Shoalhaven, NSW shapes FORTIS House project for fire-resilient homes with community feedback

Shoalhaven, NSW FORTIS House Project Fire-Resilient Homes

In Progress

Shoalhaven residents are invited to a community design workshop hosted by the Bushfire Building Council of Australia. This workshop turns local experiences with bushfires into design concepts for rebuilt homes. A FORTIS House survey asks respondents to provide their home design preferences and goals. Free blueprints and guides resulting from this feedback allow for customizable home construction achieving the highest Bushfire Attack Level rating.
