Melbourne-based ICD Property hopes to build Adelaide’s greenest office building after targeting a Six-star Green Star rating from the Green Building Council for the commercial portion of its $400 million redevelopment of the city’s Central Market Arcade.
The 15,000 square-metre all-electric office tower within ICD’s Market Square precinct will feature rooftop solar, rainwater capture for irrigation and use only locally sourced recovered and recycled materials in its construction wherever possible. A minimum of 90 per cent of waste generated from the building will be diverted from landfill.
“We want to deliver buildings that stand the test of time, we want to push the limits with green initiatives while still making our projects [financially] feasible. We believe we’ve struck a good balance with this project.”
