About Us

This website is established and supported by the programme of “Environmental sustainability education program for the NSW construction industry”. The programme is funded by NSW Environmental Trust to the University of Canberra. The research team is led by Dr. Larry Xiancun Hu, School of Design and the Built Environment, Faculty of Arts & Design, University of Canberra.

What will We Do?

The program will improve the awareness and skills of environmental sustainability for construction managers, engineers, and workers in New South Wales. An informative and visual guidebook will be developed by combining theory, practice, and assessment for mapping sustainable construction success.

More than 10 free advisory, mentoring, workshops, presentation, and improvement processes will be implemented by cooperating and interacting with local associations, communities, and large and small construction companies. The environmental significance embodies itself in reducing energy and water consumption; decreasing emissions and pollution; improving waste recycling; using low-carbon, recyclable and renewable materials; and minimising construction activity impacts on ecosystems and wildlife. It can help support threatened species recovery and benefit climate change mitigation objectives.
