If I was to follow corporate colours we should be partnering with a bank that is orange and black but we think the side track to blue is worth it. The Building Hub banks with BNZ because we have seen a strong commitment to SME's throughout the country and they are leading the field with innovative products to make your life easier. We have received some extremely usefull information from BNZ which we will be passing on over the coming year to help us all be good with money.
After searching through all the magazines out there we settled on BOB Magazine as our official publication for the Building Hub. BOB Magazine has good solid content with no affiliations to hinder freedom of speech, and you all know how I like to tell it as it is.
Insurance is a big issue for many builders and there are loads of products out there just to make sure you get confused about what actually covers what. That is why we have partnered with Builtin who offer not just insurance, but guarantees as well.

They can offer cover that exceeds anyone else, and sometimes, that is what you need. We like to partner with people who can help make your lives easier and the team at Builtin are always available to help out.

Safe Rebuild Canterbury
Safe Rebuild Canterbury are offering great Health & Safety training to people in Christchurch. The training is free, goes for 4 hours (either a morning or an afternoon) and it's free. Yes, free. But it might not be for long. They are currently seeking NZQA certification and when they do, it might come with a price tag. I have heard some great reports about the quality of the course and you can get 4 points towards your skills maintenance. Recommended by Fletchers.

Anyone who has come to the Roadshow would have seen my Youmans Capsule and know this is the coolest capsule 'in the world', and not just because it was designed by my brother. They looked all over the world for manufacturers, but the only people who could cope with such a project were right here in NZ. Hamilton to be precise. You won't find a more stylish way to present your designs and plans.
