This project was a finalist in the 2016 Banksia Awards in the Sustainable Cities category. It was also the first project in Victoria to receive an ‘Excellent’ rating from the Infrastructure Sustainability Council of Australia and a ‘6 Star Green Star’ design rating from the Green Building Council of Australia.
The new automotive terminal includes a Terminal Control & Customer Service Centre Building (Office building) plus various facility buildings including Gate House, Work Shop Warehouse, Stevedores and Truckers facilities.
The vision for the terminal was to create a leading edge triple bottom line automotive terminal that would be able to meet the logistics requirements of the future.
This objective was consistent with WWL’s Castor Green Terminal Concept and long term corporate commitment to extending its Zero Carbon Emissions ambition to port and land activities.
The vision underpins the multi-dimensional design philosophy and investment model extant in the Development Proposal for the Melbourne International RoRo Terminal.
The goal is to create a SMART terminal and processing center that works to minimize the environmental impact of port based operations by improving efficiency and investing in innovative technology at local, regional, national and international levels.
