Formatted Abstract/Summary
The main aim of this project is to use Quality of Life (QOL) approach to investigate sustainable housing in South East Queensland. Sustainable development models such as balance theory suggest that the benefit of sustainability is to integrate social, economic and environmental needs in the context of maintaining or improving the Quality of Life. The argument centres on the need to address the current paradox where high quality of life in South East Queensland not traded against high environmental impact. The research addresses the question of how to maintain Quality of Life whilst reducing environmental impacts through both technical and non-technical systems such as occupant behaviour.
