Peninsula campus is the third largest of Monash’s urban campuses and comprises the university’s major presence in the Frankston and Mornington Peninsula region.
The project delivers a new student accommodation building comprising 150 student beds in the form of studio apartments, two apartments for residential support, and common spaces to support the whole campus residential community (250 people approx.) It will meet the aspirations of Monash Residential Services and deliver the high level pastoral care model that has defined on campus accommodation at Monash University.
Set to be Australia’s largest cross laminated timber (CLT) building which achieves Passive House Certification, the CLT panels will halve the amount of embodied carbon compared with typical concrete construction; to help Monash University achieve its “net zero” carbon target by 2030. The Passive House design including rooftop solar is expected to dramatically cut grid electricity use.
