The Sustainable Buildings Research Centre is a 6 Star Green Star- Education Design v1 accredited, multi-disciplinary facility that hosts a wide range of research and industry collaborations to address the challenges of making buildings sustainable. We are pioneering new approaches to retrofitting techniques to create more effective places to live and work. Located at the University of Wollongong's Innovation Campus, this beautiful new centre is alive with student research as a Living Laboratory and thrives on collaboration with industry. The 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.
The aim of the SBRC is to research, collaborate, and link with industry to meet the challenge of improving the energy efficiency of our new and existing building stock. The SBRC will lead the way in sustainable building research through delivery of advanced retrofit technologies, integrated component testing, skills training and researching the impacts of day to day behaviours of building occupants.
