Abstract

This research has been conducted to compare the significant material reductions available through various slab systems to improve the sustainability attributes of a given building from a structural perspective. Specifically the study investigates the structural efficiency of a building that has been repetitively designed varying each of the slab systems and concrete construction types. These structures are designed in accordance with all relevant Australian standards. Each design is then graded in relation to the sustainable performance of the structure; more specifically its overall environmental performance. The outcomes of this study indicate that significant economic and environmental benefits are achievable through the selection of the most appropriate structural system type.
