Built Environment’s research clusters reflect existing and emergent research strengths within the school and across disciplines.
Built Environment’s research clusters reflect existing and emergent research strengths within the school and across disciplines. Our research priority theme of the design, delivery and management of 21st-century cities is reflected in our clusters and groups.
Cluster research projects involve publication ventures, symposia, conferences and exhibitions. Cluster activities, supported by the school, contribute to research programs within the school and beyond. Built Environment research groups bring together research partners and levels of government to address current world issues from future city planning to the impact of the built environment on people living with disabilities.
Exploring multi-disciplinary perspectives on the history and development of urban and suburban environments.
Enhancing the everyday quality of people and place relationships in cities. Place is defined as broad as a region and as small as a room.
Investigating how ICT and geospatial technologies can make cities more inclusive, sustainable and resilient.
Our work advances the understanding of cities focusing on people, places, policies and technologies. We research the major urban challenges of city equity, housing, productivity, sustainability, resilience, governance and renewal
The High Performance Architecture research cluster aims to deliver research innovation in design, planning and management of high performance buildings and cities.

The City Analytics Lab (CAL) is a dedicated space designed to support collaborative city planning and user centred design.
The EBEP is concerned with how the built environment, from home to town centre design level, impacts human function, quality of life and healthcare costs for older people, young people with disability and carers.
HMInfo was established in 2002 and its mission is to collate, review, develop and disseminate evidence-based home modification knowledge in order to enhance the independence and wellbeing of older people and younger people with disability, provide safe working environments for their carers and careworkers.
