Glenroy Community Hub wins at LGPro Awards
Congratulations to Merri-bek City Council on their recent success at the LGPro Awards.
The LGPro (Local Government Professionals) Awards for Excellence promote and celebrate the outstanding work being undertaken and delivered by individuals and teams working in Local Government in Victoria.
The Glenroy Community Hub received the award for Community Assets and Infrastructure Initiative (Projects over $5 million), acknowledging the Hub as a contemporary community facility designed to be a welcoming, nature-inspired environment for the community to learn, grow and celebrate.
The renaming of Merri-bek was also a finalist in the First Nations Community Partnership Initiative category. Merri-bek is the new name of the former Moreland City Council, with the council having partnered with Wurundjeri Elders to design and deliver a successful name change process in 2022.
Well done, Merri-bek City Council. Partnering with you to deliver Australia’s first Passivhaus certified community building, the Glenroy Community Hub, was an absolute pleasure.
A global benchmark for best practices in sustainable building design, the state-of-the-art community facility meets the highest environmental design standards and demonstrates the council’s commitment to leadership in acting on climate change.
With a net positive energy rating, the Glenroy Community Hub exceeds the organisation’s commitment to delivering net zero buildings.
