A Liveability Framework to improve real life impacts for higher density homes

The Sustainable Built Environment National Research Centre (SBEnrc) is the successor to the CRC for Construction Innovation.

The vision for the SBEnrc is to be an enduring world-class research and knowledge broker in sustainable infrastructure and building design, construction and management to enhance the performance of Australia’s built environment industry.

Liveability Framework

The SBEnrc project team have now finalised the Liveability Framework for Medium to High-density Social and Affordable Housing, to be used to develop project and precinct-based, value-focussed standards and targets to drive adoption of better outcomes and promote community acceptance of delivering whole-of-life solutions.

Research outcomes are provided through two case studies, in Western Australia (WA) and Queensland (QLD).

The Final Industry Report and six-minute video are available at the following links, along with all the accompanying research reports:
