VBRRA Affordable Building Expos

6 Nov 2010 from 10.00am to 2.00pm at Whittlesea, Marysville, Kinglake & Gippsland


Are you thinking about rebuilding after the February 2009 bushfires?

A series of building expos are being held for bushfire-affected communities.

The expos are designed to assist people who are considering building in bushfire-affected areas by providing information and advice about:

  • affordable homes,
  • specialised products &
  • financial advice.


Recent winners of the Affordable Demonstration Homes design competition, Wheeler Design & Construction with architect Visionary Design Development Pty Ltd and Link Building Group Pty Ltd with Buckerfield Architects will be on hand to provide information about their BAL 40 affordable house designs.


People will also have the opportunity to look through the builders' new display homes as part of the Marysville and Kinglake expos.


Representatives from the Victorian Building Commission, Sustainability Victoria, Bendigo Bank and VBRRA's Free Rebuilding Advisory Service will also be available to provide advice at the expos.

Everyone is welcome to come along to one of the below expos to find out more about affordable rebuilding options in bushfire-affected areas.  Refreshments and activities for the kids will also be available.


The Victorian Building Commission will also be running Owner-Builder Workshops in conjunction with the Marysville and Kinglake Expos from 10.30am - 1.00pm, for more information call Carina de Graaf on 9618 9185 or email
