Building a Better New Zealand

Innovative ways to create better communities and improve the performance of existing buildings will be discussed by national and overseas speakers at the Building a Better New Zealand conference in September.

Registrations are now open for the conference from 3 to 5 September in Auckland.

“Building a Better New Zealand will feature a wide range of industry speakers and researchers from here and overseas and provides a forum to share knowledge and insights about the latest building innovations,” says Lois Easton, from the conference organising committee.

Success stories and case studies from New Zealand and internationally will show effective ways to build better cities and communities, improve the performance of existing buildings, meet the housing needs of New Zealanders and improve productivity within the wider building sector.

Come and hear:
- Richard Blakeway, Deputy Mayor of London, on London's housing strategy to increase supply

- Johnny McFarlane, project manager for the Cardboard Cathedral
- Jerome Partington who recently facilitated the Te Wharehau O Tuhoe, the first Living Building project in New Zealand.
