• Sustainability & the Environment

    Master Builders Association of NSW proudly provides the following options for those wishing to pursue further learning and involvement in the sustainability and environmental fields of work.

    Commercial sector

    For the Commercial sector, targeted education to address niche learning needs based on the Building Code of Australia (Section J) are planned as well as a learning Expo to bring together some of the most advanced thinking about both construction issues and bigger picture analysis to address macro sustainability themes. 

    A Sustainability Managers’ Forum is now meeting monthly to discuss sustainability and environmental issues and to provide Master Builders with strategic direction in terms of educational and training needs. The group is currently developing a set of working objectives.

    Residential sector

    For the Residential sector, Master Builders delivers the nationally acclaimed and recognised Green Living Builder program designed to provide information about environmentally sustainable materials, techniques and drive economy and profitability in the business.

    Green Living Program

    In 2004 Master Builders Australia launched the popular and topical Green Living program to provide residential builders with the necessary tools to integrate sustainability options in their building and construction activities. Builders who complete the two-day educational program and are able to demonstrate how they have integrated their learning into their current practice (an assignment-based activity which follows the classroom activity) are able to identify themselves as Master Builders Green Living builders.  For more information on the Green living program click here. 

    For other sectors, big things are planned in coming years! Master Builders has developed a strategic plan for the Sustainability and Environment Department and your comments will be both sought out and very welcome.
