In 2013, research showed that apartment owners, executive committees and building managers were actively searching for ways to improve the energy efficiency of their buildings. The Smart Blocks website, collateral and events were designed to assist, and a year later there are over 300 registered projects improving lighting, heating and cooling and pool management.
In 2013, research showed that apartment owners, executive committees and building managers were actively searching for ways to improve the energy efficiency of their apartment buildings. The main blocker to introducing energy efficiency measures continues to be gaining commitment from the owners’ corporation and prioritising energy efficiency when there are many competing priorities. This information served as a great base to build the Smart Blocks website, collateral and events.
Smart Blocks has been designed and developed with the assistance of apartment owners, strata managers and facilities managers as part of the Sustainable Strata project.
In 12 months Smart Blocks has travelled around the country and talked to hundreds of people who all agree that improving the energy efficiency of apartments is important and essential. On top of that, there are over 300 registered Smart Blocks projects all working away at improving the lighting, heating, and cooling and pool management.
