Kia ora koutou,
Further to my email this afternoon, here
is more information on the Government's announcement today on the manufacturing
of building products during Alert Level 4 from the Construction Sector Accord.
Today the Government announced some building
product manufacturing will be able to take place in Auckland during Alert Level
4, to support continued residential construction activity across New Zealand.
As a result
of these decisions, the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE)
will be facilitating a process to enable Auckland-based building product
manufacturers to submit their expressions of interest to Ministers to continue
operation under Alert Level 4.
will be expecting a high degree of evidence to support these submissions. This
may include evidence of how the building products are a critical component of
residential construction, evidence of there being limited building product
supply in New Zealand, and evidence of health and safety measures in place to
minimise the risk of COVID-19 transmission.
will need to be undertaken with the minimum number of staff safely required and
under Alert Level 4 rules.
provide more information on the process tomorrow.
He waka eke
