The Building Business

Louise is an experienced policy analyst who has developed over the years expert practical knowledge in the application of the Building Regulatory framework. Since she first began working in this area in 2002 she has been involved in some notable firsts including; authored the first report to Auckland City Council on the leaky building issue; part of the Auckland City Council team to finalise the first 200 leaky building claims; the first to apply for a determination around compliance of faced fixed claddings; contracted to MBIE to provide the first sector workshops introducing Codemark; the first to assist a client to achieve a pure building design Codemark and the first to recognise that the building regulatory framework can be used as a business tool. Like any person offering innovative business solutions, it required hard work, knowledge and determination.
