La Trobe receives first-ever 6-star Green Star rating for a sports building

Congratulations to La Trobe University for achieving Australia’s first ever 6-star Green Star Design and As-Built rating on a sports building!

Built by ADCO earlier this year, La Trobe’s new Sports Stadium is certified net positive and has been designed and built with cutting-edge features allowing the building to generate more energy than it consumes throughout the year. Located at their Bundoora campus, the development supports La Trobe’s wider goal for net-zero by 2029.

The building features a 539kW photovoltaic panel array integrated into the roof design which feeds renewable energy into the wider campus. The facility was designed to significantly reduce the building’s carbon footprint, with sustainable products and materials used throughout including furniture, flooring and ceiling panels.

Other sustainable contributing features include native landscaping, the white roof, water sensitive urban design, and an integrated waste management plan.

ADCO was proud to be Builder of Choice for La Trobe’s ground-breaking development. Our portfolio includes many 5- and 6-star Green Star certified buildings across sectors.
