Australia’s leading Universities; leading excellence, leading debate.
The Group of Eight (Go8) is a coalition of Australian universities, intensive in research and comprehensive in general and professional education. We meet with our Go8 cohort bi-annually to benchmark, share project successes and challenges, and identify opportunities to collaborate.
Building For the Future (2017), showcases the world class, high-performance, sustainable facilities which redefine best practice in tertiary education buildings. Built for the future, these spaces move beyond basic environmental sustainable design principles to demonstrate what is possible when clever technology and inspired design intersect.
The publication features the University of Adelaide's 6-star Green Star building, Ingkarni Wardli.
The Living Laboratory Publication (2015) showcases examples of the Living Laboratory concept across Go8 university campuses – linking teaching and research activities to operational sustainability. Project examples include biodiversity and water quality research, renewable energy test sites, promotion of ethical purchasing and auditing buildings for environmental performance and indoor quality.
The publication features University of Adelaide projects: Edible Garden, Hub Central and Campus Building Retro-greening.
