Beacon pathway

Posted 04 Sep '11 10:58 PM

Just stumbled across this website www.beaconpathway.co.nz It seems to be researching and developing improvements in house renovation and new builds in terms of sustainability? However, I am not clear on exactly what their purpose is. There doesn't seem to be any research or clear conclusions on any construction methods, materials to use, insulation levels to aim for? Anyone else have any thoughts?

It appears to me to be an organisation with the right intentions but I agree, I don't see any plan of action yet.

They should be in Christchurch right now building an eco friendly quake safe show home to demonstrate what can be done to all of the people about to rebuild

Beacon presented the results of their NOW hme research a couple of years ago. They are going to have 10 Build Back Smarter demonstration homes in Christchurch, which will be used to investigate different methods of improving a house as it is repaired: http://beaconpathway.co.nz/index.php/news/article/building_back_smarter_in_christchurch

I'm sure even Fletcher's have a corporate social responsibility program. Nothing to do with keeping an eye on potential threats to eliminate or buy out. Never.
