Sustainable Green Building Advice

Sustainability – better outcomes and better profits

Rocketing energy costs, increasing demand for GreenStar buildings and mandatory disclosure for commercial properties is continuing to drive the demand for energy efficient buildings and green building knowledge. Increasingly, sustainable buildings result in improved outcomes for the owners and occupiers in the form of increased liveability at a reduced cost.

Master Builders’ training uses a holistic pathway that incorporates natural building materials, the harnessing of renewable energies and cost reduction practices based on quality green decisions. Through our training courses, advisory services and our Green Living Conference, our sustainability team will help you to build affordable housing that is light filled, more comfortable to live in and has minimal environmental impact. The Green Living website provides valuable information and support for both builders and clients. Potential clients can also search for an accredited Green
Living Builder.
