Demonstrating the benefits of increasing available green infrastructure in residential homes (BIDA)

Project Member(s): Bentrott, E.

Start year: 2022

Summary: The Olivine ‘Future Home’ project will demonstrate and quantify the human and environmental benefits of integrating blue and green infrastructure into all residential builds throughout Australia. The benefits of blue-green infrastructure are often claimed by government and industry, but few sites demonstrate this for new private residential builds, and even fewer can quantify the level of benefit provided.
