5 Star Green Star Office As Built v3 Rating
This campus-style mixed use office and field operations centre creates a prototype for Ergon Energy’s future Hub sites around Queensland and sets a new benchmark for similarly integrated depot developments nationally.
The Mackay Hub represents the consolidation of Ergon Energy’s city administrative functions with their field operations at the Ness Street Depot to create a new mixed use campus style development.
Lendlease Design in collaboration with Architectus designed a single integrated facility that embodies an open, productive and socially inclusive workplace. At the heart of the facility is the Eco-Link, a double-height circulation and gathering space that is conceived as a vibrant social centre.
A commitment to sustainability is expressed in the building’s passive and active systems including through the use of solar screens, mixed-mode ventilation, thermal chimneys and many other features.
