The project deals with the optimisation of the climatic and microclimatic conditions in four future precincts in the South Creek of Sydney. The future precincts are: Combined Bringelly Town Centre and Rossemore, St Mary’s, Elisabeth Drive and Marylands. This study has challenged conventional thinking around mitigating urban heat, including the way we look at the Climatic Conditions in the Southern Creek area, energy impacts, impact on Electricity Demand, and heat Related Mortality.
Multiple measurement techniques and advanced simulation techniques have been used to satisfy the above described objectives. Several mitigation techniques including the use of additional greenery, evaporation, reflective materials and combination of the above are simulated to assess their mitigation potential.
