About us> Partners

The Sustainable Homes program is managed by a State Steering Committee comprising representatives from State Government agencies and key housing industry stakeholders, as listed below:

Queensland Government Lead Agency

 

Queensland Government Partner Agencies

 

Steering Committee Industry Partners

Council and Local Industry Partners

To date, 30 local projects are registered with the Sustainable Homes program, with most of these being from local governments. However some projects have been initiated by urban developers and builders that have subsequently arranged partnerships with their relevant council.

The major contribution that has been required of participating organisations is the sourcing of suitable sites to build the display homes. The responsibility and cost of developing each display home is shared among a coordinated group of stakeholders. A local Project Coordinator is usually assigned to manage the project at the local level and represent the relevant project team.

Acceptance of a local project into the Sustainable Homes program is subject to the design of the home meet Smart Housing Design Objectives as minimum design criteria. These ensure that the homes are designed and built to make them more economically, environmentally and socially sustainable.

The State Steering Committee provides local projects with ongoing assistance during their development, including facilitation, design, construction, promotional advice and technical support.
