Builders, Trades & Back Office Staff

Builders Base provides you and your teams with one place to easily find the support and information they need.  Find news, events, training and support, learn about new products, interact with peers, build your community and link through to other industry websites for specific/technical information.

Associations, Govt. & Suppliers

Builders Base is about collaboration. We are independent, inclusive and support all of NZ’s construction related associations and suppliers.

For suppliers of products and services it can be difficult to reach your target audience with multiple distribution channels and hundreds  of different websites available to promote your new product or important changes people need to know about now.

News, events, information and offers posted on Builders Base link directly back to the source, driving more traffic to the respective Associations, Government, Councils and suppliers to the industry.

For Associations, our aim is to amplify your message to a wider audience and help drive your membership so more of our builders and tradies can benefit from what your specific association offers.

With increased visibility across the industry, more opportunities to collaborate and work together are created, resulting in ways to better support the fantastic men and women who are the backbone of New Zealand construction.

If it’s going on in the construction industry,you’ll find it all here at Builders Base.

And if you are interested in being involved, we are always welcoming feedback and looking for contributors, stories, news, industry announcements, etc.
