Event description
A critical discussion on what needs to change to achieve healthy & affordable homes

About this Event

Many new homes built in New Zealand, often only meet the minimum standards of insulation and weather tightness, that are defined in the Building Code. Add to this the major issues with existing houses and their critical need of upgrading. Every fifth house in New Zealand shows a moisture reading that is above the norm. The average inside room temperature of living areas and bedrooms are not complying with what the WHO recommends them to be – all caused by no, or insufficient, thermal breaking in the building structure or no / not sufficient insulation.

We hope to change this - through robust discussion and lobbying from our members in the construction & building sector.

New Zealand doesn’t stand alone when it comes to more efficient and sustainable solutions in buildings across the country. German-New Zealand partnerships in the building sector have already made a difference, which has led to increased building quality, reduced energy costs and lowered the carbon emission levels in New Zealand. However, as we are German, after all, we want perfection! Hence, we need to talk to the industry directly.

Join our session to:

  1. Get an update on the latest technology & products from Germany
  2. Discuss the biggest differences/challenges between building quality in NZ & Germany
  3. Understand how a knowledge transfer can happen between the 2 countries especially with our current boarder situation

Our confirmed speakers:

Monique Surges, CEO at GNZCC

Matthew Cutler-Welsh, Education Manager at Pro Clima

Sam Archer, Director of Market Transformation at NZGBC

Katheren Leitner, CEO at Asthma New Zealand Inc.
