Each year the housing industry delivers around 160,000 new homes – every one of these new homes is built for someone to live in. At the same time, the industry works on tens of thousands of home renovation and home improvement projects to meet the specific needs of a home owner. Working with customers and home owners is a critical part of doing business and delivering a quality and compliant home.
The residential building industry has a long history of innovation in the development of building materials and products, yet navigating the approvals, codes and standards to allow these innovations to become part of today’s building practices can be difficult.
Practitioners also struggle to keep pace with the rate of change in legislation, regulation, building codes and standards across three levels of government.
The career opportunities across all facets of residential building are vast. While our history as a male dominated industry is real, the reality today is that women and men are participating actively across the industry. Women and men, particularly new industry entrants, need support to grow in confidence, build their future and take up the opportunities that exist in the residential building industry.
The reputation of the residential building industry comes from meeting the needs of the customer. On the whole, the industry delivers on this promise, while recognising that the processes are complex, that hand built homes have imperfections and that building a new home is not something people do every day.
HIA will focus on opportunities to build a credible and trusted residential building industry that is capable and committed to delivering the homes Australians need at a quality they expect.
