Course outline

This seminar will focus on the carbon modeling and sustainable design of the Institute's 41 Exhibition Street development in Melbourne. Through a detailed case study it will be shown how a very small CBD site can be transformed to deliver a high quality, highly sustainable, innovative commercial building. The project, concept and total carbon modeling of the building will be analysed in detail.
