Sustainability & Building Performance

Shaping the future of communities

Our communities are encountering crucial challenges in advocating sustainability. Even with the advancements of climate change, pollution of the biosphere and oceans, there’s still an opportunity for positive change. The use of innovative technologies, ecosystem rejuvenation, and holistic, unified planning by community leaders—that’s how we can work to transform the future of our communities.

We have faith in sustainable designs to go beyond, helping clients realise the full potential of projects in terms of life cycle costs, energy efficiency, and carbon reduction while enhancing human health and wellness. We use informed research to design holistically, minimising ecological impact and resource waste and optimising community health.

A world-first timber design

We’ve joined forces with LCI to deliver Atlassian’s world-first tallest hybrid timber building development in Sydney, New South Wales. Working cohesively, our team will support the building's goal of achieving 50 percent reduction in integrated carbon and energy, as related to traditional construction. Furthermore, the organisation will be operating on 100 percent renewable power with zero emissions and include sustainability features such as energy-efficient designs, planted terraces, and natural ventilation.

Barrack Place

The Barrack Place design supports the health and wellbeing of occupants through a strong commitment to sustainability. Awarded a platinum rating by the International WELL Building Institute, the structure was recognised for its design performance, construction, operation, and—most importantly—its focus on sustaining occupant comfort. Our team is proud to have incorporated innovative solutions and improvements in construction and materiality that helped achieve a 6 Star rated outcome. Read More

Sustainable building: The Passivhaus approach

Passivhaus (or Passive House) is a standard for achieving energy efficiency and thermal comfort in a building to the greatest practical extent. Originating in Germany, Passive House is now a global concept reshaping the way we approach construction. We can guide you through the complexities of Passive House certification, from conceptualisation to realisation. Read More

Focused on sustainability

We support the sustainable transformation of Australia's built environment through our membership with Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA). The quality of our built environment will play a crucial role in meeting global climate change targets, and our partnership with GBCA symbolises our commitment to sustainability now and beyond. We recognise and support the vision to create healthy, resilient, and positive places for our communities to thrive.
