We understand sustainability principles, and we use this expertise to turn design intent into actual performance
When we talk about successful sustainability design, at Intrax, we consider decarbonisation, climate-resilient design, building life cycle energy and water efficiency, the occupants' health and wellbeing of the occupants and the social value created to the surrounding community.
We take an integrated and pioneering approach to deliver more thoughtful and intentional spaces that are efficient with resources, affordable to build and operate and enhance the social outcomes and occupant's wellbeing.
