275 George Street, Brisbane – Case Study

Andrew Gentner

Abstract: 275 George Street, Brisbane provides approximately 40,000m² of ‘A Grade’ commercial office space for the Brisbane CBD. Energy Simulation was undertaken for the NABERS 4.5 Star Commitment Agreement, Green Star submission, BCA Section J performance solution and Building Energy Tracking. The building has now completed its first year of operation and achieved its official 4.5 Star NABERS Energy Rating. This paper will review: • How the Energy Simulation influenced the design of the building. • Limitations of the simulation. • Review of design default figures and assumptions. • Comparison of energy simulations undertaken for NABERS, Green Star and BCA Compliance. • Comparison of the simulation results with the first twelve months of actual operational energy consumption.
