 Easy Guide to Eco-Building

Eco-Guide-(2006).jpgDesign, build and live with the environment

The Easy Guide to Eco-Building is a concise, A5-sized booklet describing how to carry out construction projects with consideration for the environment. It suggests things to consider from the very early stages of design right through to the end of the building's lifetime. There are references and contacts you can follow up on. You dictate how much information you want! Read our section on sustainable construction.

The guide is for those wanting a general overview of important green building issues as well as those wanting detailed New Zealand-specific information on eco-products, services, and design.

What issues are covered?

  • Efficient energy usage.
  • Efficient water usage.
  • Reducing construction waste.
  • Careful building selection.
  • Good landscaping.
