-  Licensed Building Practioner (LBP)

Critical building work that involves the building’s structure, weather tightness and design of fire safety systems is ‘restricted building work’ (RBW). Because this work is so important, it’s only allowed to be completed by a licensed building practitioner (LBPs).


Licensed Building Practitioners (LBPs) are assessed before getting a licence, builders must have adequate qualifications, upskill and keep up to date with changing industry practices and regulations in order to continue to be licensed.  

A licensed building practitioner (LBP) can be identified by producing their photo ID licence card and by checking their details against the public register.

-  New Zealand Certified Builder (NZCB)

Alder Homes is a proud member of NZCB. Unlike other builder associations, NZCB has rigorous entry criteria. The minimum entry requirement for all members is a recognized industry trade qualification. Builder’s track records are also closely assessed and monitored. NZCB membership is proof of a demonstrated history of stability and success.


Certified Builders are also subject to ongoing development requirement. Trained in the latest building techniques, we are kept up-to-date with industry developments and regulatory requirements.
