Haere mai. The School of Architecture held a panel session on how we can build better homes with better environmental outcomes, co-hosted by NZGBC Future Thinkers, The Sustainable Future Collective and the Future Cities Research Hub.
We had an impressive panel lined up to discuss sustainable design, with experts on energy use, materials choice, construction and demolition waste, water management, and environmental certification schemes.
This was a great chance to learn, network, and get stuck in to 2020 armed with some new knowledge. Following the panel discussion, there was plenty of time to chat and meet new people.
