Eco Design Advisors help improve the comfort and health of New Zealanders by providing free independent advice on home performance.

Working for local councils, their advice can range from new builds and significant renovations to behaviour change and simple retrofits. The service can take the form of a conversation around a table or a comprehensive on-site home assessment.

EDAs work closely with EECA, BRANZ, and leading industry players to provide the best available information to home owners, landlords, tenants and the building industry.

The award-winning service was established in 2006 and is offered by the following councils: Dunedin, Christchurch, Nelson, Lower Hutt, Palmerston North, New Plymouth and Auckland.
