Nau mai, haere mai!

The New Zealand Green Building Council is excited to announce the Housing Summit to be held at the Grand Millennium Hotel Auckland on 20 June 2018.

We’ve all sat in conferences that are all hammer and no nails. And while we sit around in large meeting rooms, our homes still aren’t good enough, and haven’t been for years.

No longer should our fellow New Zealanders have to live in damp, cold, unhealthy homes.

We know how to build warm, dry homes for our whānau. We know that the time for talk is over, and now’s the time for action.

Special for NZGBC Future Thinkers $250.00 +gst. Email events

We have a great line up of exciting, inspiring and diverse national and international speakers.

Industry CPD points

NZIA 60 NZRAB points

ADNZ 10.5 points

NZGBC 6 FE points
