Members of the NZ Concrete Masonry Association manufacture products that comply with the requirements of:

  • NZS 4210 Masonry Construction: Materials and Workmanship for concrete masonry and veneer
  • NZS 3116 Concrete Segmental and Flagstone Paving for paving products

Concrete masonry is a staple material of the New Zealand construction industry; a silent workhorse that encompasses reinforced concrete block and concrete block veneer, along with concrete block paving and flagstone paving for pedestrian walkways.

The Concrete Masonry Manual, which was created in the late 1970s as a guide to the design and construction of concrete masonry, has been updated and is available in sections for free download as required.
