Company History

Compass New Zealand Ltd began life in 1996 to provide compliance management services to the commercial property sector. The Building Act 1991 (superceded by the Building Act 2004) and the Fire Safety and Evacuation of Buildings Regulations 1992 heralded increasing compliance obligations for building owners. The ability of the Territorial Authorities (local councils) to manage and enforce the regulatory requirements also increased over time, with better property records, and the ability to charge the building owner for receipt of compliance documents, allowing more dedicated staff to manage and audit these processes. Compass New Zealand Limited has built a strong national clientelle, by offering efficient and cost effective compliance management solutions and great customer service. Now a market leader, we are also an active member of industry development groups including the New Zealand Fire Protection Association (NZFPA) and the Building Compliance Managers’ Association (BCMA). Today, with three full time consultants, a great administrative team and a network of trusted service providers nationwide, we are ready to assist with all your compliance management needs.
