WGV by LandCorp

An innovative residential infill development helping to reshape the future of Australian housing.

WGV by LandCorp is a multi-typology, medium density residential in-fill development in White Gum Valley that is setting a new benchmark for urban development in WA.

JBA is the project’s Landscape Architect responsible for the design, documentation and construction superintendence of the landscaping from concept to completion.

Our Environmental Engineering and Sustainability team is working closely with LandCorp to implement a range of sustainability initiatives that focus on resource efficiency. This includes achieving international endorsement for WGV as the first One Planet Community in Western Australia.

JBA is helping project stakeholders to communicate the benefits of this project which will improve the West Australian development industry more broadly. This includes the Waterwise Development Exemplar (WDE) initiative that has successfully achieved Water Corporation Waterwise Development accreditation and is setting mains water efficiency targets that are well beyond those considered best practice in the development industry.

In his capacity as a Curtin University Research Fellow, JBA Director Josh Byrne is the Chief Investigator (with Professor Peter Newman) in a four-year Cooperative Research Centre for Low Carbon Living research project that will monitor and assess the design performance, impact of technology choice and occupant behaviour on energy use and carbon emissions across the development.
