CMS and RMBF cooking up a second serving


Future Proof Building and builder licensing is on the menu again as Lester Haycock from Construction Marketing Services (CMS) and Registered Master Builders Federation chief executive Pieter Burghout take the CMS roadshow around the country once more. 

The roadshow will visit Queenstown, Invercargill, Dunedin, Christchurch, Blenheim, Nelson, New Plymouth, Palmerston North, Wellington, and Auckland, with a full list of the proposed events being communicated to members shortly. 

The roadshow includes a range of future proofed building products to present what has been hailed as one of the best educational presentations to hit the regions. The invitation-only breakfast is open to architects, designers, builders, territorial authorities and developers in each region. ‘Incredible results’ “The results from the first leg of the roadshow journey were incredible,” Mr Haycock says. 

“Architects are creating special sections in their libraries as future proof recognised icon authorised products. “They are also requesting copies of the future proof DVD to lend to their clients prior to their design briefings, so that their clients are pre-educated on the importance of building to meet the lifestyle of the user verses the pocket of the developer or investor,” he says. 

“CMS has reports of many projects and housing companies now building to this new standard, as they understand the need to build a ‘better mouse trap to catch the mouse’,” he says. CMS and its partners will continue to invest in consumer education of Future Proof Building, and by the end of 2006 this investment will have exceeded $10 million dollars. Are you a member of the future proof professional education programme and ready to build to this standard?
