The University of New South Wales commissioned Spinifex and Wizard Projects, through the builder - Brookfield Multiplex, to design and develop a showcase for this groundbreaking project. The Tyree Energy Technology Building hosts research into clean energy technology, and will also feature some of the latest technology in its own design. Only the third 6 star Green Star rated building in Australia, it will be a model for the future.
The showcase itself is a 7m interactive canvas, comprised of 12 daisy-chained touch screens. The display provides access for visitors to a wealth of information, from a high-level induction into the design principles to engaging explanations of the building features and a live data visualization aggregating the building metrics, such as energy consumption, solar harvesting, water and gas usage.
In fact, the data visualization is an important compliance factor for the Green Star rating, allowing the building owners to monitor and manage usage based on the insights provided through the metrics.
