We are a leading Ecologically Sustainable Development consultancy with offices in Sydney and Melbourne, spending most of our time working with Architects and their clients to reduce our environmental footprint through efficient and well reasoned building design. Although we have a touch of ‘greenie’ at heart, our consultants all come from either Architectural or Engineering backgrounds and hold degrees in their relevant fields.

Sustainability Management Plan

For larger projects in Victoria, you need a Sustainability Management Plan to be approved by your local city council. We can deliver a Sustainability Management Plan (SMP) via the local and national assessment tools we have got ourselves acquainted to. In Victoria we use the Built Environment Sustainability Scorecard (BESS) assessment tool for your residential dwellings.

The BESS assessment tool replaces the two former tools (Sustainable Design Scorecard and STEPS) used previously by the Moreland City Council and by the City of Port Philip.
