Who’s keen to Design their own Eco Home? Whether you’re thinking of planning an eco home, or simply would like to learn more about sustainable building practices, this weekend workshop is highly recommendable. Sign up quick for our May workshop,only limited places available at EcoMatters Environment Trust our favourite Auckland venue.

For those wanting to find out more about eco building and creating a concept plan for their project this two-day workshop will be a very positive way to spend a weekend!  Our architects and designers present up-to-date practical knowledge on building an eco home, and help guide you through the design process to develop a concept plan for your project.

Participating with a project, your key benefit will be taking home a concept plan of your project, incorporating some of the latest eco materials and systems.  

As well as a fantastic workshop for home owners, it is also valuable for any building industry professionals (e.g. builders, designers, planners, real estate agents,…).  Over the two days six intensive theory sessions are presented covering all the key current eco building concepts, principles and the BBE process around planning and designing your home.  Each theory session is followed by a design session focused on the theory just taught.  Your design is progressed during these design sessions – at the end of the workshop you get to take away a concept floor plan for your new home.   

This workshop will present inspirational and practical information about healthier, happier and more sustainable building.  You will learn about what is involved in designing an Eco Home and venture in the process involved in building one.  Close interaction with experienced designers will help you to develop ideas for your own home and by the end of the workshop, each participant who enrolled with a project, will have a conceptual plan of their project.
