Monash Peninsula Student Accommodation, Melbourne
Multiplex has completed Monash University’s highly sustainable student accommodation precinct at the Peninsula Campus.
With 150 single occupancy units set over six floors the accommodation provides students with a range of modern, high quality and eco-friendly residential spaces.
Designed by architects Jackson Clements Brown, the student accommodation features communal kitchens and games rooms. It has also been topped with a solar panel system to reduce operating costs.
Using cross-laminated timber has the capacity to halve the embodied carbon in the building relative to a concrete structure and the project is set to receive Passivhaus certification. In conjunction with the root top solar panels, Passivhaus dramatically reduces operating carbon emissions.
