There are currently two demonstration homes being developed by Burnett in Christchurch’s Church Square that he has designed to 10 Star HomeStar standards. The homes are due for completion at the end of this month, and one was recently formally awarded 10 Star HomeStar Design certification by the NZ Green Building Council.
The SUPERHOME movement has so far gained support from the central government, Christchurch City Council, and a number of builders, developers, designers, architects, investors and materials manufacturers. An initial meeting hosted by the council drew over 120 people, and Burnett says some of them went away with ideas that have resulted in positive changes to projects that were already under construction.
