Organized by leading international building materials company James Hardie, the competition included 40 teams of builders from around Australia. The teams competed in six construction challenges using pre-constructed wall frames protected with DuPont™ Tyvek® HomeWrap®. The competition attracted hundreds of spectators, including construction industry representatives, media and television crews from Renovation Rescue, an Australian building renovation program.
DuPont Australia’s participation was a result of its ongoing relationship with James Hardie, as Tyvek® HomeWrap® is recognized for adding value in wall systems that use a number of the company’s products.
“Participating in this event has provided the DuPont™ Tyvek® HomeWrap® brand with excellent exposure to hundreds of builders and construction companies across Australia,” said Thomas Boles, sales and marketing manger of building envelopes, DuPont Australia.
