Brindabella Business Park is a high-tech, quality, campus-style commercial office development, constructed using leading edge techniques and sustainable building practices. Brindabella Business Park is arguably Australia’s greenest business centre; incorporating a number of landmark sustainable buildings, achieving a number of environmental “firsts” and being the deserving recipient of a number of environmental achievement awards.
One of these landmark buildings is 8 Brindabella Circuit, which was awarded 5 stars (As Built) under the Green Star rating system of the Green Building Council of Australia – the first and highest rating ever awarded in Australia at the time.
8 Brindabella Circuit then set the benchmark with a program of continuous improvement for all subsequent buildings in the Business Park.
Brindabella Business Park was the first development in Australia to use recycled concrete and steel on a commercial scale, resulting in buildings that use less embodied energy and more recycled materials. Other “firsts” in Canberra include waterless urinals and commercial property water recycling plants. A “first” on a national scale is tri-generation, producing 75% less carbon dioxide than a standard office building and 55% less than a 5 star rated building (detailed further in “Energy Consumption & Renewable Energy”). Brindabella Business Park also hosts some of Australia’s most advanced water saving technologies, reducing our dependency on scarce town water supplies.
