Build-to-Rent: An Opportunity for Engineered Wood and Commercial Builders
Shamubeel Eaqub, Economist, Sense Partners
House building is twice as big as non-residential. The way we build houses is about to change.
The big change needed in housing is to go from small scale development for owner-occupiers, to institutions who build for renters. This will be helped by policy changes that will allow significant intensification along transport corridors.
Build to rent is a common sector internationally and is just getting a foothold in New Zealand. As it grows, those with commercial and vertical building expertise will be best placed to build better homes with better materials and better methods.
This presentation will present the compelling opportunity to expand your business and contribute to solving the housing crisis.
