Building Solutions

CRESA were subcontracted to conduct research as part of the larger project Building Solutions for Affordable, Functional Housing in Ageing and Changing Communities funded through a contestable research fund via BBHTC.

This project responds to the profound and growing under-supply of affordable rental housing among older people and low waged workers, the widespread resistance to intensification through medium- and high- rise buildings, and the diversity of housing needs associated with structural ageing and New Zealand’s tenure revolution. It also recognises the ‘brake’ to regional growth that a lack of affordable housing presents.

Publications CRESA researchers worked on are listed below. You can find other publications related to this project on the BBHTC website.
