Broad Construction completed the North Lakes Civic Facility building which included a basement carpark, library, community centre, and commercial office space, and is one of Australia’s first Five Star Green Star rated public buildings.
The facility boasts 550 solar panels on the roof generating up to 145 kilowatts, extensive rainwater harvesting and technology to regulate air conditioning, natural ventilation and light. The striking façade consists of a combination of coloured concrete feature precast panels, metal cladding and double-glazed windows.
Although the project was delivered under a traditional lump sum contract, Broad Construction conducted value engineering during the construction phase and were able to provide innovative design changes which have improved the facility’s efficiency, usability, and value for money.
