"The 6 Star House is a partnership between UCOL, the Palmerston North City Council and United Way, an independent, not-for-profit Organisation that encourages generosity by brokering resources (money, time and skills) between individuals, businesses and the community.

As a partnership, the 6 Star House project is a first in New Zealand. United Way will benefit from the sale of the house. Chief Executive Don Oliver says the project delivers the three pillars or triple bottom line of sustainability – environmental, social equity and economic demands. “It also fits with United Way’s policy of working alongside individuals, businesses and the community to provide resources in local areas.”"
