The CRC for Low Carbon Living has produced a series of practical guides summarising best practice in various phases of the building lifecycle—construction, retrofit, operations—for a range of building types in the residential and commercial sectors and at the level of precincts. Other Guides will cover areas such as Landscape, Value-chain and Urban Heat.
This guide provides methods for retrofitting commercial buildings to improve performance while reducing energy and carbon use.
A convergence of digital innovation with advanced knowledge from the fields of urban planning and design, social science, computer science, engineering and construction has been harnessed in this guide to create an advanced information platform for transformative built environment planning and design focused on precinct scale modelling and performance assessment.
This document provides practical guidance for built environment professionals and regulatory agencies seeking to optimise development projects to moderate urban microclimates and mitigate urban heat island effects in major urban centres across a range of climates in Australia.
