A guided tour through Burwood Brickworks
Set to become the world’s most sustainable shopping centre
Frasers Property Australia’s Burwood Brickworks shopping centre, set out to achieve certification under the most rigorous proven performance standard for buildings, the Living Building Challenge™ (LBC™).
The Living Building Challenge requires all wood used in projects to be FSC certified, from salvaged sources, or intentionally harvested from onsite timber. FSC Australia went on a guided tour through, what is now considered to be one of the most sustainable shopping centres in the world - check out our tour of Burwood brickworks on our instagram story.
The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Sourcing Guide provides an overview of the Living Building Challenge requirements for wood and includes sourcing tips.
