Civic Precinct Doncaster
The $37.8M Doncaster Civic Precinct community hub is part of the pilot program for the green star public building tool. The design includes features such as a minimum 5 Star Green Star rating (using the municipal pilot rating tool) and a 5 Star NABERS rating.
The energy plant for this facility includes a centralised trigeneration plant to serve both the existing Council offices and the proposed new building. Industry, state and federal government funding were applied to achieve sustainable and innovative solutions.
Haskell Architects were recently awarded the Stormwater Victoria Award for Master Planning and Design for water sensitive urban design for the Doncaster Civic Precinct project.
