Matthew Graham has been a long-standing member of the Australian Building Sustainability Association (ABSA) with accreditation number 60724 for over ten years, however, with the recent merger between ABSA and the NSW based Building Designers Association of Australia, it is time to take a break.
Graham Energy has maintained dual-accreditation with ABSA and Design Matters National (DMN), formerly the Building Designers Association of Victoria (BDAV) for more than five years with the primary goal of being able to offer training, mentoring and contribute to the ABSA Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) to make difference. It is our philosophy that education and prevention, is far better than quality assurance as a potential cure. Opportunities for us to offer continuing professional development to our now former fellow peers had disappeared, so we are now focusing our resources on providing CPD events for our current Assessor Accrediting Organisation, Design Matters National.
We wish ABSA, the BDAA and all of the members the very best for the future.
