New PhD opportunity at Massey University

Assessing Sustainable Construction Using Mātauranga Māori Led Approaches

Massey University is looking for a PhD student who is passionate about realizing more environmentally sustainable building construction in Aotearoa, drawing on the wisdom that comes from mātauranga Māori. You will be developing models to measure and communicate the carbon footprint of alternative future buildings that are designed using Construction 4.0 ideas – employing the latest complex system data management science to realise construction optimisation. The research will build on existing work undertaken at Massey University and the Building Research Association of New Zealand (BRANZ) to measure the carbon footprint of construction materials and processes. We will be taking it to the next level by integrating it into Construction 4.0 data-based digitally integrated design concepts optimised for environmental impact, manufacturability, constructability and reuse – and incorporating mātauranga Māori interfaces.
