30 The Bond in Sydney achieved a 5.5 star NABERS Energy rating and a 4.0 star NABERS Water rating in FY14, delivering a 10 year track record of leadership in sustainability.
Innovative technologies and a considered approach to design have enhanced the quality of the indoor environment at Sydney’s first 5 star Green Star office building. Optimised resource consumption has reduced greenhouse gas emissions and operating costs.
30 The Bond was the first large scale commercial building in Australia to adopt chilled beam technology. Today chilled beams are widely adopted in new buildings to significantly improve air-conditioning efficiency and tenant comfort, while increasing the building’s usable space.
Other key sustainability features include:
- Natural ventilation and sunrooms providing fresh air to the workspace
- A façade incorporating operable shadings to maximise views and the impact of afternoon sun
- Electricity, water and gas sub-metering allowing on-site building management to track, identify and rectify negative building consumption trends and anomalies
Since the building’s opening in 2005, Dexus has continued to implement operational improvements and efficiencies, ensuring 30 The Bond remains one of Sydney’s most appealing office environments with 100% occupancy at 30 June 2014.
