A HOLISTIC INTEGRATED DESIGN APPROACH FOR BUILDING ENVELOPES INCORPORATING SUSTAINABILITY, SECURITY AND SAFETY
Grant number: LP110100429 | Funding period: 2011 - 2015
This project aims to develop a highly secure and sustainable facade system for buildings with a significant enhancement over other conventional facades in terms of both protection against extreme loads and life cycle energy performance. The outcome of this project can be used to improve the sustainability and safety of buildings in Australia.
