WELL Rating Target


Northumberland, upon completion, will be one of Australia's most sustainable buildings.
  • Northumberland exemplifies one of IIG’s key models of real estate investment – it will be one of Australia’s most sustainable office buildings on completion. Northumberland is targeting a 6 Star Green Star ‘Design and As Built’ rating, the highest level available for the design and construction of new buildings.
  • Northumberland will be Melbourne’s first fringe commercial property that is targeting the highest WELL rating – Platinum. The WELL program is the world’s leading global standard for human health and wellbeing in the built environment and demonstrates our commitment to embodying the health and sustainable performance of both the building and its occupants. Northumberland will join an exclusive group of properties with this rating – in Australia, only 5 properties have attained the Platinum WELL rating being targeted by Northumberland.
  • Northumberland features exceptional design by internationally renowned firm John Wardle Architects. Its form, tones and textures integrate with the established Collingwood streetscape, while providing a compelling new landmark. The entrance laneway incorporates bricks recycled from the demolition of the existing structures, and the development makes extensive use of environmentally sustainable construction materials.
