10:06 The Sunday Group: Keep the Home Fires Burning

British architect Huw Parslow reckons New Zealand is more than a decade behind many other developed countries in building sustainable housing. While we are making some improvements in the way we build office space, many of us still go home to draughty, poorly-insulated homes. The Sunday Group today discusses what's being done - and what needs to be done - to build homes that are sustainable - and better to live in. Chris Laidlaw chairs the panel that includes property developer Campbell Venning, the director of Merge Property Group, building Wellington's Metropol development (artists impression pictured below) which has a number of innovative, sustainable features - including a wind turbine on the roof; Huw Parslow, from ArcHaus Architects in Wellington, who designed the Metropol; and chief executive of the NZ Green Building Council Jane Henley. Produced by Christine Cessford.
