Medium Density Housing Summit 2018 | Auckland

This is a must attend for all architects and architectural designers

Medium density housing across New Zealand cities is on the rise – Nearly 60% of new consents in Auckland city and inner city suburbs over the past year have been for medium density construction.

This summit will cover everything you need to know to ensure that you and your practice are prepared for and understand the challenges faced when designing 3-6 storey structures.

Learn from experts in their fields about why we need to be embracing medium density, the importance of acoustics, and the legislation and regulations around fire, weather tightness, structure, and cladding. Be inspired by leading international and local architects as they showcase how medium density design can be creative and exciting all while benefiting the environment and enhancing the communities we live in.

Join us for two days of inspiring informative speakers and embrace our changing landscape
