Building today’s new homes has become a complex business.
New building materials, new building techniques, constant changes to building codes and standards, all mean today’s home builder needs to know more and manage more moving parts than ever before. Staying informed is hard, staying ahead of the game is even harder.
Over the last five years a focus on building quality has emerged that has generated changes in building codes and standards. It is expected this pressure will continue over the next five years and that HIA will need to respond to ad hoc reforms as each state and territory seeks to solve similar problems in different ways.
Along with this, changing community expectation is also driving changes in the outcomes a new home will be expected to deliver. These changes may not necessarily be aligned with the needs of the new home buyer.
HIA will focus on creating and maintaining a building approvals regime that is nationally consistent and fit for purpose; a building system that recognises the pressure on industry practitioners to gain and maintain the skills necessary to build quality and compliant homes; and building standards that meet the expectations of home buyers.
