Each year in Australia, offices, retail spaces and educational institutions account for close to 40 per cent of energy consumption and are significant contributors to greenhouse gas emissions, playing a role in the environmental damage being experienced by urban centres. One way to accommodate the increasing environmental strain being place on urban centres is to better utilise all available spaces to improve well being and maximise the benefits experienced by building owners, occupants, and neighbouring communities.
