RetroBuild Competition

The Advantage Foundation, assisted partly by a grant from the Waste Authority’s Community Grants Scheme, has established the RetroBuild Competition where four teams of uni students and tradies will join forces to upgrade four Perth homes to make them more sustainable. The homes will then be sold with all profits going to a charity. The four houses are currently building identified and the competition should begin in October. I’m hoping there will be some professional input from architects, as there are many of us who have experience in retrofitting existing buildings for sustainability and it would be great to see this recognised, and utilised.
