Detailed artist impressions of the Andrews Labor Government’s Bendigo GovHub have been unveiled – revealing a design with sustainability, connectivity and wellbeing at the forefront.
Member for Bendigo East Jacinta Allan and Member for Bendigo West Maree Edwards today released the designs for the Bendigo community at the site of the $90 million project in Lyttleton Terrace.
The artist impressions reflect Bendigo’s unique heritage and culture though the use of bluestone material, building on initial concept designs which were taken to the community for feedback during consultation sessions earlier in the year.
The GovHub will feature ground floor community spaces and a welcoming customer service area, a concierge, a café, opportunities for heritage or local art exhibitions and spaces with lookouts offering views of landscaped gardens.
Designed by Lyons Architects, the designs emphasise sustainability, with efficient indoor air quality systems, solar panels, water and energy monitoring systems and a large timber frame which provides both construction and health benefits.
Incorporating world-class flexible workspaces and impressive end-of-trip facilities, the GovHub will accommodate up to 1000 local and state government workers over a four-floor building.
The completion of the artist impressions brings the project a step closer to moving to the construction phase in mid-2020.
