We Welcome Our New Sustainability Lead
30 Jan 2023
We’re excited to introduce our new Sustainability Lead Dani Pacella!
Based in our Melbourne studio, Dani forms an integral part of Cumulus’ growing focus on sustainability and the reduction of our studio’s environmental impact.
In her newly created role and as part of our Leadership and Operations teams, Dani will collaborate closely with project leads to achieve the best sustainable outcomes for our projects. She will also oversee the progress of Cumulus’ Environmental Management Systems (EMS).
As a registered architect and experienced project lead herself, Dani has led numerous medium to large-scale projects, many of which centre on sustainable design and mass timber construction.
Her notable projects include Monash University’s Gillies Hall, the first commercial-scale Passivhaus-certified building in Australia, and La Trobe Apartments, which received a 5-Star Green Star Design & As Built rating.
Outside of our studio, Danielle is a tutor of High Performance Design at the University of Melbourne’s School of Design and a volunteer with the Australian Passivhaus Association.
Welcome to the team Danielle!
