Auckland Story for 21 March 2012 - First Passive House

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 3:33 pm on 21 March 2012

When completed, the Ivanier's Glendowie home will be the region's first certified passive house. Spoken Features producer Lisa Thompson visits the building site to meet Philip, who is now a trailblazer for a concept still relatively unfamiliar in New Zealand.
