New Zealand’s legacy of sub-standard housing continues largely due to building code minimum requirements for energy efficiency and comfort that are decades behind Europe and North America. New homes are built every day that suffer from condensation. Many are colder than buyers expected.

The solution, of course, is to build beyond the code. But what are the best choices? Where will investments pay off in terms for comfort and energy savings?

This presentation covers good design strategies, thoughtful ‘up-spec’ decisions, and useful technologies that anyone building or renovating a home should carefully consider.

Dr. Nelson Lebo is Eco Design Advisor for Palmerston North City Council.
