“Intrapac have successfully achieved EnviroDevelopment certifications for 3 projects nationally this year, with a 4th project being submitted early in the new year. I have worked closely with both Ricki and EnviroDevelopment team over the past 12 months for each of these projects.
My biggest tip to ensure a smooth and trouble free process would be to firstly listen and then obey Ricki’s advice. The EnviroDevelopment team is there to help you, so try and leverage off that assistance for an smooth certification process.
It has been a pleasure working with Ricki, as her passion for EnviroDevelopment, and attention to detail will always deliver the best result for the project.”

“In the days before EnviroDevelopment, very little consideration was given to sustainability initiatives in the development of residential subdivisions and communities. EnviroDevelopment has changed this significantly through increasing awareness of sustainability across the development sector, and through the promotion of positive case study examples. This has helped to mainstream many initiatives and motivate people to create a point of difference in their project by trying something new and different in support of an EnviroDevelopment application.
It is interesting to observe that many of the projects now receiving UDIA awards are EnviroDevelopment certified projects. So, what I’ve seen is a real progression over time of projects improving their sustainability outcomes, first in relation to the common and public spaces, and in more recent times extending to an influence over the design and performance of homes and other buildings in a development. I look forward to seeing even more progress towards truly sustainable outcomes over the next 10 years.”
