Schedule 1 Works

What are Schedule 1 Works?

The New Zealand Building Code provides a list of building works that can be carried out without a building consent; this list is called Schedule 1. Although MBIE provides a fair amount of information online for these works, there is still a degree of confusion amongst both non-professionals and professionals carrying out these works. We think that there are a lot of gaps to fill in - especially on how to carry out these works. So we are keen to get a better understanding of this in order to help fill those gaps.
Before we launch into the nitty gritty, we have a few questions to ask you to help us head in the right direction. Below is a short survey to give us a better idea of what you think about Schedule 1 works.
