Melbourne 1200 Buildings
The GPT Group's iconic 530 Collins Street office tower is targeting a 5 Star NABERS Energy rating and has become a leading case study in the City of Melbourne's 1200 Buildings program. 530 Collins is now operating one of Melbourne's few onsite co-generation plants, a high efficiency, low carbon power station, from its podium roof. Under an Energy Performance Contract, the performance of the co-generation plant, together with lighting and fit-out upgrades and the installation of new water efficient cooling towers have been guaranteed to achieve the 5 Star NABERS Energy rating.
The 1200 Buildings program aims to encourage and support building owners, managers and facility managers to improve the energy/water efficiency and reduce waste to landfill of commercial buildings in the municipality of Melbourne.
