Epworth Eastern Redevelopment

The Epworth Eastern Redevelopment, co-located with Box Hill Public Hospital in Melbourne, Australia, will deliver five new operating theatres, three new endoscopy suites, 63 beds, and six levels of specialist consulting suites. The project’s sustainability strategy uses the Green Star tool as a reference guide, focusing on environmental initiatives associated with the management, indoor environment quality, water, and materials categories. Using the Green Star Design tool to benchmark the project’s ESD performance, the development currently targets a four-star self-assessment.

• Renewable energy through the installation of solar panels
• Rainwater harvesting for toilet flushing and irrigation
• Motion sensor lighting
• Low volatile organic compounds products
• Energy-efficient plant and equipment
• Automatic monitoring of electricity, water. and energy
• Energy-efficient façade design
