Site Tour: The Camperdown Project: Common Ground
Based on the ‘Common Ground’ accommodation model first successfully implemented in New York, the 5 Star Green Star – Multi Unit Residential Design v1 certified Camperdown Project – Common Ground provides permanent homes and onsite support services to a social mix of people, including low income workers as well as people exiting long-term chronic homelessness in the inner-city of Sydney.
Built by Grocon, and managed by Mission Australia Housing, the Camperdown Project was initiated as part of a coordinated government response to homelessness and commitment to reducing the number of rough sleepers by 25% by 2013.
This six-storey residential development designed by HASSELL and engineered by Norman Disney & Young includes 104 self-contained units and incorporates Green Star sustainability features including energy-efficient lights and sustainable materials and finishes.
