The University of Wollongong's Sustainable Building Research Centre is currently under construction, and is due to being completed by mid-2013. The Living Building Challenge comprises seven performance areas; water, energy, health, materials, equity and beauty. Austech provided more than 500sqm2 of Polyboard Enviro 300, in both the 50mm and 75mm thickness, for rooftop and plaza deck insulation.
