) is less commonly known in New Zealand, compared to other Engineered Wood Products (EWP) such as Glue Laminated Timber (GLT) and LVL. CLT has the advantage of being in sheet or panel format, perfectly suited for floor, wall, roof and stair applications. CLT allows for up to 450 m2 to be installed per hour(1) with a team of three builders, solving both the material and labour challenges currently facing the sector.

CLT is a mass timber panel made by gluing perpendicular layers of timber together (refer to Figure 1). Although CLT has been around since the 1990’s, the uptake in New Zealand has been slow as there has been no large-scale domestic producer.

A brand-new manufacturing plant The wait is now over, with Red Stag commissioning its new $40+ million EWP plant (Figure 2) in Rotorua in May 2021. The new plant incorporates a worldscale CLT plant. CLT is fundamentally changing the way buildings are designed, manufactured and constructed. The investment will help CLT become the backbone in traditional, mid and high-rise buildings. In addition to the CLT plant, Red Stag is in the process of expanding into New Zealand’s largest GLT plant making the facility New Zealand’s largest mass timber manufacturing site. In parallel, Red Stag is working expediently to offer more cost effective and consistent supply of new CLT lintels and beams, as well as traditional GL8+ beams perfect for the frame and truss sector and beyond.

No effect on structural timber supply It is important to note that CLT does not use SG8/ SG10 timber. Therefore, it does not reduce the available timber currently being supplied to the domestic construction sector.

Figure 1: CLT layer configuration (alternate perpendicular layers).

TIMBER

With demand at an all-time high for construction, how can the sector evolve to improve supply, speed of construction and support the environment?

TIMBER

CLT typically takes timber that did not quite make the SG8 grade (45 mm thick), removes defects (splits, large wane, large and loose knots, etc), finger joints it together and then planes it (typically down to 42 mm), ready for gluing and pressing into panels.

The benefits of Red Stag’s CLT are:

• Domestically supplied and available

within the same time frame as frames and trusses.

• Treated to New Zealand NZS3640 treatment standards: H1.2 Boron; H3.2 CCA. • Panel sizes up to 16.9 m long x 4.9 m wide x 0.42 m thick and anywhere in between. • Locally CNC machining available to precision cut, drill, rebate all requirements to the mm in factory.

Business Coach Daniel Fitzpatrick looks at four ways of thinking that will get you to the next level a lot faster. If you’re like most tradies and have a lot on your plate right now, it’s easy to forget about how your mindset impacts your success – and simply go through the motions every day, ticking off your long list of to-dos.

there were a few extras involved that were not allowed for in the quote, but it was just easier to carry on and deal with it later? In the end, your margins disappeared and it was too late to negotiate with the client because the job was finished.

You want to be making progress, but it feels like you're bogged down by what’s urgent – and not necessarily getting to what’s most important.

Taking total responsibility (even when it means having the hard client convos in the middle of a job) saves a whole lot of headaches later.

So, how can you ensure you’re on the right track and progressing towards where you want to be – such as running a thriving, growing company with an amazing team and reputation that is second-tonone (with plenty of space for regular family time and holidays!)?.

Another big one is taking complete responsibility for your financials. This means consistently being ahead of the game: Knowing exactly what’s coming in, what’s going out, and what’s left.

Start by understanding these four mindsets that separate successful business owners from the rest:

1. They take responsibility for the big picture Hal Elrod says, “The moment you accept total responsibility for EVERYTHING in your life is the day you claim the power to change ANYTHING in your life”.

Ever started a job and taken ownership but a few things got away on you? Like when you discovered

Yes, it’s a good time to be in the trades right now. But good times don’t necessarily lead to a better business. Even when you’ve got more work coming in than you can handle, you still need to be focused on building the fundamentals of a strong business. Ask yourself two important questions:

• What’s out of control right now? (e.g. cashflow –

there’s a whole lot of debtors you haven’t followed up and that’s why you’ve got no money).

• What are you letting coast by that you need to

get control of because it’s going to bite you in the future? (e.g. your foreman is being difficult).

If you can really get a handle on those loose ends, when you get to the end of the year, you’ll be much happier with the results.

It’s true. When you don’t take total responsibility for something in your business, then you’ve given up the power to change that thing. It’s unlikely to then go in the direction you want it to.

Four mindsets that separate successful business owners from the rest


18 BUSINESS ADVICE

2. They make financial decisions based on the ROI, not the cost Fact: Not all costs are the same. When you make a financial decision, it can either be seen through the lens of it being a cost or an investment. For example, implementing new project management software will cost time and money initially. But will save you time and improve margins and control in the long term. Therefore, just viewing it for its initial cost could hold you back from investing in something that would later benefit you. The more growth-focused approach is to analyse your financial decisions based on the ROI, the overall effect. You’ve got to think: For what I put in, am I getting a greater return? Making financial decisions in this way can save time and frustration, and play a great role in taking your business to the next level.

3. They fixate on their goals but are flexible in their approach

However, when it comes to nailing down the nittygritty of your business, you’ll run into a problem: You can’t read the label from within the jar. How often have you seen someone stuck on how something’s going to work, but then someone else has come over and almost immediately found the solution? As billionaire real-estate investor Gary Keller says, “Any time in your life you are hitting up against the ceiling of achievement, you’re missing a person”. It shouldn’t be a surprise that a different set of eyes sees different things. So, stop and think: How are you taking advantage of different eyes and minds in your business strategy? Do you have a different set of eyes on your financials? Have you got other minds working with you to help take your business to the next level? Having someone who you regularly sit down with to go over various aspects of your business will force you to show up and think strategically. Which will ultimately help you move forward and stay the course. So, take advantage of it!

Any significant goal will have curveballs on the way that may try to shunt you in a different direction. The winning attitude is to be firm and fixated on your goals – but also, to be flexible in how you achieve them!

Let’s wrap this up

Imagine a key staff member has left and you need to find a great replacement. It's hard to find staff right now. Thinking outside the box might mean training an existing team member up into the role or offering to pay moving costs to attract someone outside the region.

Remember: Take responsibility for the big picture. Make financial decisions based on the ROI rather than the cost. Be flexible in how you get to your goals. And don’t go it alone.

There are always going to be turns and bends in the pursuit of our goals. But it’s not an excuse to stop. Instead, it’s a reason to find a different way. As Ryan Holiday says, “Stop looking for angels. Start looking for angles”. Where are you currently stuck in your business? What isn’t working? Spinning your wheels and hoping things will improve might not be the best approach. Even if you’ve had success in the past, what’s gotten you to point A might not necessarily get you to point B.

The mindsets of business owners who succeed and those who don’t are very different. Make sure you can say you’re on the right side!

So, look for a different way. Find a new strategy. Create opportunities and get after the results you really want.

4. They don’t expect to have all the answers Tradies sometimes think there’s no task too big to handle if they just grind it out.

A lot of insurance is tied to contracts, so it’s critical you understand what’s in your contract and comply with the requirements in there. Even if you use a standard contract, things might change and you need to be on top of this, or you might end up in hot water.

INSURANCE

Are you doing everything your contract requires you to?

at the price agreed. It is the completion cover that banks are generally interested in when they require these guarantees as a condition of lending. For a commercial contract you may be required to provide a performance bond. These are common in large contracts but are becoming more common in medium sized jobs too. Banks, insurance companies and surety bond specialists can provide these.

Guarantees & bonds Contracts from building trade associations typically include a reference to their 10-year guarantee. A third-party guarantee such as these, gives homeowners an additional layer of protection if there's a problem and their builder is unwilling or unable to resolve it (usually because they have gone bust). Under the Building Act you must guarantee your own work anyway, so these 10-year guarantees are policies that only back-up your own warranty if you are not around to meet it yourself. They are also not insurance to cover your mistakes. You are still responsible and these guarantees will only step in once you aren’t able to meet your obligations yourself.

If your contract requires retentions, it may also allow you to provide a bond instead – known as a 'bond in lieu of retentions'. This can be a safer way to meet your defects liability obligations, as you have no outstanding cash sitting with your principal, as the bond simply expires once the defects period ends. When arranging a bond, it is important it meets the conditions of the contract. Most contracts will include the specific form of the bond wording required, and the insurer or bond surety will usually defer to this. Contracts may also reference a 'principal’s bond'. If the contractor wants to guarantee that they will be paid for work done, they can demand the principal provides a bond to this effect.

If your contract says you will provide a 10-year guarantee, then that becomes a legal obligation on you. There have been numerous stories in the media over the years (and plenty more that don’t make it to the news) where a homeowner was promised a 10year guarantee, but their builder never applied for it. These guarantees come in two parts:

Contract works insurance

You must make sure that if your client’s require completion cover, then the guarantee you provide includes this, otherwise you may be in breach of contract. This is generally the most important part as it guarantees that their job will be completed

Who arranges the contract works insurance (also sometimes called builders risk) is usually specified in the contract. If it says the builder is responsible for it, then it is up to you to arrange it. Standard practice is that builders will be required to arrange contract works cover when the job is a full contract new

INSURANCE

build. For jobs like alterations and renovations, which involve work to an existing structure (where there is already an insurer for that building), the building owner is usually responsible, in the contract, for arranging this insurance. The same goes if the job is labour only. If the owner is responsible, we strongly recommend that you see a copy of the policy before you start work (to make sure it has been correctly arranged). It could cause you an issue if they haven’t arranged it, even though it was not your responsibility, as you are jointly insured under the policy. Without one in place, you could be held liable for any damage you are responsible for. This includes ensuring there is cover for damage to the existing structure caused by the performance of the building work.

neighbour held them responsible for damage to their property, resulting from your building activity). If a principal (or their lawyer) asks for their name to be added to your public liability policy, that usually means they don’t understand how liability insurance works. Insurers generally won’t add principals to contractors’ public liability policies because they already include that vicarious liability clause.

Another important consideration is the 'additional items' that are often specified. These include allowances for things like professional fees, demolition and removal of debris, and escalation in costs. If the contract specifies amounts for these, then you must make sure the contract works insurance matches them.

Professional indemnity insurance Contracts may also require the contractor to hold professional indemnity insurance. This is common if the job involves an element of design on the part of the contractor, such as with 'design & build'. There are also many situations where the builder is required to engage the services of other professionals as subcontractors (like surveyors or engineers), where there is a professional indemnity exposure to the contractor if that professional stuffs up.

Public liability insurance Make sure that, if the contract says you will hold $5m cover (or any other amount), you have that amount. Policy limits can be increased for specific contracts if required. Note that public liability policies automatically cover your principal for their 'vicarious liability'. This means liability they have for your actions (e.g. if a

If the contract requires you to have this, take note of the conditions and ensure these are met by your professional indemnity insurance. Professional indemnity policies are of a type called 'claims made'. This means that as well as having the cover when you did the job, the policy has to be in place continuously up until the time the claim is made against you, which could be many years after the project is completed. The contract will probably require you to hold it for a minimum period after completion of the project. Some contracts refer to 6 years, but we would recommend at least 10 years from when a CCC is achieved.

"If a vehicle causes damage to the works (or nearby property), it is the vehicle’s insurance policy that needs to pay." As a side note, in general terms, if a piece of equipment that is road registered is being used for its specialised purpose (e.g. a crane or pump truck), then damage it does at that time would be covered by public liability insurance. If it is being driven, then it would be covered by the vehicle's third party insurance.

In a nutshell Contractor’s plant These conditions typically refer to 'critical pieces' or items over a specific value. It is designed to ensure that a project isn’t delayed because an important piece of equipment is damaged and not insured (and the contractor can’t afford to replace it), and this substantially delays the project. It doesn’t mean you need to have tools insurance for your small items (although you should!).

If you’ve got through this article, then you can get through a contract! It might seem like a drag and a waste of time, and be hard to decipher (I’m talking about contracts, hopefully not this article) but it is absolutely critical if something goes wrong, that you have properly complied with the contract terms. A good insurance broker will assist you to meet your insurance (and guarantee and bond) obligations within your contract and can complete any contract schedules necessary or supply certificates.

by Ben Rickard Builtin Insurance Advisor

Motor vehicle third party liability This is required in contracts because if a vehicle causes damage to the works (or nearby property), it is the vehicle’s insurance policy that needs to pay (licensed, registered vehicles aren’t covered by public liability insurance). The contractor must make sure all vehicles they are responsible for (including workers and subbies) are insured. Limits are often specified, and most commercial vehicle policies

Small boats = big adventures

FISHING

The first boat I owned was a small boat, very small. It was a pram dinghy that had washed up on the beach in my hometown of Weymouth. It may have been small, but that boat allowed me to have some big adventures. Always hunting for fish When I was a young lad, if I didn’t have rugby training or my paper-run after school, I’d do the rounds of the commercial fishers’ yards and I’d work for free, packing fish. If there were no boats in, I’d go to the boat ramp; if it was low tide, I’d hunt eels in the muddy creek next to the ramp; if it was high tide, I’d fish off the wharf.

Finders, keepers On this particular eel hunting day, I spotted a dinghy under the wharf, half full of water with visible cracks and holes. Immediately I saw an opportunity, so I ran home to get Dad so he could bring the trailer and we could claim the dinghy. He did come down, but instead of loading it on the trailer, we pulled it up above the high tide mark and tied it to a post. My father explained, “If no one claims it in a week, we can take it home and fix it”. So, every day for a week I ran from school to the wharf to check it was still

there, and on the seventh day I held my dad to his word, and we collected the boat. Dad meticulously repaired the boat, it seemed to take forever. So, by the time it got its final coat of paint, I had purchased some old oars and salvaged an old trolley with two sketchy wheels. It was a slog to get it to the beach, but I didn’t care. I could now go fishing in a boat and didn’t have to rely on anyone else. My mind was constantly full of plans for fishing adventures. I was ten years old, and my paper-run money eventually funded a 2hp outboard and then progressively bigger boats, as my plans for more ambitious fishing adventures grew.

Catching big fish from a small boat I expect it’s normal to keep getting bigger boats that allow more gear, more features, more range and, as you get older, more comfort. I’ve followed this trend with my bigger boats, but I’ve always kept a small boat too. Small boats offer better economy, easy

My current small boat, Te Honky, is an awesome 1450 Stabicraft, and you’ll see some of those adventures in this current series of ITM Fishing, plus online at www.ultimatefishing.tv. And just the other day, my kids took it out by themselves while I was busy planting trees (yes, I know they should have been helping old dad!). I was proud to see them head off and have so much fun together. They let the big ones go and still brought home a decent feed.

Coming up in October Watch every Sunday, 5.30 pm on Three. Catch up on ThreeNow.

Episode 9. The Whole Fish All sorts of people go fishing for all sorts of reasons, and there’s so many ways you can coo k a fish. Matt is joined by a fish-head loving fan, Dean Barker, and chef Ben Bayly. Matt’s challenge is to put the guys on to the fish they want to catch. The Hauraki Gulf proves to be a great food basket, and we get to see how to optimise every bit of the kingfish and snapper.

Episode 10. The Fish of a Lifetime... Twice! Long-time ITM Fishing camera operator ‘Cameraman Dan’ loves his fishing. And when there is enough footage in the can, he’ll sometimes get the opportunity to swap the camera for the fishing rod. On two occasions it’s resulted in two of the greatest fish Matt has ever seen, and a 17-hour fight with a monster that Matt describes as, ‘the one he’s waited a lifetime for.’

Episode 11. Fish and Hunt – Fill the Freezer and the Soul After being in lockdown, Matt gets in his Hilux and heads down country into wide-open spaces. Rods and rifles are packed in the back and Matt tries some new things beyond his usual skill set. Some exciting hunting and incredibly visual fly-fishing result in Matt calling this, the best trip of the year!

Episode 12. Bait vs Lures

A young Matt with a 525lb stingray caught in one of his first dinghies.

They didn’t drag a patched-up dinghy a kilometre each way to the beach on a rickety trolley but, hey, times have changed. I was just pleased to see them out there enjoying the freedom and fun of their first boat fishing trip together, and it was nice to have a fresh fish meal caught and prepared by my children. Till next time, keep ‘em tight

There is nothing absolute about fishing. What works one day may not work the next, and there are so many questions to be answered. In this 12-hour fishing experiment, Matt and his crew fish the incoming tide and outgoing tide, and record the results of baits and lures in each 2-hour stretch of the tide. There’s plenty of fish caught and the results are fascinating.

Episode 13. The Mongrel Pig Dogs Matt’s fishing team, The Mongrel Pig Dogs, are back to defend their title in the annual ITM Fishing Comp. The new blood to the team this year is former All Black hardman Richard Loe, who bolsters the mongrel in the team. The comp requires a broad range of fish to be caught, and the team has a disastrous start, but a late surge of frantic fishing brings them back into the running, with a grandstand finish coming down to the last seconds.

FISHING

launching and easy cleaning; but if I’m honest, it’s the buzz I get from catching big fish from a small boat that is the real attraction. I’ve done surfboard and kayak marlin and the like, but they were more fishing stunts to test myself, not the same as a well set up, safe small boat that amplifies the experience of fishing, but isn’t ridiculous.

MOTORSPORT

Supercar legend 100% gutted to miss out on Kiwi drive It’s been a tough year for all drivers in the Repco Supercars Championship but, for Fabian Coulthard, recent events have been gut wrenching. When the plug was pulled on the ITM Auckland SuperSprint, it was a double whammy. “I haven’t seen my mum or dad who live in Auckland for nearly two years. My fiancé Becky and I have twins who are about to turn four, and this will be the second year running when my parents haven’t been there to celebrate their birthday.

“You walk into the racetrack and people give you a pat on the back, wish you good luck and then, afterwards, they say ‘well done, great race’, stuff like that. We get a little bit of that here in Australia, but nothing like the support we get back home.”

“One of them used to come over every three months when the kids were first born, but they haven’t been in ages. This Covid thing is pretty tough on everyone, especially families.”

Despite the current disruption to the Championship, Fabian reckons there have been some upsides.

Missing the home crowd One of three Kiwis competing in the Repco Supercars Championship, Fabian is based in Queensland and was “100% gutted” when the NZ leg of the series was called off. “It’s the one time of the year for us to race in front of my home crowd. It’s the simple things you notice.

“It’s quite good that we’ve got a break at the moment to get on top of our car, go over it with a fine-tooth comb, making sure it’s going to be 100% good for the remainder of the year. “Also, we’ve been renovating our place in the Sunshine Coast, and we’ve been able to finish that. It turned out really well, definitely a highlight of the year.”


You never know With recent COVID-19 outbreaks in New South Wales and Victoria, there is much uncertainly about Supercar events for the remainder of the year. “It’s the second year of it now, so I guess we’re all well-rehearsed – we always have a bag packed ready to go at the drop of a hat. “But there’s always a chance we’ll be away for much longer than planned, caught out by a snap lockdown, and, as a father of twins, I understand what pressure that puts on Becky to mind the fort. “I’m lucky I have a supportive fiancé; she’s done it once before last year working through COVID-19 and will probably have to do it again at some point this year. “So, it would be great to have my parents around for support. We miss that. We miss them. But I guess it’s the same for thousands of other families back home and in Australia.”

Latest move a major coup A stand-out performer from the day he first laid hands on a steering wheel, Fabian starting out in karting in Auckland at aged 6. After winning a string

of NZ karting titles, he graduated to the NZ Formula Vee Scholarship and finished runner-up aged just 12. In 2002, he competed in his first Australian race at the Grand Prix in Melbourne where he clean swept the Formula Ford support races. He’s had 443 Supercars race starts (15th all-time) and 202 round starts (18th all-time), along with 16 Bathurst 1000 appearances finishing 3rd in 2017 and 4th in 2020. Early this year, Fabian joined Team Sydney as team leader in what the media described as 'a major coup for the Sydney-based team', which is run by former Bathurst winner Jono Webb. Fabian explains, “When Roger Penske left Supercars in Australia, there wasn’t an opportunity for me in a full-time sense. I was offered a co-drive for the Enduro, but one race a year didn’t excite me. “For me, the Team Sydney thing is the perfect fit. I’ve raced pretty much every weekend since I was six years old, and that’s what excites me.”

What is hi-vis?

SAFETY

Hi-vis is a form of Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) designed to minimise the risk of personal injury by making the wearers visible.

Otherwise, it cannot be considered a hi-vis colour, because it is not easily visible for some people with a specific type of colour-blindness.

Class types Class D – (Daytime use) made from fluorescent or other high visibility materials, are designed for daytime use. They are intended only for use in workplaces where lighting levels are good, and no work is done outside of daylight hours.

The New Zealand legislation has standards around the criteria that hi-vis needs to meet, the types of hi-vis available, and when hi-vis should be worn. As a person conducting a business or undertaking (PCBU), you must manage the risks associated with your workplace activities and, in doing so, follow a process to control those risks. If you cannot eliminate a risk, you must implement measures to reduce the level of risk, provide training to workers, and provide PPE – which can include hi-vis. Protective clothing is one of many control measures used to mitigate risk, however, it is the ‘last line of defense’, and all other reasonably practicable control measures should be in place first before relying on protective clothing. It is up to the PCBU if hi-vis clothing is a control that will be implemented on-site. However, we do recommend that it should always be worn around moving vehicles, plant and machinery.

Class D/N – (Day and nighttime use) These garments combine fluorescent or other high visibility background materials with strips of reflective tape, making them suitable for day and night use, or for work areas where there are low light levels.

Class N – (Night-time use) designed and only suitable for night use. The colour of the garment is irrelevant as only the reflective tape will be visible at night.

Maintaining hi-vis It is important that the correct hi-vis is selected and used correctly. Your workers should know:

• When using hi-vis is required. • How to wear it correctly, and that the zippers/ velcro need to be done up securely. • Be of a suitable fit and not interfere with normal movement. • Be compatible with any other PPE requirements. • Know when to request a replacement due to damage/wear and tear.

Types of hi-vis There are many types of hi-vis clothing available in New Zealand, and it is important to understand the different types of hi-vis, what is appropriate for your workplace, and ensure that you supply hivis that meets the standards. The only two hi-vis colours acceptable in NZ are yellow and red-orange. Red is only allowed if it is in the orange spectrum.

Hi-vis should be maintained to ensure that it remains effective. Over time, the materials can fade which will affect the performance of the tape and fabric. It should be regularly checked for wear and tear, fading, and ensure that there are no additional fabrics, logos, or pockets impacting the functionality of the hi-vis in accordance with the standards AS/NZS 4602 and AS/NZS 1906.4.


NZCB announces the appointment of Ian Chamberlain as its new Board Chair, as well as the appointment of two new Independent Directors. A builder for more than 37 years, Ian Chamberlain has stepped up to the role of Chair from being Vice Chair over the past year, providing continuity in the governance of the Association, alongside the other

three Member Builders on the Board. The two new Independent Directors are former Ministry of Housing and Department of Building & Housing Chief Executive and now professional director, Katrina Bach, and Chartered Accountant and financial advisory consultant, Andrée Atkinson. Andrée, is the Advisory Director in Atkinson Consulting Ltd and a member of Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand. She has had significant experience on client advisory boards and not-for-profit boards, and is currently Chairperson of the Youthtown Foundation and North Shore Events Centre Boards. Katrina was Chief Executive of the Department of Building & Housing for nearly a decade prior to its merger with MBIE in 2012 and, before that, Chief Executive of the Ministry of Housing. A member of the Institute of Directors, she is currently a Board Member of CCS Disability Action and has held Board and Chairperson roles for several Crown entities. The new appointments follow former NZCB Chair Kevin Sceats’ completion of his term as Independent Director. Mr Sceats remains Chair of the Halo Guarantees Ltd Board, which oversees NZCB’s Halo 10-Year Residential Guarantee.
