Ecological Sustainability Roof Gardens, Vertical Gardens & Green Facades

4 Formal CPD Hours

7:30 am Registration and Networking

08:00 am Start


8:00 am – Integrated Design and Project Delivery of Green Facades
Warwick Savvas
GBCA Approved Point

Green facades have the potential to transform our cities.


Globally, green facades are increasingly being seen as a response to urbanisation as a way to bring natural systems back into our cities.


We are seeing large scale green façade projects spring up all around the world.


This presentation will focus on how to design and implement green facades to ensure they deliver the benefits that they can provide, and ensure they are be successful, sustainable and long lasting.


Through our practice we are refining the technology of ensuring these vertical gardens not only survive, but thrive in Australia’s harsh climates.


The presentation will describe the collaborative multi-disciplinary approach to green facades, and show case building design & technology, horticulture, and the art and science of green infrastructure.


8:55 am – Green Roofs and Green Walls   

Diresh Singh
GBCA Approved Point

This presentation will focus on the benefits of installing and maintaining a successful Green Roof or Green Wall specific to the Australian conditions.


9:50 – Designing a Structural Solution for a Green Facade
Peter Bottero
GBCA Approved Point

Green facades can be challenging elements to implement. The inputs that go into their design have an impact on both the green facade and the supporting building structure. We will look at this from both a structural and aesthetic perspective and will also cover the different types of green facade system designs, and how they integrate with the plant species, with a focus on the current designs that are being used.


10:45 – The Day (lighting) of the Triffids
Carl Gray
GBCA Approved Point

The popularity of green walls, green facades, and indoor landscapes in has rapidly increased over the last few years; and designers and clients’ expectations of these have been raised.


Everyone knows that plants need light to grow, but there is a lot of confusion and misinformation about how much and what sort of light is needed; and where and when.   And getting it wrong can mean risking death (quite literally)!


Where previously growth lighting involved a lot of trial an error; it is now possible to be accurate and effective in predicting and designing the lighting environment for green infrastructure.


The presenter will demystify growth lighting; explaining how natural daylight, white light (including LED), and horticultural light sources can be used to meet plants’ lighting needs, while integrating the project’s architecture.
