Define and Design - Wellington

New tools for better buildings, homes and communities

As our communities become denser and we live in closer proximity to one another, better standards for our homes are essential. High environmental performance houses are proven to improve health, reduce energy costs and ease the burden on urban infrastructure.

Join us for a thought leadership workshop to discuss how sustainable rating tools are increasing the quality of New Zealand buildings. This will be followed by the launch of the Homestar v4 tool!

Feel free to join us for all the sessions, or drop in for the sessions that most interest you – programme listed below.

If you would just like to attend the Homestar v4 Launch you can register for this separately here.
