NZGBC launches Homestar
Homestar.org.nz is now live. Minister for Building and Construction Maurice Williamson launched the tool and discussed the integral role it will play in improving knowledge about home performance in New Zealand. Minister Williamson's speech was followed by presentations from Alex Cutler, Chris Ellis of Fletcher Building and Alistair Helm, CEO of Realestate.co.nz, which has endorsed Homestar.org.nz by integrating ratings into its website.
The tool has so far achieved some excellent mainstream media coverage. This coverage has driven more than 5,500 people to Homestar.org already and made it one of New Zealand's most visited websites this week with a total of over 55,000 page views. More than 2,000 people have already completed the online assessment, which is an amazing response in such a short time.
