ArchiTECH Thursday 17 February - Environmental responsibility - FREE for members

In order to produce an ESD specification, appropriate design decisions must first be made. A non-sustainable design cannot be transformed into a sustainable one just by specifying. It is, however, possible to improve on the environmental impact of any design through the specification by mandating low toxicity materials, energy and water efficient appliances, and so on.

NATSPEC was formed in 1975 by the Australian Institute of Architects. Richard Choy, CEO NATSPEC, will outline how the specification can be used to help improve environmental quality today. Delegates will gain understanding of the current National Competency Standards for specification writing and the environmental impacts of the products presented.
