In this week's programme, Richard Repp talks with Gavan Forster, Housing Director of the MBA about the new State Government regulations regarding Energy Efficiency in new homes. Under the new strict guidelines, as of July 1st 2003 builders will have to ensure each new home satisfies certain minimum energy efficiency standards of insulation and other energy controls. New homes will be given a 'star rating' in much the same way that currently applies to whitegoods such as refrigerators.

We also highlight the 2003 MBA Housing Excellence Awards announced during the week. The major award was won, for the third successive year, by builder A. Di Bucci and Son with a superb home in City Beach.

The second MBA Show Home, built by Lifestyle Homes at Iluka, has attracted huge public interest and has now been offered for sale. The MBA is delighted to advise that they expect to confirm shortly that a leading WA home builder has negotiated to build our third MBA Show Home in 2003. The building process will again be a major feature of the Home in WA series, over the year ahead.

Builders or the buying public can get more information on all WA building matters by calling the Master Builders Association on 9322 5133.
