Covid-19 Development Update - May 2020

Construction under Alert Level 2

Following the lockdown period, Kāinga Ora’s build and developer partners re-opened sites after the move to Alert Level 3 on 28 April. With the country now in Alert Level 2, Kāinga Ora staff members who support the work undertaken by our build and development partners will continue to visit sites.  

Our top priority will continue to be health and safety for everyone who works, or visits our sites. We will ensure our staff and contractors follow all government health and safety protocols designed to keep workers, as well as the community, safe, as we all unite against COVID-19. This includes such things as following guidance relating to physical distancing, hygiene, site entry and exit, deliveries, and visitor protocols.

For information on the new Government health and safety standards and protocols for the industry, visit the CHASNZ website (Construction Health and Safety New Zealand).

Viewing show homes and display suites under Alert Level 2

During Alert Level 2, show homes and display suites can be open by appointment, and visitors and sales staff must adhere to public health guidance and health and safety requirements. Please contact the developer to arrange appointments.

Viewing KiwiBuild homes under Alert Level 2

All home viewings must meet Government health and safety requirements. Please contact the developer or agent of the home you are interested in to discuss your viewing options. All available and upcoming homes are on the KiwiBuild website. You can get in touch with the KiwiBuild team at or call 0800 521 107 to arrange a call back.

House sale settlements under Alert Level 2

During Alert Level 2, where possible, the physical interactions involved in house sale, purchase and settlement must be done remotely. You may be able to do a final pre-settlement inspection in person as long as all physical distancing and health and safety measures are taken.
