How to practically implement wellness, sustainability and socially conscious outcomes in new projects.


The property sector is facing an enormous challenge and responsibility to deliver projects that consider wellness, sustainability and socially conscious outcomes. 

Whilst the application of these principles can lower costs, reduce negative environmental impacts and significantly improve our built environment, how can they be practically implemented by the property sector in Australia?
