Statistics

 
Led by the rebuild of Christchurch and a fast-growing Auckland, New Zealand’s construction industry is experiencing its busiest period in over 40 years, and structural steel is in high demand. Investment in innovative production methods and a modelling tool to match capacity and demand are backing this growth.

Today structural steel’s market share of the national multilevel construction market is more than 50%, and in Christchurch, due to its seismic performance, its share of the multi-level construction market has grown to almost 80%. This us up from virtually nil before the Canterbury earthquakes. The industry’s focus on innovation, particularly in steel fabrication, has driven this growth.
