New insulation standards consultation

The Ministry of Business, Innovation & Employment (MBIE) has just released a proposal to alter the Building Code to increase the energy efficiency of new homes, as well as a raft of other improvements in terms of energy efficiency and housing densification. This is hugely significant as it will affect all councils across the country both in terms of well-being and regulatory enforcement.
