Ground breaking ESD technology 15 architecture and sustainability awards Set an Australian benchmark of excellence for environmentally sustainable design (ESD) in civic buildings.

This eye-catching community focal point epitomises Probuild’s ability to work at the cutting edge of Environmentally Sustainable Design.

These include a bio-filtration atrium with thermal labyrinth for passive filtering and tempering of air, extensive natural light, solar-tracking timber louvres, automated fabric shading, mixed mode ventilation, extensive photovoltaic arrays, geothermal cooling bores, rainwater collection, and recycled and sustainable material selection.
