The primary role of the IAONZ is:
- Create an agreed standard of quality for product and installation in accordance with the NZ Building Code and AS/NZ Standards.
- Training installers and ensuring quality delivery for their customers
- Work with Government and Industry to develop the industry
- IAONZ was set up in 2009 to provide the industry with an advocate for quality of installation, training and product, especially for the Government’s Warm-Up New Zealand retrofit programme.
- IAONZ now represents a far wider range of organisations than those just involved in the retrofit insulation market.
- We are very concerned about ensuring our members install insulation correctly as it has a major impact on the house. Insulation may only be 5% of the cost but it has a huge impact on the comfort of a home.
- IAONZ has members the full length of New Zealand – there are approx. 4,000 people working for our members
- Since 2009 IAONZ has trained over 2,000 insulation installers through our training courses.
