STRATA MANAGEMENT: Tonja Gibson, founding director of Strata Answers and board member of Green Strata, is on a mission to bring modern, green solutions to strata buildings – and not just in “woke” and affluent inner city communities but for the small, forgotten blocks in outer ring suburbs.
“There are a lot of old walk-up buildings in the suburbs that are relatively affordable. They often sit on large plots of land and have parking underneath and roof spaces that aren’t being used to their full potential.”
At the same time, these buildings need “things to be done”, like fire compliance and new windows.
With a bit of forward planning, strategy and some leadership from their strata committees, these buildings could use the “things to be done” as an opportunity to improve their environmental performance.
