ABOUT THE SPEAKERS //
Gillian Armstrong //
Gillian's current research evaluates the extent to which building regulation presents significant barriers to adaptive reuse in South Australia. Her presentation will discuss the political context in which adaptive reuse exists, and how this sits with industry rhetoric of preventing greater reuse of our obsolete buildings.
Dr David Whaley //
David will present about a recently completed small-scale research project that investigated the cost and benefit of retrofitting and improving the energy efficiency (star rating) of existing small, single storey houses in South Australia, built before the introduction of minimum housing energy performance standards.
