Are you studying a Master of Architecture or Construction Management and planning to do a research project as part of your degree? If so, an exciting opportunity exists to undertake a small research project (over one or two semesters) conducting a quantitative analysis of the 5×4 Project, as seen on the current series of Grand Designs Australia.

The 5×4 Project is a small, recently completed house located in East Melbourne. The design and construction of the house has a strong environmental focus, using a range of innovative materials, systems and construction techniques. The research project will use the detailed quantitative data collected during the construction process to analyse the environmental performance of the as-built house.

If interested, please contact Dr Robert Crawford at rhcr@unimelb.edu.au .
