what we do


New Zealand’s construction sector is booming and the choice of building products and systems has never been wider. But the long legacy of leaky buildings means the sector is also litigious. So if you want to stand out as a supplier, it needs to be for the right reasons. 

That’s where The Building Business (TBB) can help.  TBB is one of NZ's premier Building Regulatory Consultancies, independently certified to ISO 9001:2015.

We deliver innovative and market-ready regulatory solutions that help our clients meet both their obligations and their business goals. It’s an approach that turns compliance into a competitive advantage. Which means our clients get to focus on the important stuff - like increasing sales and standing out from competitors.

  • Clear, evidence-based analysis
