114 William Street
Project Description

Prior to works undertaken by Programmed, 114 William Street held a 2-star NABERS rating, meaning there was scope to improve the overall energy efficiency, indoor environmental quality and sustainability performance of the property. The building was running on high-energy costs, and the existing services were nearing the end of their lifespan, which in turn was leading to high maintenance costs.

Project Solution

Programmed conducted a comprehensive energy audit to evaluate current requirements and identify efficiency measures. Following this, Programmed was able to implement a number of agreed measures to reduce the energy consumption and maintenance costs for the building, including new lighting controls, pumps and motors, and a Bueno Smart Buildings System.

A complete base building energy metering system was installed and commissioned, providing real-time energy use trends, and alerts to the building manager.

Key Achievements

  • Improved air and comfort quality for building occupants.
  • Reduced ongoing reactive maintenance costs from old, inefficient or poorly controlled equipment.
  • A higher level of visibility of the building’s energy use and functionality through improved monitoring and reporting.
  • Increased tenant evaluation and interest from potential buyers.
  • A 3-star NABERS rating, which gave the building a significant increase in value and marketability. Once fully leased, the NABERS rating of the building will increase to 3.5 stars.
  • Reduction in overall energy consumption for the building.

Project Outcome

Programmed’s in-depth site investigation and implementation of agreed efficiency measures has extended the life of existing equipment by four years and reduced the ongoing energy costs.

“The valuation of the building has increased considerably. The Programmed team were even able to advise my client on applicable government grants, which he was able to utilise. I look forward to working with the team on other client buildings.” – Leigh Melbourne (National Director, Capital
