Eco Design Advisor Conference: Retrofit for the Future

Price $100 – $200 NZD + BF Get Tickets

Event description

The Eco Design Advisors are back after a four-year break with a conference!  The focus of the 2024 year’s Eco Design Advisor Conference will be on retrofit.   Times are tough with the cost-of-living crisis and we are finding more people are focusing on retrofitting and improving their current homes rather than moving homes as frequently.  

There are many things to consider when retrofitting – comfort, flexibility/adaptability, design, energy/carbon efficiency, climate proof … 

The Eco Design Advisor conference brings together the latest research from building scientists, central government policy and implementation, case studies and design insights from architects, designers and building professionals. 

Professional development for architects and designers, builders, building industry, community housing organisations, council staff, home assessors and advisors, and sustainability experts. 

The following day you can join the Superhomes Bus Tour to visit some great examples of high performing Christchurch homes and discuss your learnings-  

CPD points: we hope to offer CPD points as we have done for previous conferences, but we are still in the process of getting this sorted. TBC 

The Eco Design Advisor conference is where research and policy meet best practice advice for households. The Eco Design Advisor conference provides a unique perspective and is highly valued by practitioners, architects, designers, researchers and building professionals as a multi-disciplinary forum for sharing research, policy, case studies, innovative ideas, and best practice. It is steadily gaining a reputation as a key event in sustainable and healthy building education.
