Queenstown Lakes District Council (QLDC) endorsed an ultra-low energy ‘Passive House’ concept for the new hall late last year. Since then, Council officers have been working to turn this aspiration into a detailed project plan for what may well be one of the first community facilities built and certified to Passive House standard anywhere in Aotearoa New Zealand.
Richard Pope said the design team is beginning to work on the concept plan and building location planning that combines the operational functions of the building required to meet community needs with Passive House technology and design elements.
“I’m looking forward to sharing the concepts with the Luggate community and the wider district,” he said.
