Thu. 13 October 2016, 12:30 pm – 1:30 pm AEDT
Come and investigate some of the key features of the first 6 Star Green Star- Education Design v1 accredited building in the Illawarra.
The SBRC building was designed and constructed based on the principles of the Living Building Challenge, pushing the boundaries of sustainable design and construction with hopes to inspire communities throughout Australia to take action on sustainability.
Inspired by the Illawarra Flame Tree’s spring time renewal and transformation, the University of Wollongong, together with TAFE NSW Illawarra Institute, developed the innovative Illawarra Flame House, the first home in any Solar Decathlon competition that address the issue of upgrading existing building stock to be an award winning net zero energy home.
