The New Zealand Building Economist story so far has a long and proud tradition of serving those who work with construction costs in their chosen field including; Architects, Engineers, Draftspersons, Developers, Quantity Surveyors, Builders, Carpenters, Sub- contractors, Property Managers, Building Owners, Valuers, Insurance Assessors, Loss Adjusters, Lawyers; and Accountants; with current construction costs, specialising in residential and light commercial building works.
Established as “Monthly Construction Costs” in 1965, after 27 issues, it continued as “Current Construction Costs” published bi-monthly in 1967. April 1972 brought a new format, colour cover with 1970’s stylised text and graphics and a new name, “The New Zealand Building Economist” with the new tag line “Incorporating Current Construction Costs.” This is the current title and tag line today with a minor tweek in the May 2019 Edition with tag line change to “For Current Construction Costs”.
