The team at Capital Building attended the 2023 edition of Master Builders Association Victoria – Green Living Conference.
With a regular focus on Quality, Energy and Health it provides great insights from academics, designers, fellow builders, and suppliers.
As we press on towards the requirement for 7-star energy rating on the 1st of May 2024, it continues to be important remember good design fundamentals.
Including managing the percentage of floor area to windows and glazed doors – 22-26% seems to be a general rule of thumb to maximise thermal efficiency.
Ensure majority of these windows and doors are facing North where possible, to gain access to all day natural light and minimise the impact of direct sunlight during warmer months.
Ensure the buildings frame is well wrapped and sealed is key to ensure thermal comfort, energy efficiency and to reduce expensive energy bills.
Capital Building maintains its strong focus on energy efficient design and building.
