Can we avoid building product recertification with the aim of reducing cost and increase market competition?
I am committed to improving the way we plan, design, and build. I strongly believe that implementing better building systems and practices can significantly improve project outcomes with less disruption and resources, all while reducing costs. My objective is to build robust global networks and relationships, and encourage greater industry collaboration and knowledge sharing, with the ultimate goal of significantly increasing the availability of high-quality, healthier, more energy-efficient, and sustainable buildings that can stand the test of time. Join us in our global mission to make a real difference to the way we build and live.

Why does it seem so challenging to cut building costs whilst still building good quality houses? The unfortunate truth is that every trade in the building industry is scurrying for money, ‘clipping the ticket’ as products and materials find their way through the supply chain to the customer.
