Fairview Green

Setting new benchmarks for shopping centre and supermarket designs in Australia, Fairview Green focuses on creating the perfect ‘shopping experience’ for its customers. Utilising international trends and research, the centre has been uniquely designed by adopting features that encourage shoppers to relax and enjoy the many treats Fairview Green has to offer. Plasma TVs displaying light entertainment and break-out areas for shoppers make the shopping experience a little bit more special, while the mood-lighting throughout, touch-screen shopping facilities and customer-friendly checkouts shaped in a half circle allow for efficient service to be provided.

 

Hames Sharley achieved improved environmental performance by incorporating a high level of sustainable principles within Fairview Green, including:

- South facing skylights within the malls, public areas and within the supermarket reduce the requirement on artificial lighting during the day;

- Sensor artificial lighting used in tandem with day lighting;

- Louvers within the skylights and windows to maximise natural ventilation and also air cross flow within the supermarket. This approach reduces the requirement of mechanical ventilation systems being working all day, particularly when outside conditions are appropriate to bring fresh air from outside into the building untreated;

- The materials within the centre have been used to reduce off-gassing of plastics, vinyls and volatile organic compounds (VOC’s). These materials have been replaced with natural materials such as timber and stone.

- The large roof space allows for many litres of water to be collected and stored within two 14,000 L storage tanks under the basement car park. This water is then used to irrigate the landscaping around the centre and also used to supply water to the public and staff toilets within the centre; and
