For those wanting to find out more about the latest evolution in eco building and design this is the workshop for you! The workshop also provides a two-day space to concentrate solely on your house/project design.
Our architects and designers present up-to-date practical knowledge on building an eco home around the purest BBE principles, combined with the powerful Superhome practices and help guide you through the design process to develop a concept plan for your project.
Participating with a project, your key benefit will be taking home a concept plan of your project, including a permaculture plan of your site and incorporating some of the latest eco materials and systems.
As well as a fantastic workshop for home owners, it is also valuable for developers, architects, designers, builders, council building inspectors, planners, real estate agents - basically anyone in the building industry.
Over the two days six intensive theory sessions are presented covering all the key current eco building concepts, principles and the BBE process around planning and designing your home. Each theory session is followed by a design session focused on the theory just taught. Your design is progressed during these design sessions. – at the end of the workshop you take away a concept floor plan for your new home.
This workshop will present inspirational and practical information about healthier, happier and more sustainable building. You will learn about what is involved in designing an Eco Home and venture in the process involved in building one.
Close interaction with experienced designers will help you to develop ideas for your own home and by the end of the workshop, if you have enrolled with a project, you will have a conceptual plan of your project.
The workshop comprises 6 Theory sessions and 6 Design sessions. Each theory session is followed by a focused Design session based on the theory of the previous session.
