NZGBC Waikato Forum hosted the third in this year's Green Speak Waikato event series to coincide with World Green Building Week 2017.
Inspirational talks and networking followed directly from a tour of the school.
To celebrate World Green Building Week 2017, Rototuna School kindly opened its doors to the public. Enabling us to see this newly completed educational facility first hand. Targeting Green Star certification, this building has been designed with many systems that reduce its overall environmental impact
