Navigating Alternative Plasterboard Systems

Date: Monday 4 July 2022
Time: 12.00pm

Master Builders have organised in conjunction with the Institute of Architects a webinar on Navigating Alternative Plasterboard Systems. We’ve brought together an expert panel of speakers to help builders, designers and consent authorities to understand what’s available now and how best to navigate the approvals requirements for alternative products. 

The panel will cover:

  • Available plasterboard alternatives and the supporting technical information
  • Getting alternative plasterboards approved on projects and the consenting requirements, specifically what’s happening in Auckland
  • Building with plasterboard alternatives

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
