Description

What is the most cost-effective way to design a new home that performs better than the Building Code’s basic dwelling? BRANZ’s Up-spec can help answer this question by providing regional-specific quantitative data.

New Zealand homebuilders and designers are increasingly being challenged to achieve higher-performing homes in terms of utility, resource efficiency and indoor comfort.

Unfortunately, most current recommendations are limited to vague and generic advice with little quantitative supporting data. The lack of more specific, practical and cost-effective design solutions easily available from independent sources is likely to result in poor outcomes and wasted resources both upfront and over the long term.
