6 star NABERS at One Darling Island

Our strong focus on asset management has seen us achieve another 6 star NABERS Energy rating in our office portfolio.

Mirvac Scores a 6 star NABERS Energy rating at One Darling Island, Pyrmont

Our One Darling Island office precinct in Pyrmont recently achieved a 6 star NABERS Energy rating without the use of GreenPower, becoming the third asset in our Office portfolio to achieve this coveted rating.

The asset is now one of only nine buildings in Australia to hold a base building 6 Star NABERS Energy rating.

Sustainability Manager, David Palin, said the combination of a high quality, flexible base building, the team’s firm focus on driving energy efficiency and its investment in renewable energy, and the commitment and contribution of its valued partners made this achievement possible.

“Mirvac designed and constructed the building in 2006 with embedded flexibility, which has allowed for continual improvements to be made to its environmental performance. Our team has worked ever since to capitalise on this potential by implementing a range of energy efficiency initiatives, such as the installation of 100kW of solar on the roof of the building in 2017.

“As a result, energy consumption has reduced by 28 per cent and carbon emissions have decreased by 39 per cent since FY13, the baseline year of our sustainability strategy, This Changes Everything. This performance also directly contributes to Mirvac’s target to be net positive in carbon by 2030.

“Our partners have played a key role in improving the building’s operational efficiency and we are incredible proud of what we have been able to collectively achieve.”

The A-grade asset, which covers over 22,000 square metres of office space, is currently performing 1.5 Stars above its NABERS Energy Design target. 6 stars is the highest possible NABERS Energy rating and indicates market leading environmental performance.

Dennis Lee, Senior Team Leader in the Strategic Delivery Office at the Office of Environment and Heritage said, “One Darling Island has joined an elite group of buildings in the top 1 per cent nationally at this level of performance.”

Our nearby Bay Centre office, also in Pyrmont, was the first building in NSW to achieve 6 star NABERS Energy rating in 2016 and recently received the Green Globe Built Environment Award for its environmental excellence, innovation and leadership.

Meanwhile Sirius House in Canberra was the first building in Australia to achieve a 6 Star NABERS Energy rating, a 6 Star NABERS Water rating and a 6 Star Green Star Performance rating, without the use of GreenPower or externally sourced recycled water.
