Renew showcases Australia’s most bushfire-resilient homes with free online event series

As part of ongoing work to support communities rebuilding after bushfire, Renew is showcasing homes that exemplify resilient design elements and building practices that extend the understanding of best practice beyond the complicated and variable (BAL) Bushfire Attack Level rating system. In the Beyond BAL event series, Renew will be speaking to the people who designed, built, or live in these homes.  

The free, online events will showcase homes across four key areas: Budget-friendly bushfire resilient homes, homes that showcase bushfire resilience innovation, homes that are earth-coupled to enhance protection from bushfire, and homes that have been built in areas of high vegetation. 

Each event will discuss a number of homes in detail and will feature a panel of architects and bushfire experts from around the country. There will be plenty of time for questions from the audience.  

As Australia approaches a severe bushfire season, this event series is a great way to learn some ways to make your home or future build more bushfire resilient.
