Green Living is a two-day sustainability training program designed specifically for enterprising residential builders. The program is wholly owned by the Master Builders Association.
It is a gateway program that facilitates other sustainability
training options such as Home Sustainability Assessment, Energy
Efficiency Rating Software (NATHERs), Sustainability Management
and a host of others. It is a program that Residential Builders
enjoy doing because of the information and technology that it
provides access to.
Green Living graduates form part of an emergent national Master Builders network and are seen as being at the cutting edge of sustainability development in the building and construction industry.
A list of the graduates of the Green Living program is on the website of the Master Builders ACT, and so is easily accessible to the highly educated and discerning ACT public who are looking for Green Living Builders to carry out their renovations and building projects. The ACT Government has also set out to ensure that the program is formally recognised in terms of new housing development tenders.
The Green Living program is supported by a distinctive Master Builders Green Living logo which will be increasingly visible on building sites around the ACT and throughout Australia. Graduates will also be able to purchase dress polo-shirts with the Green Living logo at the Master Builders ACT. Our intention is to raise the public profile of this program so that people associate it with practice professionalism and innovation.
Each year a 'refresher' program will be offered to Green Living graduates so that they can keep their skills and knowledge honed. Green Living Builders will be required each year to formally report back to the Master Builders Association about ways they have utilised their training in day-to-day building and construction activities to ensure their annual 'subscription' is renewed.
All Green Living Training is proudly supported by the ACT Building and Construction Industry Training Fund Authority.
Green Living Training
Green Buildings are increasingly becoming a normal part of the
construction landscape. Not only are companies competing to
have buildings with high ratings built for them, studies show
that there are positive economic benefits to the owners and
occupiers of these buildings and increased returns to
investors. Environmental and sustainability requirements are
increasingly becoming a part of government and private tenders.
This includes the requirement for companies to have
environmental policies and management plans in place and ensure
compliance by their employees.
Master Builders can provide you with the latest information, training and advice to help you meet these legislative and client requirements.
