477 Pitt Street recognised in energy efficiency award
Built in 1992, 477 Pitt Street is a Sydney CBD mixed-use building needed major works to meet the modern energy efficient standards of an A Grade property. Plant and equipment also needed a significant upgrade. The works were completed over three stages between 2007 and 2014.
The final energy ratings were way beyond expectations going from an initial low of 2.5 stars in 2007–08 to 5.5 stars in 2013–14. The base building average daily electricity has been reduced by 60%.
The significant energy efficiency achievements of the works were recognised at the Energy Productivity in Action 2015 event organised by the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage.
