Standards Australia is seeking building and ventilation experts for two new projects. The only requirement to be involved is expertise in at least one of the key areas outlined below. Both projects are expected to be completed over the course of six to 12 months with support from key government agencies, industry groups, and technical experts.
Standards Australia is creating a new a new technical specification to provide a framework for the design and installation, testing, compliance, and verification of buildings. This initiative is supported by the Australian Institute of Refrigeration, Air Conditioning and Heating.
Professionals in Australia with experience in the following areas are encouraged to participate:
- Building commissioning
- Facility managers
- Building services
- Mechanical engineering
- Building design
- Fire engineering
- Building compliance and verification
- Hydraulic engineering
- Building regulation
- Property owners
- Building maintenance
- Energy performance specialists
Interested individuals are encouraged to send their CV and area(s) of interest to firstname.lastname@example.org by October 31. Participants will be selected based on relevant skills and experience.
Thermal Performance of Buildings
The second initiative is the creation of a handbook to provide guidance on the application of AS/NZS ISO 9972:2015, Thermal performance of buildings – Determination of air permeability of buildings – Fan pressurization method. This work is supported by the Air Filtration and Ventilation Association of Australia.
Professionals in Australia with experience in the following areas are encouraged to get involved:
- Air permeability testing
- Thermal performance of buildings
- Building forensics
- Building science
- Building envelope commissioning
Interested individuals are encouraged to send their CV and area(s) of interest to email@example.com by October 31. Participants will be selected based on relevant skills and experience.
Both projects are managed through the Incubator – an initiative established in 2017 to bring the speed and agility of a start-up to Standards Australia.
