SHAC challenges teams to build or retrofit a more sustainable house, building, office, classroom or community hall. Form a tertiary, industry, or community-led team, and work collaboratively, involve young people and communicate widely about your designs.

The aim is efficient, affordable, adaptable, durable, simple, healthy, and delightful buildings and neighbourhoods with focus on regenerative communities. Join in this national project with tertiary, industry, and community-based teams designing and building or retrofitting a more sustainable habitat for their community.

Some teams will build at tertiary institutions; others will build for private clients or the community. All teams will work collaboratively, involve and pass along skills to young people, and publish widely their designs and techniques. Together we are building our future. Join in!

Teams will be supported by national and local sponsors with design advice, regional workshops, experience and other sponsorship as negotiated. In October 2010, regional teams will come together to share ideas and discuss their designs. In October 2011, teams will meet at a national conference with peer review, expert review and awards.
