Puckapunyal Military Area Memorial Chapel – IDEA 2020

Puckapunyal Military Area Memorial Chapel

The project achieves a 20 percent improvement on energy targets for non-office buildings, equivalent to a 4.5 star ABGR rating. Water use is monitored by a building management system, which is linked to a regional utility management system. 70 percent of construction and demolition waste was diverted from landfill. Materials are appropriate to a public building, selected for their durability: zinc, stone and FSC certified timber. Mixed mode ventilation with operable windows and ceilings and high-performance glazing assists thermal comfort.
