Brindabella Business Park was constructed using leading edge techniques and sustainable building practices. It 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 five 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. It set the benchmark for continuous improvement for all subsequent buildings in the business parks.
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. We have also installed waterless urinals and commercial property water recycling plants. We were the first in Australia to use tri-generation which produces 75% less carbon dioxide than a standard office building and 55% less than a five star rated building. Brindabella Business Park also hosts some of Australia’s most advanced water saving technologies, reducing our dependency on scarce town water supplies.
The Majura Park buildings emit only a quarter of the carbon dioxide of a conventional building and 60% less water.
