In July 2018, the Australian Sustainable Built Environment Council (ASBEC) and ClimateWorks Australia released Built to Perform - An industry led pathway to a zero carbon ready building code, the report for the Building Code Energy Performance Trajectory Project. This report builds on Built to Perform by summarising results most relevant to regions in Northern Australia - broadly defined as Queensland, Northern Territory and regions of Western Australia north of the Gascoyne. New buildings in the Northern Australia region present unique opportunities and challenges, due to factors including a warmer and more humid climate, different construction materials and climate-responsive design practices. These factors have been considered in assessing key opportunities for this region.
