Theme: Clever Housing - lessons from ten star case studies
Keynote Speaker: Tim Adams, Architect, f2 Design
Geelong Sustainability's monthly social networking event – Geelong Green Drinks – is a great way to learn about what's new and happening in our region and to connect with others working in the sustainability sector.
Geelong is one of the fastest growing regions in Victoria and the growth looks set to continue or even accelerate. How can we balance the competing demands for more residential housing, improved infrastructure, public transport whilst protecting our natural environment and responding to climate change. Clever and creative solutions must be found. Clever housing will be an essential part of the solution.
Clever housing is comfortable to live in, economical to run, has a low carbon footprint and is no more costly to build. Really? If you are not sure that it's possible then make sure you attend our next Green Drinks event when Tim Adams will explain how the benefits of building and living in an environmentally friendly home now far outweigh the costs.
Tim Adams has 40 years of building design experience and early adoption of energy rating tools making his company F2 Design a leader in the field of energy efficient housing and zero energy designs. In 2011 when President of the Building Designers Association of Victoria (BDAV), he instigated the highly successful BDAV 10 Star Sustainable Design Challenge. Currently he's providing technical advice on thermal performance to various designers including the project architects developing the Cape Paterson eco village, which won the Premier's Sustainability Prize in 2012.
