The building harvests rainwater which is stored in a 40,000L tank for use in amenities flushing and landscaping irrigation. Fire testing water drains down into a 6,000L tank for reuse.
“It is noteworthy that we achieved Six Star Green Star without using black water harvesting or tri-generation. There was a lot of concentration on reduction of potable water use and energy efficiency,” said Grocon Project Manager,Andrew Poulton.
“There are waterless urinals, and all the fixtures and fittings are water efficient. Solar panels have been installed on the roof for the domestic hot water system, and we have used air cooled chillers for the airconditioning. The air conditioning is an under floor system of air diffusers, with individual controls for each seating position.
“The building has a BMS system and an EMS,with all the lighting controlled by sensors.VicUrban (now known as Places Victoria) are planning a central energy plant for the entire precinct, and we have made sure the GSO can connect to that.
“The facade is double glazed, with blinds and sun shading from the timber canopies. A frit pattern has been put on the glazing which acts both as a privacy screen for the work stations and as sun shading. This pattern was based on a survey undertaken by the architects, HASSELL in conjunction with Buro North the signage Consultant, of the local community and reflects
the symbols of the different cultural groups in the Dandenong community.”
The GSO also has 120 bicycle storage spaces including visitor bicycle parking, shower and change rooms to encourage carbon free commuting
