Ex stars of The Block land award in first season of new TV show

Renovate or Rebuild is going into season two filming towards the end of the year.
A TV show co-hosted by former QLD contestants off The Block Michael and Carlene Duffy and Jimmy and Tam Wilkins has won an award considered the Oscars of the sustainability sector.
Renovate or Rebuild, where more energy efficient, healthy and comfortable options were provided to owners looking to upgrade their properties, was named national winner of the 2022 Communications for Impact Award for the 33rd National Banksia Sustainability Awards.

The show’s creator and executive producer, James McGregor, said the show teaches viewers about important concepts like passive solar design, insulation, energy efficiency and solar energy systems.
“What makes this show different is that we want people to get excited about things like insulation, home energy ratings and electric vehicles the same way they would get excited about a new kitchen benchtop.”
On site with Renovate or Rebuild co-hosts Block Michael and Carlene Duffy.
The programs green focus puts it up there with ABC’s War on Waste, which is the only other TV show to win a Banksia Award.
The Duffy and Wilkins couples have thrived on the sustainability focus, with planning for season two currently underway and filming to start late this year.
Each episode sees the former Blockheads match the clients brief and budget with the aim of creating a stylish design that’s energy efficient, healthy and comfortable, with the homeowners then judging which of the two options to go with – either to renovate or rebuild.
