Get inspired to go green!

If you’re planning to build or renovate, or have an interest in sustainable building design, you’re invited to Macedon Ranges Shire Council’s free sustainable building information session, hosted by qualified sustainable building designer and MRSC staff member, Felicity Houghton.

The session will introduce participants to the basics of passive design strategies, which incorporate natural sources such as sunlight to heat and ventilation to cool a building, instead of relying on costly alternatives that require gas or electricity.

Learn more about sustainable design principles, including:
• Orientation of home
• Location and size of windows and their influence on temperature
• Shading
• How to harness a home’s thermal mass
• Insulation
