How can you build resilience?

One House is a prototype created by Suncorp, in collaboration with James Cook University, CSIRO and Room11 Architects to help us understand how resilience against extreme weather can be incorporated into house design.

We can’t prevent extreme weather – but we can make our homes better equipped to withstand it. With this in mind, we set out to design, build and test a prototype house that we could learn from. One that would help to show us what it will take to build a safer, more resilient Australia.

Build it Back Better™

In addition to One House, Suncorp Insurance is introducing Build it Back Better™ – an Australian first for Home Insurance. It’s our commitment to help create more resilient homes.

It means that if your home is substantially damaged, we’ll rebuild it stronger with recommended resilience options, in addition to your sum insured, all designed to help withstand severe weather.

This feature is available with all new and renewed Suncorp Home Insurance policies from 25 March 2021 and will provide up to $10,000 worth of resilience options depending on your level of cover*.

*Cover applies to claims with building damage over $50,000 or 10% of sum insured, whichever is highest. Limits, conditions and exclusions apply.
