PRACTICAL COMPLETION | Morris Moor Building 4

Happy New Year! Just prior to the break Kapitol reached practical completion on Morris Moor Building 4 for Up Property.

The adaptive re-use of the former Phillip Morris factory in Moorabbin is one of our most sustainable projects to-date with 19 million kilograms of embodied carbon saved by retaining the existing structure, supported by a 460-solar-panel system which will generate up to 245kWp.

Kapitol’s Project Manager Jamie Kerr, who led the delivery of Building 4, said the demand for efficient community-focused developments was growing. “Customers are becoming increasingly aware of the environmental impacts of development and are specifically looking for sustainable options,” he said.

Up Property General Manager Marcus Jankie said the adaptation of what was once Moorabbin’s major employer has had a widespread impact. “It would take more than 7500ha or 4000 MCG ovals, of eucalyptus forest to absorb that amount of carbon over the course of a year,” he said.

We’re proud and grateful to have had the opportunity to work on this significant development—a big thank you to the consultants, subcontractors and our own team for their hard work to hand over building 4 prior to the festive break.
