Welcome to SBE16 Sydney

SBE16 Sydney is a Sustainable Built Environment Conference 2016 Series focused on developing High-Performance Built Environments. The principle objective of this conference is to drive innovation in design, planning and management of high-performance built environments, as well as promote education and collaboration in the field. The conference is organised by the Faculty of Built Environment, UNSW Australia, and Cooperative Research Centre (CRC) for Low Carbon Living, Australia.

High-Performance Built Environments aim to reduce the environmental impact of built environments, to improve public health, and to create more resilient buildings and cities. High-Performance Built Environments are concerned not only with building design and urban planning, but also tackle challenges relating to health, comfort and well-being of people in buildings and cities. Topics covered in the conference will address opportunities and challenges faced in the built environment, including:

  • Design Innovation and Collaboration
  • Performance Assessment in Built Environments
  • Built Environment Resilience
  • Smart Built Environments
  • High Performance Materials and Emerging Technology
  • Government Sustainability Policy
  • Education for Sustainable Built Environments
  • Industry, Government and University Collaboration

The conference is a full-paper peer-reviewed conference and accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings under an ISBN number.
