  C02 and Concrete
Posted by: admin - 27-Sep-2019, 02:49 PM - Forum: NZ Architecture Open Forum - No Replies

Is anyone in NZ supplying slag and limestone based concrete?  Or using recycled plastic in concrete?

Sounds like these two measures together could even make concrete C02 negative - perhaps competing with timber, especially when embodied maintenance costs, and thermal mass opportunities are factored in over the life of a building.

Quote:You may be aware of Joe Lstiburek  -I have followed him for some years and found him to be a wonderful building science communicator.
If you haven’t, it’s worth googling him-his publications are very readable, comprehensive and wide ranging.
So I am surprised to see that he is will be in NZ and it seems like a great opportunity to engage with him.

Interested architects would need to go to the Rooflogic website to register.

The event is on the opening page of the Rooflogic website:
https://www.rooflogic.co.nz/

And each venue has a separate link.

  Looking to buy used ArchiCAD license
Posted by: ArchinFR - 12-Feb-2019, 02:27 AM - Forum: NZ Architecture Open Forum - Replies (2)

Hi All,
I am looking to legally buy a used archiCAD license. The more recent the better. Is there any firms outs there that have an unused license they are wanting to sell?
I am just starting work as a contract architectural technician and cannot afford the full commercial license. 
Any help much appreciated!

Sad to hear the news that Will Alsop passed away last Saturday.
His architecture was born out of pure motivation, and even if you did not love the finished product, you had to love the guy for his very dry wit and his perseverance.
Cheers

I have a mate who has purchased Rolly Adams house in St Heliers and he is keen to try and get in touch with him. Is Rolly still alive and if so, does anyone have a contact for him?

Those that got to check out Amanda Hyde De Kretzer's home in St Heliers last year are in for a treat.
Her folks are moving to a retirement home and are selling their suburban gem, designed by Amanda a few years back.
Located adjacent to their old family home on Lady's Mile, Remuera, this is another fantastic response to create higher density, without compromise.
Open homes start this weekend, so get on down there and take a look.

Heart Re-purpose Solid Oak and Fir Homes from Europe - Curious?
Posted by: Mace James - 24-Feb-2018, 09:17 PM - Forum: NZ Architecture Open Forum - No Replies

I'm in Europe and want to import oak, fir, etc., houses (and other big wood materials, such as beams, stairs, surfaces, etc) into NZ similar to the ones in the photos below.

I want to find an architect, builder, good old Kiwi 'number 8 wire' type entrepreneurs to partner with.
