CENTRELINK NATIONAL HQ
The national headquarters building for Centrelink, ‘Greenway’, establishes a new benchmark in workplace design, driven by environmental and social sustainability initiatives. The building, with a GFA of 50,000sqm over six levels is a “landscraper” rather than a “skyscraper”. The building targeted and achieved a 4.5 star AGBR. The design of the building envelope was critical to achieving this performance, in addition to addressing related sustainability issues of longevity, minimal maintenance and resource efficiency. ’Greenway’ has delivered a number of key ESD objectives: Low environmental impact at both global and local scale, high occupant amenity and substantially reduced wastage usually associated with high churn. The building captures the synergistic benefits of environmental, social and economic sustainability, the new paradigm in workplace design.
