I am afraid I don't understand the link, at all. That happens for me on politics, sometimes. Things go over my head and I simply don't follow.

I think the building construction thing is a combination of poverty and a comparatively cheap supply of wood that is used for low density housing and probably something to do with our lack of skilled engineers / construction people, too.

Older places vary... Some of them do use heated water and central heating systems. Others of them have fire places instead, however, which are largely now out of commission. I don't know why fire places were installed instead of central heating systems.

We cannot organise for a properly functioning aluminum smelter, apparently. So most of our construction material that is not cheap wood is imported from Australia. I mean, I think we can do sand for concrete. Though perhaps not so much if you look at the state of our roads. I am fairly sure our roads are toxic waste sludge dumps of soft substances that need to be applied over and over and over and over and over by ex-prisoners in the attempt to take years and years of their life expectancy more than anything else...

Apparently Hawkins Construction went bankrupt somehow. Was brought out by something Australian. Downer. Now Downer advertisements are up all over... Well... In Work and Income Offices. Pass your drug test... Work for Downer Construction. The aluminum for the high rises is coming in from Australia or something.

Downer is the mining people - yes?

That used to be a thing. New Zealand young-ish men would go to Australia for a time to work in the mines. Good money to be sending home for a family... I don't know if New Zealanders are still doing that.

We don't have jobs for our people.

Can't organise anything, at all.
