Consentium is the only nationally accredited and registered non-Territorial Authority Building Consent Authority (BCA) in New Zealand. It is a standalone and independent division of Kāinga Ora – Homes and Communities, a Crown entity which focuses on delivering public housing and providing people with access to quality, affordable housing choices throughout New Zealand. Consentium provides building compliance services to Kāinga Ora Construction and Innovation division but sits apart from it and is overseen by a separate governance body.
Consentium provides Kāinga Ora with building compliance services, including consenting, inspecting, and certification. It ensures new state homes are of a high quality and meet or exceed New Zealand building standards in terms of design, materials, construction and connections to infrastructure. This will greatly extend the time the homes can meet New Zealand’s need for a diverse mix of public housing. By taking a national approach, Consentium is able to prioritise consents, enabling homes to be built faster and where they are needed most. More information on our scope of services can be found here.
Consentium BCA is committed to collaborating with Territorial Authorities to deliver high quality compliance services and to working together to build industry capability throughout New Zealand. The Consentium BCA team is made up of industry specialists who know how to deliver quality compliance services whilst also fostering a culture of continuous improvement.
