Find out more about some of the proposed Environmentally Sustainable Design (ESD) strategies we have planned for Brunswick Street Oval.

Energy efficiency

  • All electric facilities, without the need for gas, powered by 100% renewable energy.
  • Solar installed on roofs, in addition to the solar panels already installed on the grandstand.
  • Energy efficient appliances including air conditioning and lighting.
  • High performance insulation.
  • Using of shading and sky lights to allow in an appropriate amount of heat and light.

Water efficiency

  • Rainwater harvested from the roof for reuse in toilets and irrigation.
  • Smart controls and monitoring to minimise water consumption.
  • Water sensitive landscaping.

Responsible materials

  • Use of sustainable and responsibly sourced materials.
  • Lower emissions in design of construction.

Other strategies

  • Building and landscape elements to reduce the impact of the heat island effect, including light-coloured materials and appropriate planting.
  • Bicycle parking to support sustainable transport options.
