his 14,000sqm building is unique in its
design, incorporating a combination of
local and federal government users with
private sector service delivery providers.
With over 6000sqm of commercial/office
space, it is designed to allow integrated movement
between service providers centred on a large
‘internal street’ over two floors, and incorporates
more than 200 car bays in an undercroft/
basement. Sustainability provisions were built
into the building fabric both passively and actively
creating a living building.
Some of these include a 100KW photovoltaic
array to provide power back to the grid as a carbon
offset, natural ventilation with automated opening
windows for natural cross-flow breezes, major
rainwater harvesting which is fed back into the
waterwise landscaping, and intelligent LED lighting
systems that are environmentally controlled, based
on natural light conditions.
Due to site constraints, the building’s
orientation was not ideal, but substantial
sun-shading is incorporated along with the
use of high performance low ‘e’ double glazing.
Materials selected for the project are focused on
maintenance minimisation, low toxicity and, where
possible, recycled materials. These initiatives were
able to be achieved in conjunction with a rigorous
value-management process involving client,
stakeholder and consultant representation.
