Passion and Commitment to the Industry
Passion and Commitment to the Industry

CSG members see the building and construction industry as a vital contributor to everyday New Zealanders’ sense of individual prosperity, community and national pride. We are inspired by what can be accomplished with a developer’s dream, architect’s vision, and a builder’s competence. With many of its members holding life-long careers within the industry, CSG is dedicated to energetically helping this industry to provide even more benefit to New Zealand.


Professionalism and Independence
Professionalism and Independence

The team at CSG will live up to the professional standards they expect in their own organisations by exercising their best judgment on viewpoints, strategies and when crafting work streams. We will also take positions independent of the organisations and roles we hold, looking for industry benefits rather than positives for specific sectors or companies.


Integrity, Openness and Accountability
Integrity, Openness and Accountability

CSG has a clear mandate to provide direction to industry and government and we will take this mandate seriously. We will operate to the highest of ethical standards. CSG will be clear about its outputs, taking accountability for the content of its thinking and timeliness of delivery. CSG sees accountability as a something which needs to be embraced and ingrained within our industry and we will model this behaviour.

When it comes to achieving higher performance and professionalism in an industry, it takes all kinds; so everyone counts. CSG members are a diverse group, coming from many different parts of the New Zealand building and construction industry. Viewpoints and strategies toward resolving our industry challenges will consider the impacts to the whole of the industry, showing respect to the small, independent business person, the large corporate operators, and to the many communities and clients we serve.


Practical, Inspired and Fresh in Our Thinking
Practical, Inspired and Fresh in Our Thinking

In more recent times, the industry has faced some of the most massive and complex issues in its long history. These problems cannot be solved by the thinking that brought us to this point, but require new, inspired and practical strategies to push through and find better pathways. CSG will not compromise when fundamental change is needed and questioning the status quo will be integral to this process.
