Workshop recommendations

David Kelly - Director Canterbury Rebuild & Recovery, Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment
The development of the workshop has been jointly led by industry and the Ministry. We can provide training and advice, helping builders to become successfully involved in repairing leaky homes. The workshops convey essential knowledge on some of the typical building failures associated with weathertightness and advice on how to price, plan and manage the repair projects.

Grant Florence - Chief Executive, Certified Builders Association of New Zealand 
I  strongly recommend this course to all builders undertaking or considering remediation work. The Remediation Workshop is a must for builders looking to engage in the complexities of this type of work.

Warwick Quinn - Chief Executive, Registered Master Builders Federation
I have recently attended the pilot for the Department’s new weathertight remediation course for builders and was thoroughly impressed. I can highly recommend this relevant, practical and eye-opening course and strongly urge our members considering this line of work to attend.
