Building a Sustainable Car Park


In light of the Coronavirus pandemic, Parking Australia has made the decision to suspend all networking events until further notice.

Car Parks are not usually thought of when discussing sustainable buildings, but they do have many advantages over other commercial buildings. Car parks are the ideal structures to meet an organisation’s sustainability targets. Solar PV, energy efficient lighting, water harvesting and Electronic Vehicle charging, are just some of the features that car parks of the future will incorporate.

Our speaker, Renae Sambrooks, has a vast understanding and experience in delivering sustainable car park projects. She will not only explore sustainable projects that can be undertaken, but also look at recent case studies, outlining both the environmental and financial benefits that have been achieved.

Whether you’re from local government, the retail sector, private parking operations or a university, this event is not to be missed.

Registration opens at 2.45pm for a 3pm start. Renae’s presentation will be followed by networking drinks and canapés. Free of charge for members to attend. $60 for non-members. Click here to register
