Perth office building sets CO2 milestone

Workzone West building

As carbon neutrality and climate conscientiousness continue to dominate the global landscape, one Western Australian office building has received the state’s highest sustainability accolade.

Having already been certified as a NABERS Energy six-star building, the Workzone West building, located in central Perth, has now added “carbon-neutral” to its status.  

The building comprises 15,602 square metres of office space and boasts altering lighting schedules, sensor lighting systems as well as an air conditioning control strategy system, all of which allowed for the carbon-neutral certification to be swiftly achieved.

With commercial buildings accounting for nearly 40 per cent of annual global CO2 emissions, the building’s achievement has set a new benchmark for sustainability within the industry, according to Knight Frank facilities manager Janitha Kaushal.

Mr Kaushal said that the initial six-star accomplishment is a major milestone in the company’s concerted effort to develop more climate-friendly facilities.

“We prepared a sustainability roadmap late last year and set a goal to become the first six star carbon neutral building in Western Australia.”

He continued: “Workzone has achieved a NABERS Energy six-star rating for two consecutive years without green power and it has almost three times less electricity consumption than an average Perth office building.

“Having already achieved the six star rating, we had our sights set on achieving the carbon neutral milestone to add to the building’s accomplishments.”

With the achievement, a joint effort between the owner, Elanor Investors Group, and Knight Frank Facilities Management, a five-year sustainability plan has now been implemented to ensure the six-star carbon-neutral status is maintained.
