This project aims to investigate the environmental impacts of construction in Australia through the development of a sophisticated hybrid environmental assessment model. The project will assist in identifying the most significant environmental impacts, critical areas for mitigation efforts and informing environmental policy and programs within the Australian construction industry. The development of one of the most sophisticated and comprehensive models for assessing environmental impacts ever produced will enable cost- and time-efficient evaluation of multiple environmental impacts at a high level of detail and completeness. This will lead to considerable improvements to the environmental performance of Australian construction projects.
