Jardon Group Commit to Adaptive Re-Use and Upgrade Sector


Jardon Group is committed to playing their part in the construction and redevelopment required across Melbourne’s large scale commercial buildings to achieve the Victorian & Australian Government’s net zero target.

In recent years, the construction industry prioritised enhancing Building Regulations and adopting stricter carbon targets for new construction. Yet, existing buildings were often overlooked.

While existing buildings have always been reused for both pragmatic and symbolic reasons, with the push toward net zero, planning policy changes and growing social environmental awareness, focus is now shifting to existing buildings.

Initiatives such as the City of Melbourne’s ‘Retrofit Melbourne Plan’ emphasise the significance of adaptive reuse, concentrating on refurbishing & retrofitting existing buildings to aid Victoria in achieving its reduced carbon targets.

With completed projects such as the refurbishment of 124 Exhibition St, Melbourne and 9 Yarra Street, South Yarra, Jardon Group is actively engaged in the adaptive re-use and upgrade sector and delivering a cleaner future for Victoria.

“Adaptive re-use and upgrades are at the forefront of planning across the most sophisticated and progressive cities around the world.  Melbourne is no exception to this and we believe these new initiatives and targets will unlock a large number of assets across our city that will have a truly tangible contribution to the environment and our future generations”.

Brian Donovan, Jardon Group Founding Director

124 Exhibition St went beyond a simple finishes upgrade and included energy improvements with building facade and insulation upgrades.

Natural gas was removed from existing systems and replaced with highly efficient all electric HVAC plant and domestic hot water plant equipment, reducing fossil fuel Co2 emissions in the environment.

The 9 Yarra St project included building an additional steel framed extension incorporating Hebel flooring on top of the existing building concrete structure.

Using these alternative materials reduced the need for cement in the project’s material supply chain, again reducing the effect of Co2 released into the environment.

Jardon Group delivered both design and construction for both re-use and retrofit projects.

With the City of Melbourne’s Retrofit Melbourne Plan, Jardon Group were able to realise these carbon reduction upgrade projects while also managing their delivery and change overs within an operating building minimising impacts to the tenants and improving the existing building stock for the next generation.
