CEO departs

RMBF chief executive Pieter Burghout departs the organisation at the end of August and will leave it in unquestionably good shape.


Pieter writes his final column for Building Today in this issue, and ponders his 8-point plan for the future of the construction industry.


He will take up a new position as chief executive of BRANZ so will be fortunate enough to still be able to have a hand in seeing his plan come to fruition.

And more monthly news, views and opinions about issues affecting the construction industry in New Zealand are all featured in this issue.
