RP2001: Scoping Study - Precinct Design & Assess Tools

Project leader name: 
Professor Peter Newton
Project status: 
Project period: 
12/2012 to 11/2013

This project evaluated urban precinct assessment tools to identify the level of collaboration, standardisation of information, data and processes required to develop a 21st century design tool. The aim of such a tool is to evaluate the carbon imprint and sustainability of current and future built environments, and to provide a common environmental rating system for urban precincts. A standardised system will improve the current fragmented approach to precinct assessment.
