Ballarat Smart Building and Living Expo & a GIVEAWAY!

Talina Edwards Architecture is proud to announce we will be attending Ballarat’s Smart Building and Living Expo once again this year, as part of the statewide events for the Sustainable Living Festival.

Ballarat Buninyong Sustainable Living Festival Daylesford Hepburn Castlemaine

Last year was such a great day – with lots of sustainable products and services – and I met so many lovely people who wanted to chat about their “green” renovating or building plans. See some pics and more about last year’s event here.

Come along on Sunday 22 February from 10am to 4pm at Royal Park in Buninyong (corner of Hedrick and Warrenheip Streets). Last year was a big success, and this year looks set to be even bigger and better! If you come along, be sure to come and say hi to me – I’ll be set-up inside the hall again.

We often have a Special Offer on our website, and to mark the occasion of this year’s expo, I thought it would be a great time to do a little giveaway!

Giveaway FREE prize book rethink building materials ecological housing

imgresWIN a copy of “How To Rethink Building Materials: Creating ecological housing for the designer, builder and homeowner” edited by Dick Clarke, and valued at $39.99.

I think this book is such an invaluable resource – it moves beyond just talking about sustainable homes in terms of ‘energy-efficiency’ and looks more closely at the sustainability of the materials used, covering issues like embodied energy, recycled/recyclable materials, indoor-air quality, life-cycle analysis, case-studies and more – all in an easy-to-read and well-presented format!
