The Block NZ This year’s eco outlook
The Block NZ site foreman Peter Wolfkamp talks us through the environmentally friendly elements of this year’s homes
The Block NZ 2017 is embracing high-density living with four teams building semi-detached terrace housing in Northcote, Auckland. While not typical eco-builds, this year’s properties go above and beyond the Building Code. Site foreman Peter Wolfkamp fills us in on the eco-friendly systems and materials adopted by this season’s crews – from adding extra insulation to installing rooftop gardens – and we also suggest a few extra ways to make your home or renovation more eco-friendly.
