Sustainable Communities & Infrastructure
Paving Australia’s way: sustainable communities and infrastructure
Sustainable, high-quality buildings connected by a network of supporting sustainable, high-quality infrastructure are the key to healthy, happy and prosperous communities, and Australia must make the design and delivery of sustainable urban infrastructure a top priority if our nation is to remain competitive in an increasingly globalised and fast-paced world.
Join the GBCA, Infrastructure Sustainability Council of Australia (ISCA) and a host of built environment leaders on Thursday 28 November for an interactive exploration of the issues surrounding the creation of successful and sustainable urban communities for Australia’s future.
