FORTIS HOUSE

Helping bushfire-affected residents save
time and money by providing a highly resilient, sustainable, affordable and adaptable building design, for free.

The Bushfire Building Council of Australia is working with community members in Shoalhaven to develop the bushfire-resilient FORTIS House.

Available in November 2021, FORTIS House will make the re-building process easier, with free architectural drawings, construction manual and consumer handbook that shows community members, building designers and trades how to adapt the design to a homeowner’s site requirements, style and required BAL rating.

This world-first community-led design is an opportunity to lend a hand to recovering communities around Australia and showcase the Shoalhaven region internationally.

Through our community design project, participants have:

Heard from BBCA’s team of trusted bushfire resilience and sustainability experts

Shared their experiences of their lifestyle in Shoalhaven and what ‘home’ means to them

Contributed to an innovative project that will help their community recover faster and stronger

Had their questions answered, found inspiration and gained confidence for their bushfire building journey
