CARBON CONSCIOUS SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT
Some of those more savvy design and building types are already well underway in planning for the Federal Government’s new carbon tax and how it will impact Queensland business. DC8 Studio, a local design and architectural firm, is out of the blocks early in producing carbon conscious building and design initiatives. One of the firm’s Directors, Marianne McKenzie, was in Sydney last week as part of the Green Cities 2012 Conference aimed at ‘thinkers’ and sustainable designers.
Marianne is a Green Star accredited professional and is at the forefront of the sustainable building debate. Like her other DC8 Studio colleagues she was a senior player in Chris Freeman’s Mirvac in-house design team before she deciding with a handful of other ex Mirvac senior players to set up DC8 Studio.
Watch this space for some information from Marianne on the talk.
