Homestar v4 Platinum Sponsorship
CREATING SUSTAINABLE HOMES
Green Gorilla are passionate supporters and a Platinum Sponsor of Homestar v4, which is an independent tool that rates the environmental impact and performance of New Zealand homes. The system awards points across seven categories including construction waste. Points are added up across the categories to deliver a rating i.e. HomeStar v4 Rating 6.
There are two stages to a Homestar rating:
- Design – this rating assesses the full and final plans.
- Build – this rating occurs after a homes is constructed. It certifies that the features in the design rating have been fully implemented.
Why is Homestar v4 important to Green Gorilla?
Construction and demolition waste makes up half of NZ’s total waste going to landfill. Homestar v4 encourages the reduction of construction waste, reducing 2-3 tonnes going to landfill for every home built. Homestar v4 also promotes making homes warmer and drier, which means healthier homes for our families.
Green Gorilla can provide you with all the reporting and expert advice required for your certifications.
