Medibank Building Melbourne


As the new Medibank headquarters rises from the ground in Melbourne, It is the plants that will give it a dynamic green facade are being trialed on an adjacent rooftop. The southern façade of the Property development at 720 Bourke Street in Docklands will feature two 20 metre high planted green walls rising from the Bourke St entrance. Higher up, the building will have a growing façade system consisting of 520 planter boxes as part of the façade curtain wall. It is an ambitious greening project in a difficult environment. While green walls in an urban environment flourish in Asia and the tropics, the challenges of such projects are much greater in the temperate climate of Melbourne. "When it is finished in 2014, Medibank will move into a 6 Star Green Star building that embodies Medibank's aspirations and values. It reflects Medibank's transformation from a traditional health insurance business to a new focus on better managing health and well-being as a preventative measure." The first eleven levels of 720 Bourke Street are now structurally complete with services and façade panels beginning to be installed. The building will eventually have 23 levels. Ingen3D has provide the steel detail drawings and models for this project.
