Kate is proud to be involved in the Living Future Institute of Australia. In addition, Kate is on the Board of the Global Ecolabelling Network, AUSTRALIAN lifecycle assessment society and is the Australian Chair of the Environmental Labelling Committee for the international standards organisation.
With an educational background in environmental science and sustainable design and professional experience in environmental health and sustainability consulting, Katie is passionate about implementing leading environmental design in new and renovated developments.
Her previous experience in Local Government also gives her valuable expertise in planning regulations, legislative requirements and the relevant Standards, Codes and Guidelines to sustainable design.
Katie’s extensive experience in sustainable design has led to a thorough understanding of the various options available for passive design and resource efficiency from an individual dwelling to precinct scale applications. Her exposure to high density mixed use precincts include the next generation of development in Sydney, namely Central Park, Discovery Point, Ivanhoe and Edmondson Park. These developments posed significant challenges, and Katie worked tirelessly and successfully to deliver on the multiple voluntary and regulatory requirements (e.g. Green Star, Section J of the NCC and SEPP/DCP requirements), precinct infrastructure solutions (e.g. precinct-wide central energy and recycled water treatment plant solutions) and client aspirations in a multi-disciplinary environment.
The majority of her experience has been in the Tertiary Education sector which has allowed her to be involved in some significant and exciting projects, with considerable complexities around stakeholder engagement, governance structures, research and technology integration, working in occupied sites, and the implementation of sustainability initiatives.
Louise is passionate about the challenge of taking an idea or concept and being able to convert it into a real project. Louise looks forward to the day when the best sustainable practice becomes the norm through the design and construction process rather than a specialist area of interest.
