Central will provide a new way of connected living for students. Within walking distance of Melbourne University, Monash College and RMIT and sitting right on the edge of the city, Central is ideally located for new students to live, learn and connect with both their city surrounds and students.

A key aspiration of the client is to provide spaces to encourage students to connect to each other, putting student care at the forefront of the project. Low maintenance and ease of serviceability are imperative. ADP have provided clever and efficient building services design, with quality services and life cycle costs as key drivers.

To provide the best service to residents, technology has been a priority, providing safe entry access through smart phones and other app and smart-building features to make every part of living there easy. The building design, including the high-quality building services, encourages a connected experience for the students with significant communal and activity spaces, all supported by the latest in building technology. The building has s strong focus on sustainable, low energy solutions with layouts and services that take advantage of natural light and ventilation.
