Gorgeous Goods Shed North

27 Nov 2009

Gorgeous Goods Shed North Image

Docklands master developer VicUrban has moved into the sumptuously-refurbished Goods Shed North building which runs between Collins and Bourke streets in Docklands.

Some 600 staff from VicUrban, the Building Commission and the Plumbing Industry Commission will inhabit the $63 million renovation.

The building is Victoria’s first heritage building to achieve a 5 Star Green Star Rating for its environmental values.

Among its environmental credentials are:

  • Active chilled beam heating and cooling;
  • Gas-fired tri-generation power generating power on-site;
  • Underfloor ventilation system;
  • Rainwater harvesting;
  • Grey water system for toilet flushing;
  • Constructed from mostly recyclable materials;
  • Dedicated bicycle storage; and
  • No car parking (encourages sustainable travel to work).
