This unusual project provides a community health centre for the local residents and car park provisions for the Glen Waverley central business district. The ground floor community healthcare centre has been designed with flexibility and comfort in mind. It has an emphasis on individual control with openable windows, simple but effective servicing and user controlled, ‘manual on, auto-off’ servicing.  

The new facility boasts a significant number of environmental initiatives including the extensive use of recycled timber, sustainable sourced timber (FSC approved timber) and photovoltaic power which is expected to provide about 19% of the total energy consumed and will reduce the carbon emissions by 15,500 kg annually.

Rainwater is harvested, stored on site and filtered through a central bioswale for use by the planters and the centre amenities. Enough water is stored on site to supply the drought tolerant planting for a three month dry period resulting in a garden-facade suitable for the Australian climate.

Via a simple utilisation of the site, the traditionally deep car-park format was fractured to allow an open wedge to penetrate deep into the plan. This enabled a number of initiatives including natural ventilation and maximising access to natural light to all levels above basement.

LED lighting throughout the car park was selected not just for efficiency, but also long life to reduce globe replacements, a key maintenance cost driver for council.
