The Group continued to demonstrate excellence in
sustainability across its office portfolio in FY16,
with two of its existing assets achieving 6 Star Green Star ratings.
23 Furzer Street in Phillip, ACT was the first building in Australia to increase its Green Star rating from a 5 Star Green Star Office Design rating to a 6 Star Green Star Performance rating. 23 Furzer Street was also the first major property in Australia to attain a 6 Star NABERS Energy rating without GreenPower.
In recognition of its outstanding environmental performance, 23 Furzer Street was awarded the Facility Management Award at the Chartered Institute of Building Services Engineers Awards in London. Earlier in the financial year, it received the Facility Management Industry Energy Efficiency Award and was named the Best Commercial Building Energy Efficiency Project by the Energy Efficiency Council.
275 Kent Street in Sydney, NSW also achieved a 6 Star Green Star Performance rating, becoming one of the first buildings in Australia to do so, while 8 Chifley Square, Sydney NSW achieved a 5 Star NABERS Energy rating and 5 Star NABERS Water rating.
Mirvac’s ongoing commitment to sustainability across its office portfolio resulted in a 5.1 Star NABERS average energy rating, a result of targeted capital investment and a strong focus on operational efficiency.
