    Norman Disney and Young (NDY) have released an informative documentary detailing the sustainability performance of the 700 Bourke Street building development in Melbourne. 

    700 Bourke Street is a 16-level $ 233.9 million commercial building designed by Woods Bagot Architecture and developed by Brookfield Multiplex and NDY.

    It includes retail facilities, two podium levels incorporating car park, plant rooms, bicycle parking and a fitout for the National Australia Bank (NAB).

    The concourse level features the majority of the retail facilities, an auditorium, NAB branch and café whilst levels four to fourteen, consist of childcare facilities and NAB office space.

    Rooftop plant rooms and a garden terrace offer a green contrast to the urban setting, while a continuous atrium between levels two and fourteen allows natural light to permeate the design

    Among the environmentally sustainable features are an energy efficient facade, high performance solar glazing, a percentage of ‘small car’ car parks and a black water treatment plant.

    Watch the video Below for Norman Disney and Young's commentary on the build.
