Development Manager - Residential

All New Zealanders deserve to be safe, healthy and happy, wherever they are in our beautiful country – at home, at school, at work. But millions of New Zealanders are not healthy and happy, simply because our buildings are not good enough. Too many homes are damp, and cold. Too many of our tamariki are sick because of where they live.

At the New Zealand Green Building Council, we’re working to make all of our buildings happy, healthy places. For our children. For our whānau. For our environment.
