Karen Bayne, Chris Kane.

This report provides an overview of the NOW house design process from a review of project communications and documentation regarding the NOW house during the period July 2002- June 2004.

The NOW house concept had the objective of meeting the requirements of a ‘post-Kyoto’ (2012-2015) market environment, whilst being constrained to using materials and technologies which were currently available or able to be achieved in the present technological environment during 2002-2003.
