Carrum Family and Children's Centre

Co-perform provided the Sustainability Management Plan and Section J services for the new Carrum Family & Children’s Centre. The Centre delivers a state-of-the-art indoor and outdoor learning environment. The Centre includes intimate indoor spaces and the outdoor environment is considered just as important for children’s learning experiences:
  • 4 playrooms totalling over 100 child care places.
  • 2 Maternal and child health consulting rooms.
ESD features of the project include: ​
  • An “excellent” rating aspiration on the Sustainable Design Scorecard.
  • Attention to the passive design elements (glazing specifications, exposure/covering/insulation of thermal mass, blinds, natural ventilation, etc) and the selection of energy efficient equipment enables a 30% to 40% energy reduction.
  • Post occupancy ESD evaluation performed by Co-Perform.
