Helping to shape the future National Construction Code


Our passionate Director, scientist Jenny Edwards, has been invited to sit on the Residential Technical Advisory Group for the Building Code Energy Performance Trajectory Project.  This project is a partnership between the Australian Sustainable Built Environment Council (ASBEC) and ClimateWorks Australia.

"The Building Code Energy Efficiency Trajectory Project will outline increases in the National Construction Code energy provisions and show the way towards optimal long term goals for all building types. This will support governments to adopt the policies we need, while sending a strong regulatory signal to provide the certainty needed by industry. An agreed trajectory will support market development of technologies and services to reduce energy use and emissions across the building sector."

The intended outcome of the project is to deliver higher performance buildings that result in emissions reductions, improved energy productivity, more efficient use of energy infrastructure, energy cost savings and improved health and comfort for building occupants. Intentions that align perfectly with those of Light House.

Jenny has extensive experience in this field (read more about that here) and joins a multi-disciplinary group comprised of 11 experts in building design, construction and operation, energy performance in buildings, building energy modelling and cost-benefit analysis. 

Go you good thing!
