The New Zealand Construction Industry Council (CIC) is a not-for-profit industry association of associations in the building and construction, design and property sectors. It is the collaborative voice of the built environment industry in New Zealand and operates at the interface between government (central and local) and industry.
CIC Members are also not-for-profit organisations and peak bodies for professions involved in the delivery of our built environment — designers and specifiers (architects, designers, engineers etc.), contractors and suppliers (manufacturers, distributors, contractors, builders etc.) and a range of other building professionals (compliance, research, surveyors, developers etc.). See full Member list below.
The CIC is a collaborative group for information, networking, research and advocacy towards a better built environment for all New Zealanders.An Executive Council leads the proactive strategy and a wider General Council informs and connects.
The CIC interacts with users of the built environment through the media and through CIC Members.
