Free Seminar on Designing and Rating for Sustainability

Join Resene for a free informative seminar. Learn more about design rating systems versus performance for commercial and residential projects from leading expert Dr Paul Bannister and the latest update on the Residential Rating Tool – Homestar.

Presented by Dr Paul Bannister and Matthew Cutler-Welsh, these two hour free seminars are presented by Resene.

Attend and earn 20 NZRAB CPD points or 4 ADNZ CPD points or two hours LBP learning.

Paul will discuss design rating systems vs performance in commercial buildings including a discussion of NABERS vs Green Star and key lessons from each, design rating systems vs performance in home and why it's different, including lessons from NABERS and the development of NABERS homes, and comfort vs energy efficiency in homes and why efficient buildings may actually use more power but have healthier occupants.

Paul will be followed by Matthew, who will bring you up to date with the latest news on the Homestar Residential Rating Tool and its application in New Zealand. Matthew Cutler-Welsh is the technical manager for Homestar and is intimately involved with the application of the rating tool in New Zealand homes.
