We check out how this eco-friendly high-rise building protects its glass awnings
Masterfully designed to integrate leading smart technology with maximum environmental credentials, this aesthetically dynamic high-rise building, located in a prominent CBD location, is Brisbane’s first 6-star, Greenstar Office.
Committed to Environmentally Sustainable Design (ESD), sustainability specialists worked with the design team to ensure the building performs very highly across all ESD measures.
This building has a 6 Star, Greenstar Office V3 GBCA grading and a 5.5 Star NABERS energy rating. These assessments will provide corporates with significant operating cost efficiencies (particularly in respect to water and energy consumption) as well as providing a positive work environment to stimulate staff and maximise productivity.
The building’s facade features a dramatic motif of the Brisbane River which is highly recognisable from a number of vantage points throughout the city and becomes a theme throughout the development.
EnduroShield® Professional for glass was chosen to protect and maintain the 950m2 glass awnings of the building. EnduroShield was chosen for its sustainable maintenance and cleaning properties.
I & H Contractors, fabricators and designers of curtain wall systems, provided the glass awnings for the project. I & H are trained and certified to pre-apply EnduroShield to glass in factory, prior to installation. The EnduroShield treated surfaces will assist with maintaining a clean appearance, significantly reducing cleaning costs and ongoing maintenance.
