ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY STRATEGIES

ENVIRONMENTAL CERTIFICATION

As engineers, we have a professional and ethical obligation to develop engineering solutions that repair and regenerate both natural and social capital, while maintaining economic health.

Our principles are as follows:

  • Objectively applying engineering knowledge, skill, and expertise to achieve measurable outcomes that enhance both natural and social capital

  • Maintain an up-to-date knowledge and understanding of sustainability principles and practices relevant to their area of practice

Research Projects - Carbon Neutrality

Indesco are committed to design excellence and delivering projects exhibiting high levels of sustainability through aspects of environmental sensitivity waste reduction/minimisation and carbon neutrality, for both economic and environmental benefit.

Indesco are actively striving for carbon neutrality. Our presence in cutting-edge research and modern developments will strengthen our progression toward the objective of a carbon-free future.

Indesco has partnered with the University of New South Wales (UNSW) in a multi-million-dollar project to test Precast Rammed Earth (lime stabilised) and its compliance to relevant design guides and building code.

Indesco are collaborating with partners from industry and academia looking into the Whole Life Design of Carbon Neutral Infrastructure and has committed funding and resources to seeing this project come to life. 

Although our aim is to produce carbon-neutral designs, our intention is to create a deeper understanding of carbon neutrality to ensure every building design precedes the last. With this step-by-step approach, more carbon neutral products and construction techniques can be integrated.

Mass Timber Projects

Indesco continues to remain at the forefront of structural engineering in Australia with their design capabilities for mass timber structures.

Indesco has assisted its clients with feasibility studies, detail design and procurement/construction advice for mass timber buildings.

Our technical knowledge and experience have enabled our clients to maximise the lettable area for various buildings while also providing the end user with the biophilic design benefits.
