New RMBF CEO appointed

In this issue we meet the RMBF’s new chief executive Warwick Quinn. Mr Quinn has a background in the property sector, the challenges in which he describes as being not dissimilar to those facing the construction industry.


On top of that he has also spent time as a hands-on builder, which is sure to be of great value when taking up his new industry role.


Our cover story takes a look at RMBF company Stanley Group’s Mt Ruapehu chairlift project, which has been chosen as a Gold Reserve National Finalist in this year’s House of the Year competition.


And Minister of Building and Housing Shane Jones provides a frank account of what he feels he has achieved in his short time as Minister.


See if you think he’s done a reasonable job so far, and then record your vote in our on-line poll.
