Then on Saturday he will be joining Bob Burnett – Bob Burnett Architecture from 1-3.30pm for a combined Q & A session on building Energy Efficient homes in Canterbury.
Glenn will be on the Pro clima NZ stand (110E) where his Q & A sessions will be aimed at answering questions, and he will share his extensive knowledge and experience as the builder of Canterbury’s first Certified Passive House.
Pro clima’s airtightness and weathertightness building system, in combination with effective insulation and appropriate ventilation, creates an energy efficient, low allergen emitting, comfortable, healthy home or place of business. Their patented system also ensures the long term effectiveness of the insulation and the structural durability of the building by protecting it from moisture damage, thereby making sure your healthy, energy efficient and eco friendly environment remains that way for many years in the future.
Harley Builders have recently won a Silver medal and the Sustainable Lifestyle Award at the Registered Master Builders House of the Year competition for building Canterbury’s first-ever Certified Passive House. This Fendalton home officially maintains a constant air temperature of between 20 and 25 degrees celsius – with no heating or cooling required. That means extremely low power bills and very little impact on the planet – despite a generous 347sqm footprint.
