Future Focused
Selection and advice about building products for a better world.


Sustainability is one aspect of a quality home renovation or new build. I advise Australian home owners and builders about green building products: from footings to fitout.


We all share responsibility for conserving earth’s scarce resources, and for protecting our soil, air and water.

Homes should be a pleasure to be in. Everyone benefits when we pay attention to access, air quality, functionality and aesthetics.

Future Focused homes should not cost the earth – literally or figuratively. While there are people who can and do spend millions on building or renovating, my clients have limited budgets and need assistance to work out how they can get the best environmental bang for their buck.

In an imperfect world, where systems are stacked against sustainability and fairness, we need to be practical and pragmatic. In any build or renovation, there will be times for compromise. Few “perfect” products exist, so while it is important to be flexible and creative, we also need to know when to draw the line on our searches for environmentally and socially responsible products.
