Build Back Smarter is a collaborative effort.  Beacon is grateful to the following organisations for their ongoing contributions to the Build Back Smarter project:


Insurers will fund the earthquake repairs as per their policies but the additional upgrades to improve the home’s performance will be funded in part by Warm Up New Zealand and in part by the project.
