Feature Briefs

Here are the briefs for our upcoming features in EBOSSNOW: 


April 2024: Reducing Construction Waste

The construction industry is one of the largest waste-producing industries in NZ, with construction and demolition waste representing up to 50% of all waste generated. We want to hear from companies who are actively helping to divert that waste from landfill.

  • What is your company doing to reduce, reuse and recover waste?
  • Do you have digital tools that help designers accurately specify product and limit wastage?
  • Do you have a project that exemplifies how you minimise construction waste through your products and services?

This is a great opportunity to demonstrate your company's active commitment to reducing construction waste.

Article submission deadline: Thursday 14 March

Note: We will select the articles that best fit this brief. If we receive more than 20 articles for this feature, we may shift some articles to our popular Interiors or Exteriors newsletters instead.


May 2024: Learning Environments

This month we want to hear about products that contribute to the design of functional and welcoming spaces in early childcare centres, schools and tertiary institutions.

  • How do your products fit the requirements of Ministry of Education builds?
  • Do you have any new or innovative products that can help resolve a design issue common in learning environments (eg. acoustics, adaptability of spaces, natural light, durability, heating, cooling and ventilation)
  • Is there a recent project that can demonstrate how your products provided a solution to a design problem in a learning environment?

This is a chance to demonstrate to architects that your products are suitable for learning environments and can enhance the design of educational spaces for learners of all ages.

Article submission deadline: Thursday 18 April

Note: We will select the articles that best fit this brief. If we receive more than 20 articles for this feature, we may shift some articles to our popular Interiors or Exteriors newsletters instead.


June 2024: Designing to E3 Internal Waterproofing

This month we want to hear about products and systems designed to protect wet areas and manage internal moisture.

  • Do you offer waterproofing systems or moisture-resistant linings for wet areas like kitchens, bathrooms and laundries?
  • Are there any recent projects that demonstrate how your system has ensured a reliable waterproof result?
  • Do you offer any new or novel products that offer a designer finish while still providing effective waterproofing?

This is an opportunity to show architects how your products can exceed NZBC E3 requirements for wet areas while still providing an attractive finish.

Article submission deadline: Thursday 16 May

Note: We will select the articles that best fit this brief. If we receive more than 20 articles for this feature, we may shift some articles to our popular Interiors or Exteriors newsletters instead.
