The Tasmanian Housing, Kitchen and Bathroom Awards are open

The housing awards represent the pinnacle in achievement for the residential construction industry with entrants awarded for excellence in design, innovation and workmanship, and for their commitment to sustainable practices across the renovation, kitchen and bathroom and new home sectors of industry in Tasmania.

Each year the bar is being raised with Tasmanian finalists and winners being acknowledged for their outstanding projects at the local, regional and national level.

To maintain this momentum we need industry to get behind the awards - so if you have a project that you, your staff, contractors and clients are proud of make sure you enter this year’s HIAs awards that are poised to be bigger and better than ever!

HIA to help members understand the upcoming NCC changes

With the National Construction Code (NCC) moving to a three year amendment cycle, it has resulted in an unprecedented level of changes that will affect the residential building industry.

HIA will be running seminars scheduled for 4 April (Hobart) and 5 April (Launceston) to help you prepare for the key changes.

These seminars are a must for those building or designing homes, and those approving or supplying products to houses and apartments.

The seminars will cover a range of topics from both Volume 1 and 2 of the NCC and includes a number of topics relevant to Tasmanian members such as the condensation management provisions; evidence of suitability requirements for building products; energy efficiency; fire safety provisions; and bushfire provisions.

The full day program will attract 6 CPD points and will be split into a morning session on the housing provisions and afternoon session on medium density and multi-residential.
