And the complete development and management of the R value calculator for simply calculating the total insulation R value of wall, roof/ceiling and floor compositions.

We are ongoing members of the technical reference panels for both the BESS and EnviroDevelopment tools and were key contributors to the Urban Development Institute of Australia (UDIA) submission on the Draft Better Apartment Design Standard.

Our team has consulted to councils, numerous government and industry peak bodies, and can help discuss expectations and set the conditions for sustainability focused change within your organisation or the industry you represent.
