about the nzcma
The New Zealand Concrete Masonry Association (NZCMA) endeavours to advance the wellbeing of the concrete masonry industry by executing a work programme that addresses issues of short and long-term importance. It does this in partnership with the CCANZ which is now leading to the formation of a Masonry Sector Group.
NZCMA objectives include maintaining a commitment by its members to manufacture products that comply with AS/NZS 4455 and NZS 3116, promoting the architectural and engineering uses of concrete masonry both in building and civil engineering, providing representation to public and private sectors, as well as developing and supporting the technical competence of the masonry trade.
Concrete Masonry Manual
The NZCMA, in partnership with the Cement & Concrete Association of New Zealand (CCANZ), has updated the Concrete Masonry Manual. It is now made available on this website where it can be freely downloaded in sections as required.
The Manual was created as a guide to the design and construction of concrete masonry; a staple material of the construction industry that encompasses reinforced concrete block and concrete block veneer, along with concrete block paving and flagstone paving for pedestrian walkways.
