The extensive refurbishment of its StarTrack House building, in Strawberry Hills was an opportunity for Australia Post to make a clear statement about its commitment to reducing energy usage and CO2 emissions.
By undertaking numerous building enhancements with a sustainability focus, including installing the largest commercial rooftop PV (solar) installations in suburban Sydney, the project achieved a 5 Star Green Star Office rating. The project also achieved a 5 Star Green Star As Built rating, and a 5 Star Green Star Interiors v1.1 rating for the Australia Post fitout. It is the first refurbished office building in Australia to receive the triple 5 star ratings under v3 of the Green Star ratings methodology.
Norman Disney & Young (NDY) was instrumental in developing many of the unique solutions utilised to reposition this 26,000 sq m building as a new and market leading asset.
