SITE TOUR: RMIT Green Campus

RMIT Green Campus Tour
26 September / MELBOURNE

Take a tour of the sustainability initiatives on the RMIT City campus. Highlights include:

The New Academic Street (NAS) project that has transformed the heart of the City campus into a vibrant, green, urban precinct that has significantly improved student life. The carefully planned program has both renovated existing and creating new spaces including 13,000 square metres of new Library, Media Precinct, open-air terraces, balconies and mixed retail. Developed using the Green Star interiors rating tool the project has a number of sustainability initiatives, include the use of low-impact materials, mixed mode ventilation and laneways which bring natural light and fresh air into the buildings.

Ngarara Place, is a unique indigenous courtyard that combines nature, colour, culture and history to illustrate the Kulin Nation’s seven seasons and was opened to mark the launch of University’s Reconciliation Action Plan.

The Bike Hub project was a response to feedback that the availability of high quality end-of-trip facilities would encourage more people to ride to the University. Opened in April 2016, the project transformed a dark street level car park into a vibrant space dedicated to parking 400 bikes, were staff and students can park securely, conduct repairs and refresh in the changing facilities.
