Beacon Pathway Ltd

Karen Bayne, Chris Kane


One of a three reports which document in detail the project communications, decision making and committee process involved in the NOW Home design.  It reflects the early design period July 2002- June 2004 prior to Beacon taking over the project.  Superseded by later iterations of NOW Home procedures which reflect monitoring and actual experience of research homes, and consequent changes in focus and direction by Beacon.   Part 1 covers the development of the design brief - this was prior to seeking building consent and does not always reflect the home as built.
