2016, June: What is being designed?

With the Certificate data stored in the Hstar portal, CSIRO is able to extract building data to understand what is being designed.  As time goes by a more complete data set will be available, however, we have a few interesting facts from the initial data collected over the past 12 months from over 24,000 ratings done using AccuRate. Bear in mind that this is from a limited data set and so may not be representative of the full Australian building market.
