The Living Building

Such remarkable impact requires an equally remarkable hub. Based in a $32m 'Living Building', GCI generates more energy than it consumes and is a flagship for sustainability. The building is naturally ventilated, captures its own power through solar panels and stores up to 60,000L of rainwater. The 6 Star Green Star rated structure was made possible by a generous $15m donation from UQ alumnus and philanthropist Graeme Wood.
