HIGH PERFORMANCE HOMES SEMINAR

Are you prepared for what's on the horizon for Australia's home building workforce?

Here's a snapshot of what's coming and what's already upon us:

Penalties for code undercompliance, more stringent regulations, increased demand from homeowners for homes that comply to the NCC interms of thermal and energy efficiency, more and more homeowners asking for homes that will cost them less to run.

Let's put it this way, are you confident that the end result of your work (be it the design or the construction) would pass an 'as-built test' for thermal and energy efficient performance?

Our guest speakers want to share their knowledge and expertise with you so you can deliver your client a home that is built on performance, collaboration and compliance - without depleting your profit margins!
