AWCI members benefit from the credibility of being a certified member of the National association for interior construction. By joining AWCI, you are stating that your company and your workmanship / delivery is the highest level.

Our members include contractors, tradespeople, manufacturers and suppliers in the fibrous plaster, proprietary partitions, drywall, acoustic, interior partitions, suspended ceilings and fibre-cement linings industries within New Zealand. We count some of the country’s largest and most influential construction organisations as members.
Companies such as GIB, Rondo, Potter Interior Systems, Comfortech, Hilti, Ramset, CSR Building Products, T&R Interiors and James Hardie are all key partners of the Association supporting the members.
