The effect of carbon tax on the construction industry
Our study aims toinvestigate the effect of carbon tax on theconstruction industry.
In the past there have beenmany studies conducted onclimate change, however,many have not beenfocused as the effectcarbon tax on theconstruction industry.
We are researching thistopic to fill this researchgap.

Using
‘Effectiveness of 
the carbon taxpolicy has yet to
be justified’ as an
excuse
Implications to Australia:
 1.Construction activities could increase due to the advancement of green technology and changes of construction materials andmethods.2.Delegating emissions law more carefully to avoid mission drift3.Loop holes of the carbon tax legislation should be filled up.4.Carbon tax may cripple the investment in property construction5.Further education is required to achieve the perceived outcomes

 The effect of climate change on the trend of construction research
 
Through a critical review of 290 papers published in the ERA ranked journals in Category 1202 Building,we seek to investigate the effect of climate change on the trend of construction research.
 –
Relevant research papers from 35 international journals were reviewed.
 –
This may be the first-ever comprehensive literature review study on this topic in Australia.
Summarizing the previous research outputs and linking them with the area of furtherresearch, the conceptual framework of the effect of climate change on the trend ofconstruction research is prepared and shown in the above figure.

The figure depicts that anassortment of researches in [1]the use of building materials {2}energy/emission consumptionreduction for further buildings [3]seeking alternative designmethods [4] establishment ofperformancemeasurement/monitoring systems[5] policy related issues had beenundertaken by the constructionresearchers. Yet, further researchstudies should be done in order tocomprehend the study. Therelated suggestions can be foundin our final report.

While alternative materials are suggested, there is nosuggestion as to how they can be implementedRe-use receives minimal attention inAustralia. It takes time to attract publicattention
Policy doesn’t reach consensus with public
opinionEvaluation of effectiveness of policy is requiredDeveloping proactive measures is yet to be proven to be feasibleand requires huge policy change and haven't suggested how theycan implement in realityNew energy efficient designs for old buildings receivesminimal attention in Australia and creates instabilityResearch should address building resilience in terms ofstructures, function and location as well as security ofenergy and communication supplySolving issues surrounding carbon emissionsthrough the implementation of policies that actuallyreduce emissions and not just create income for thegovernmentSustainability is much larger thanreducing emissions
