Advancing environmental efficiency
From its design to its delivery, EY Centre has had sustainability at its heart – setting new benchmarks for sustainability and heritage interpretation.
EY Centre is one of Australia’s most environmentally advanced and sustainable buildings, representing World Leadership in environmental sustainability practices. From its world-first automated Closed Cavity facade to its exclusively LED lighting, the building optimises energy efficiency on all fronts. Air quality is improved via minimisation of VOCs and formaldehyde, and sophisticated building analytics enable constant monitoring of energy and water use. Sustainable commuting is made easy for tenants through the building's location close to public transport, and by the inclusion of 300 bicycle spaces and End of Trip facilities.
EY Centre's base building has achieved a 6 Star Green Star Office Design and 6 Star Green Star Office As-Built rating, a 5.5 Star NABERS Energy rating and a 3.5 Star NABERS Water rating.
Australian first GOLD WELL Certification
Mirvac’s tenancy at EY Centre is at the forefront of health and wellbeing, having achieved the first GOLD WELL Certification in Australia.
Mirvac secured this accolade by placing employees at the centre of its design decisions and actively promoting the health and wellbeing of its workforce. Partnering with the International WELL Building Institute, Mirvac achieved credits across seven categories including air, water, nourishment, light, fitness, comfort and mind.
Mirvac's headquarters has achieved a 6 Star Green Star Interior and a 6 Star Green Star As-Built rating, and is targeting a 5.5 Star NABERS Energy rating and 3.5 Star NABERS Water rating.
EY Centre also features a water recycling system to reduce potable water consumption and a comprehensive water metering system to monitor and manage potable water usage.
Water meters have been installed on high water usage equipment such as the building cooling towers to monitor and control consumption and added to areas such as the Fire Test System and the End of Trip facilities to research usage and feedback information into future developments.
