Australian-European research into sustainable construction
Green Star is considered an international success story of how the construction industry can voluntarily move towards higher levels of building performance.
Dr Jeroen van der Heijden, a Dutch architect and political scientist, is leading a four year research project that will study Green Star and comparable projects in Australia and Europe. His research will extract lessons to help strengthen current good practices in the buildings sector, and to develop even better practices.
Dr van der Heijden is interested in your experiences with Green Star – as a designer, builder, owner, or user of a Green Star-rated building. Please email Dr van der Heijden to participate in this research, or to find out more.
The research is based within the Australian National University, a member of the GBCA, and the University of Amsterdam (the Netherlands). Read more.
