On completion, Building C achieved a higher 5 star Green Star - Office As Built v3 rating.

Sustainability initiatives

In addition to the required Greenstar inclusions, a unique Gas VRV system was also implemented in Building C.

The VRV system is rarely used in Australia despite being a proven technology used extensively throughout Japan and Asia. Advantages of the system include:

  • No pumps or water circuits to create parasitic energy consumption
  • Lower cost to implement compared to a standard centralised VAV system with chiller and boiler
  • Low capital cost
  • Reduction in greenhouse gas emissions
  • Improved carbon footprint
  • Reduced energy costs
