SUSTAINABILITY THAT MEETS THE NEEDS OF FUTURE GENERATIONS
Long term sustainability has been carefully considered across all aspects of the development to meet the needs of future generations. Ripley Town Centre has incorporated a number of sustainable initiatives and outcomes across the Stage One asset, targeting a 5 Star rating for Green Star Design and As-Built v1.1.
Future stages of development will continue to incorporate a number of sustainable initiatives.
CENTRE OF SUSTAINABLE EXCELLENCE
Sustainability is a primary objective for Ripley Town Centre, and as such the Stage One centre has incorporated a number of sustainability initiatives and outcomes and is targeting a 5 Star Green Star Design and As-Built v1.1 rating.
Waste recycling is used throughout the stage one asset and is incorporated into the masterplan.
Ripley Town Centre’s car park currently incorporates solar panels generating ~75% of the electricity for the existing shopping environment.
An energy monitoring system (EMS) monitors energy and water consumption in the stage one asset, providing the management team with vital information to ensure efficient operation.
Water sensitive urban design principles are being used to manage storm water, prevent pollution of local waterways and provide greater efficiency.
The existing retail centre incorporates energy efficient glazing, shading and insulation to provide thermal comfort for occupants to minimise energy consumption.
A centralised electricity embedded network enables electricity to be purchased in bulk and provided to existing tenants at a competitive rate.
CONTRIBUTING TO THE ENVIRONMENT AND COMMUNITY
Future stages of development will continue to incorporate a number of sustainable initiatives. By leveraging strengths cultivated in Japan and around the world, we can successfully contribute to environmental and community improvements across the Ripley Town Centre project.
PRIVATE ENERGY NETWORK
We will utilise solar and other clean energy sources generated across Ripley Town Centre with the community via co-sharing. Enabling a reduced carbon footprint and tariff savings
EFFICIENT USE OF SPACE AND AMENITY
Public space has many alternate uses during off peak times to benefit the community. We’ve incorporated co-sharing public amenity
AFFORDABLE AND EFFICIENT SHARED ECONOMY
Thinking about space efficiency for residents and businesses and promoting a low-carbon community via a private car sharing scheme
A TRUE SENSE OF PLACE
To create a cultural hub of shared spaces that inspire valuable human connection and interaction
DESIGN IN DENSITY
To develop a high-density community that allows residents and businesses to operate in a 20-minute ecosystem. One that is surrounded and interconnected with parks and natural settings
