Alison Adendorff

Sustainability Consultant

I’m an architect by trade, with 10 years’ experience as a sustainable design consultant. I have niche specialisations in energy modelling for Green Star, daylight modelling, façade design, optimised shading design and water management strategies for complex developments, as well as Green Star for commercial projects and thermal modelling for residential projects (NatHERS and BASIX).


Working in sustainability is a small way I can make a positive difference with every building I work on. After all, the building industry has the biggest contribution to the world’s greenhouse gas emissions. Climate Change is a huge problem and I want a world that my kids can live in.

My favourite projects are those where the client or architect is willing to collaborate with us to create a higher impact sustainable design that makes the building achieve a better outcome for occupants and, evermore frequently, financial returns.

I have a Bachelor of Science (Architecture) and a Master of Architecture (Professional).

To me, free time is to escape – camping with my family, nature walks, reading and relaxing.
