International Straw Building Conference
3-9 March 2016, Methven, New Zealand
Resene Construction Systems with ROCKCOTE Natural Materials are proudly sponsoring this International Event. Our very own Bob
The conference will be a celebration of Natural Building worldwide and provides a rare face-to face opportunity for networking with others in the field from all over the globe. Builders, home owners, engineers, architects and designers, building officials, housing providers, building suppliers, farmers, researchers and academics, and anybody else who cares about the quality of the built environment and its impact on the world we share – come join us.
The 5 day, 6 night conference will feature keynote addresses, presentations from delegates, hands-on workshops and displays, trade shows, uniquely Kiwi social events, house tours (may be before and/or after the conference proper), the all-important Straw Bale Olympics and most importantly the opportunity to strengthen existing relationships and develop new ones.
The venue, Methven, is a ski resort town, one hour’s drive from Christchurch International Airport. A variety of accommodation is available from luxury resort style to camping and all within a few minutes walk of the Heritage Centre where most of the conference activities will take place.
