Monash Peninsula Student Accommodation 

Frankston, Victoria

A significant project for Monash University as it moves to deliver on ambitious renewables and sustainability plans, the new student residences at Monash’s Peninsula Campus will be innovative for both the Passivhaus target and CLT construction materials.

Providing 150 student apartments, staff accommodation and a range of collaborative and independent study nooks and communal spaces, the project will utilise cross laminated timber (CLT) construction and target Passive House certification. Designed by Jackson Clements Burrows Architects (JCBA) and with services and ESD by AECOM, the building will also be gas free. The extensive rooftop solar plant is expected to cut grid electricity use dramatically.
