Collaborating with Revival Projects

Sustainability is a key focus for the Melbourne Arts Precinct Transformation project and we’re looking at different ways to re-use, recycle and reduce. As part of the project, we are excited to collaborate with Revival Projects, who specialise in sustainable design and construction.
Over the next six years, Revival will be working closely with the project and design teams to explore how trees removed from the precinct for construction can be reused and repurposed.
Removal of trees has begun and is being done thoughtfully and professionally, taking into consideration the welfare of local wildlife, local biodiversity, the community’s connection to the trees and leading sustainability practices.
The trees removed from the precinct have been brought to Revival’s urban tree recovery facility in Collingwood, where they have begun the process of milling and exploring the most feasible applications for re-use.
We look forward to continuing to work with Revival on this important initiative as part of the Melbourne Arts Precinct Transformation.
