“As a team of concerned professionals, we reject the concept of energy efficient building, where one seeks to minimise the energy consumtion in a building that is designed to require high carbon-emitting refrigerative air conditioning in order to maintain comfort.  We aim to achieve year-round thermal comfort primarily through controlled ventilation, thermal storage and radiant heat. This is achievable in most Australian climate zones with traditional vernacular design.  We aim to do even better with modern materials and design.   At the same time, we seek to address the issues of moisture management and air quality.  The CRCLCL has a critical role to play in this effort by developing manuals and standards of practice."
