We are delighted to introduce our two newly appointed Board Members, John Beurle and Joe Merceica!

John is an enthusiastic advocate for Passive House, and is the owner/builder of a certified low energy Passive House building in central Victoria. After deciding on a career change, John took the Passive House Consulting/Designers course and created his own small business. As Principal Consultant of Passive House Services, he works with clients on their own Passive House dream.

Joe brings over 30 years experience in commercial and residential construction, his expertise and passion in the building industry being instrumental to the growth of Blue Eco Homes (previously Joe Mercieca Constructions). He is leading the way in sustainable construction, which has naturally led to his interest in Passive House.

Joe and his wife Merylese Mercieca built the first certified passive house to flame zone regulations in the Blue Mountains.
