Precinct Information Modelling for Better Carbon Management in the Built Environment

September 15, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 3:30 pm

With bSA as a key sponsor, the CRC for Low Carbon Living is hosting a symposium that will showcase how Precinct Information Modelling (PIM) can help reduce carbon emissions in the built environment.

Anyone wishing to attend should contact the CRC for a complimentary invitation, with an indication of the reason for your interest (since seating is limited) –  CRC for Low Carbon Living

The event will integrate theoretical foundations with practical knowledge and research outcomes, with aim of contributing to better urban planning, design and life-cycle management.

The symposium program will include:

  • A demonstration of PIM for precinct planning and analysis, incorporating integrated energy, transport, waste and water (ETWW) demand forecasting and scenario planning, and using CRCLCL living laboratories as case studies.
  • The launch of a National Position Paper that articulates the efficacy of modelling the built environment at the scale of a precinct.
  • The launch of the final research report from the CRCRLCL project that investigated retrofitting low carbon precincts through the Broadway living laboratory case study in Sydney.
  • An explanation of how PIM can be utilised in the context of national and global developments in modelling standards, and the potential long-term impact on these standards.
  • A panel discussion on the significance of PIM, featuring senior industry and government representatives.
