Woodcroft Community Centre is our northern green hub demonstration site. It showcases the type of building upgrades and systems that businesses can put in place to reduce energy and water consumption, waste to landfill and greenhouse gas emissions.
The centre is home to the Woodcroft Library, Council Customer Services and Woodcroft-Morphett Vale Neighbourhood Centre.
Free tours are available on request, so why not be inspired on changes you could make to your business to be a little greener and save money in the process.
