Templates and tools

We have developed a suite of communication tools and templates to assist designers and homeowners with designing a sustainable home.

These documents outline good practice in designing, planning, building, maintaining and renovating homes to make them more socially, environmentally and economically sustainable.

We encourage homeowners to use these tools as a guide to simple design solutions that can be discussed with their building designer at the beginning of a project.

The Smart Housing Design Objectives publication was produced prior to the current government.
