A powerful new merger between two longstanding professional associations promises to bring a fresh new energy to the sustainable building industry. The Building Designers Association of Australia is pleased to announce an exciting new collaborative merger between the BDAA and ABSA: the Australian Building Sustainability Association.

For everyone involved, this merger is sure to be a fruitful and progressive one for Australia’s building industry and the nation as a whole; representing the combined forces of BDAA, a champion for building designers and the single national association that represents, advocates for, promotes and connects building designers throughout Australia; and ABSA, providing information, accreditation, support and advocacy for professionals to promote and foster building sustainability in Australia.

By joining forces with ABSA, the Leader in thermal performance assessment Industry since 2006, all BDAA members will enjoy ease of access to assessors nationwide as they grow their membership and expand their capability for improved resources and tools. And ABSA members will gain unprecedented power in terms of their reach, advocacy and creative possibilities—not to mention expansive access to a whole new network of sustainable building designers in need of their services.

Yet the benefits of this unprecedented partnership are bound to exceed the boundaries of both associations, flowing outward across the Australian building industry and built environment. Quality thermal performance assessors are needed to complete and validate every sustainable design—and equally skilled building designers are needed to create and formulate these designs. By meeting, networking and collaborating, the members of BDAA and ABSA are bound to form unbeatable teams that fill the Australian built environment with the finest, most sustainable commercial, residential and corporate designs—rendering the environment as a whole more functional, eye-catching and ultimately ecoconscious.
