2003 BANKSIA LEADERSHIP IN SUSTAINABLE BUILDINGS AWARD

 2003 BANKSIA LEADERSHIP IN SUSTAINABLE BUILDINGS AWARD

60L Green Building, Spowers Victoria, Green Building Partnership, Lincolne Scott, VIC

A ground breaking project, 60 Leicester Street, Carlton (’60L’) represents new standards of Environmentally Sustainable Design. Designed in accordance with ecological sustainability principles within a commercial context, conversion of the building involved refurbishment of an existing 3 storey brick, timber and concrete office building and integrating the construction of a new 4 storey concrete structure. Produced to a commercial budget, 60L challenges the preconception that ‘green’ buildings cost more. 60L was significantly let at commencement of construction and provides massive savings in energy and water consumption.
