AboutThe Client



The centre has been designed and constructed to aspire to high-level contemporary sustainability principles as well as maximise the building’s life and life cycle costs. For example, design and construction considerations include careful consideration of the materials selected, the installation of LED lighting throughout, the orientation of the building, sun shading, the installation of a purpose built end of trip facilities, and the use of recycled materials.
