7 Star NatHERS: creating affordable and appropriate housing
10/10/2022 11:00 AM (AWST) | 2.00 PM (AEDT)
The Western Australian Department of Communities resolved to achieve 7 star NatHERS for social housing in August 2021. With over 600 homes now designed to achieve 7 star energy efficiency, Communities is ready for NCC2022 and you can be too. While it may cost more to modify “off-the-plan” this is not the case for “designed for site” options. This presentation will demonstrate the processes that the WA Department of Communities adopted to achieve 7 star plus affordable housing. Presenter Dave Jones will share the data and cost saving figures to illustrate how easily achievable 7 star homes are to achieve with the correct approach and with energy efficiency as a central design focus from early in the design phase.
