AWCI NZ is a trade association which represents the interests of building professionals and organisations operating in the wall and ceiling industries.

The AWCI NZ’s commitment to quality is second to none. Our certified membership scheme and dispute resolution services provide consumers with confidence that they’re engaging a building professional or organisation that adheres to the AWCI NZ’s strict standards for acceptable workmanship and business practice. We provide regular contributions to the industry’s body of knowledge through our freely available Codes of Practice and technical bulletins.

We are a strong supporter of professional development. Through partnerships with the Interior Systems National Advisory Group (NAG) and the Building & Construction Industry Training Organisation (BCITO), the AWCI NZ develops and directs a variety of development opportunities for our members and their employees. With the support of our members, we operate a cadetship scheme to transition young, unemployed Kiwis into full-time work.
