The promoters are looking for a development that will combine innovation and sustainability and respond to existing and anticipated lifestyle, health and educational needs of the community.

The competition is to select a preferred consortium to deliver the House 4 Life project, the consortia being made up of design team, private sector developer, RSL, construction industry and representation from the environmental technologies sector.
The competition is open (internationally) to architect-led teams. These consortia could comprise architects, private sector house builders, RSL’s, the construction industry and renewal technologies industry.
