The Sustainability Centre, designed for St Leonard's College, is an exemplary building that showcases a diverse range of passive systems, renewable energy technologies and flexible teaching spaces. The building reflects a ‘whole of school’ approach to sustainability, which in itself is a teaching aid and an integrated component of the college’s environmental sustainability curriculum.

Features include:

  • A solar wall (for winter heating and summer ventilation stack)
  • Rainwater-fed water walls for passive evaporative cooling
  • Solar thermal panels with a gas-boosted underfloor heating system
  • A demonstration photovoltaic and micro-wind turbine for on-site electricity generation
  • UN Association of Australia World Environment Day Awards (2008), Szencorp Green Building Award
  • School Building Association (Council for Education Facility Planners International) Awards (2007), new construction of individual facility
