Connan Brown from Norman Disney & Young gave a presentation on a the retrofit of 215 Adelaide Street building which achieved energy savings of 35%. A great technical presentation.
Originally opened in 1982, this major (30,000sqm) commercial office is located in the heart of the Brisbane Central Business District. Through a suite of building services and management strategies, the NABERS energy rating was increased from 2.5 Stars (2010) to 4.5 Stars (2011) without Green Power. This result was achieved without significant disruption to existing tenants. Hear about power factor, energy saving, air-conditioning capacity improvements, smart metering, a successful NABERS thermal energy exclusion and tenant demand for high NABERS rated office space.
