Low-rise Live - A High Life Expo event
Sat. 20 May 2017, 11:15 am – 12:15 pm AEST
Sustainable low rise apartment living is not as hard as you think.
Come along and see how a real live audit is completed on a low rise apartment block. We will be conducting a live audit of a 1970’s construction located in Armadale, Victoria. Located on this site are 2 buildings each consisting of 3 levels and 12 apartments. Preliminary review has shown that the majority of the grounds is devoted to hard surface car park and a small garden is located at the front of the property. Current water consumption is 2.95 million litres per year at an average of 337 L per apartment per day. Common area electricity consumption is approximately 5 kWh per day or around 1,800 kWh per year. Both buildings have large areas of unshaded flat roofing.
Using a real life example, you'll find out what you need to get started in your low rise apartment building. Learn how to implement change, how to keep the momentum going and make progress by taking action. The live audit will include a review of all utilities, waste, solar, common areas, gardens and surrounds, as well as a brief discussion of individual apartment sustainability.
Of course you'll also get a chance to ask your questions!
