16 Jan Caribbean Park – A world-class office precinct
“Caribbean Park is a truly visionary destination unlike any other.”
This week Team EDGE visited Caribbean Park in Scorsby. Located next to Caribbean Gardens, this project is set to be a stand out commercial development for 2015. Designed with sustainability in mind, it’s predicted Caribbean Park will have 40 percent less greenhouse gas emissions, compared to standard non Greenstar accredited buildings.
At the forefront of sustainable design, EDGE Architectural was put forward and selected by the team behind Caribbean Park; CBRE, Jacobs Architects and Oculus, to supply first class, Australian made double glazed aluminium windows and doors. Caribbean Park will feature EDGE Architectural’s double glazed MAX™ 150mm structural glazed frames, as well as some new sections designed specifically for external sunshade features. Currently MAX™ sub sills are being installed.
EDGE Architectural is excited and honoured to be part of yet another sustainable commercial development. Here are some progress photos of Caribbean Gardens so far.

Caribbean Park’s commitment to sustainability
- Caribbean’s enthusiastic approach to sustainability and the environment can be appreciated by the investments already made in the Australian leading “Greenstar” and “NABERS” methods of development. By following the standards to the letter Caribbean Park’s high quality business park will achieve a 40% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions compared to non Greenstar/NABERS accredited buildings.
- Construction of the manmade lake has created a new habitat for many bird and fish species. The lake is populated with trout and platypus while the lake shores and islands have become a sanctuary for a number of bird species including pelicans.
- Caribbean Park has designated the Caribbean lake and reed bed system as a wildlife corridor therefore ensuring future generations of wildlife continue to have the exchange of population between neighbouring habitats required for a high level of biodiversity.
- Caribbean Park is a host and sponsor of the “The 2014 Kermesse Championships” which highlights the assorted outdoor activities available in the Park. Whether it is biking, various walking tracks or just relaxing in the outdoors Caribbean has a large focus on uniting workers and the outdoor environment.
- We ensure to re-use a percentage of building materials, to improve the life cycle of our construction.
