Star Convention Centre

Melbourne’s new Convention Centre to the greenest in Australia

Star Convention Centre


January 24th, 2008

Premier John Brumby has recently announced the Green Building Council of Australia’s decision to award a 6-Star Green Star rating for the new Convention Centre.

Environmental features include sustainable solutions for both water and light. Solar panels will deliver all public amenity hot water requirements and a black-water recycling plant will recycle water to supply toilets, cooling towers and irrigate landscapes. Energy-saving controls will be installed on lighting, and some fixtures will adjust depending on the amount of daylight detected in the room.

The design was put through a rigorous process to achieve the rating, and has set a new global standard for convention centres, the Premier calling it “a landmark building in Melbourne’s developing landscape”.
