The project endeavours to derive a conceptual design of a Sustainable Energy-Waste Solution for the residential sector, based on innovations and lessons learned from the
green building sector, specifically the 'Smart & Sustainable Homes Program' (SSHP) in
QLD, as well as those employed in the city of Melbourne's 'council House 2' (CH2).

Various techniques will then be used to compare the design with CH2, which has been recognised as a world leader in sustainability through receiving a 6 Star rating under the
Green star rating system.

In order to assess the requirements of the system, the conceptual design of an hypothetical house was undertaken and analysed in order to determine both the load
required and the potential sustainability of the system.

As these are conceptual designs, they focus mainly on the aspects of each design task which have the greatest impact on the system as a whole. Thus, things such as in depth
wiring, plumbing and fit out information is not included, unless it specifically informs some important aspect of the system.
