University of Southern Queensland

Southern Queensland

The University of Southern Queensland is emerging as one of Australia's leading educational organisations for developing environmental sustainability initiatives.

University of South Queensland

Our Approach

The organisation's ambitious goal to be carbon neutral by 2020 is founded on their vision - to create an 'integrated campus ecological design layer.'

Our sustainability team has worked closely with the university to help them bring their vision to life.

WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff investigated the feasibility of using individual technologies prior to delivering a Technologies Route Map which incorporated conceptual advice, design analysis, master planning and a number of infrastructure feasibility studies.


As a result of our teams' proposed strategies and advice, the university was able to determine the most technically-viable and cost-effective methodology to reach their zero carbon target. Some of the recommended initiatives that are currently being undertaken include further analysis into cogeneration or trigeneration, the use of rainwater collection, and the installation of a very large solar PV.
