Event description

Description

More and more research showcases that learning outcomes are closely related to the quality of the learning environment in which people occupy. Classrooms and facilities which have been designed for high levels of comfort and indoor air quality not only support student creativity and mood, and boost cognative performance and also tend to also boast impressive sustainability measures.

Our upcoming ASBN Spotlight event will showcase two local projects highlighting opportunities in sustainable design within learning environments. Presenting on the night will be:

David Wrench will present an overview of the Hivve, an advanced modular classroom providing schools with a zero net energy learning space that is scalable, flexible, affordable and fast. Each Hivve building is embedded with Hivve iQ, an integrated renewable energy system with smart IOT technology to provide schools with fully climate controlled, healthy learning environments with lower energy costs and zero CO2 emissions. A Hivve modular building was recently installed at Alberton Primary School, a first for South Australia.

Lewis Hewton & Wayne Grivell will present an overview of University of South Australia's Cancer Research Institute building. The project has received a LEED Gold rating from the US Green Building Council, showcasing a strong commitment to sustainable, healthy and energy efficient outcomes. A technically complex building, the project has established a world class, high performance facility that is at the forefront of international pharmacy and cancer research and allied health education.

Following the presentations, the ASBN will hold a Q&A session between presenters and audience.

Dinners from Cafe Troppo and wine from Whistling Kite Wines will be available, along with plenty of networking time. We hope to see you there!

Doors open at 6.00pm, the event proceedings to begin at 6.30pm.

This event has been submitted for CPD points by the Green Building Council of Australia.
