Throughout history, buildings have changed to address social needs. A dramatic example: the advent of the skyscraper a century ago, which exploited the new technology of steel framing to overcome the scarcity of real estate in teeming Australian cities. Suddenly real estate extended into a third dimension, enabling extraordinary growth in a contained footprint.
Today’s building industry appears to be entering another era of change, with a view toward minimizing a different kind of footprint: the energy, carbon, and environmental footprint of commercial and residential buildings.
The industry’s aim is for ‘zero carbon’ buildings, but which buildings are at the forefront of leading the race towards this ever tightening goal?
Alex Bruce, Director of eTool, will present the case for the Residential sector and Oliver Grimaldi, Senior ESD Consultant at Cundall will present the case for the Commercial sector.
Venue: Cundall + eTool Office, Level 1, 40-44 Pier Street, Perth, 6000
