Mandurah, Western Australia
The proposed Mandurah development is one of several projects based on affordable “Co-living and NDIS Community Hub” under a “Build to Rent” model aimed at creating a “Social Impact”.
The project is located at the Mandurah Station. It consists of 22 co-living apartments with 79 rooms, 4 NDIS apartments, a social-enterprise coffee shop and a medical centre with NDIS Therapy.
A modular datacentre powered by renewable energy is underpinning the project’s financial viability. The building has been passive solar designed, based on a modular grid system.
The construction maximises the use of low carbon renewable building materials by using “tall timber construction”, which maintains a clean environment. The project has also incorporated a solar array over the roofs of the building and parking area, where excess electricity is sold to the primary grid.
