Caddens Corner - The new sustainable 5 Green Star retail precinct
Construction is complete on Caddens Corner, a new 5 Green Star rated neighbourhood shopping destination for Penrith City. The four-hectare site owned by Western Sydney University is part of the Western Growth strategy, reshaping the University’s campus network, and allowing the University to maximise its investment in the core university activities of teaching, engagement and research. This project also encompasses the University’s commitment to the communities of Western Sydney, particularly in the face of significant population growth and will include around 9,000 sqm retail space.

Panel discussion: Building a sustainable future
The construction industry, by its very nature, is one of the largest consumers of materials and produces more waste than any other sector. The need and importance of sustainability in construction have become a hot topic due to growing concerns over climate change and the finite nature of resources. But what exactly is sustainable construction and how do you embed it into every phase of your project?
- What’s driving the shift towards more sustainable construction methods and materials?
- Which new technologies and materials are enabling sustainable construction?
- How do you ensure sustainability in your supply chain and during the construction process?
- How are building standards and ratings driving the adoption of sustainable construction?
- Case Study: Caddens Corner
- Looking at the development of a 5-Star mixed use project in Western Sydney and the lessons learnt and the outcomes achieved
- Examining the client brief, how the architects interpreted that brief and how the construction process was implemented in order to deliver the sustainable objectives
