Showhome visit by Tauranga City Council elected members and Planning Team
The team at ECOSTAR were delighted to be able to accommodate Tauranga City Councils request to view the first Homestar ten star design home in New Zealand.
Tauranga City’s Mayor Stuart Crosby and several of his fellow elected council officials took the opportunity to come and see for themselves the ECOSTAR show home at 85 Palm Springs Boulevard in Papamoa. They were joined by the Planning department of the council en- masse making a visiting delegation of over forty. It is fair to say that this show home visit by council officials was unprecedented, and a sign of how far the Homestar star rating has become a recognized measure of quality.
The ECOSTAR team was there to give details about how and why we at ECOSTAR have embarked on this journey towards sustainable and super- efficient Homestar rated homes. The Council planning team were there to get a better understanding of technical aspect of the design and material alternatives that ECOSTAR include in their general specifications, and to aid us with the processing of drawings through the compliance stages.
The elected Council members were impressed by the features of this home and how sustainability and resource efficiency for 21st century modern living were incorporated into the design. They came away armed with ideas reminding them of how simple measures can make vast differences to running costs to any buildings.
The ECOSTAR Papamoa show home is situated at 85 Palm Springs Boulevard, Papamoa.
