A double ventilated facade, improved natural lighting, extensive metering of energy usage and water consumption, plus a rainwater harvesting system are just some of the eco-initiatives incorporated into the building's design by the Australian architects Woods Bagot and their New Zealand architectural partners, Warren and Mahoney. The Deloitte Centre is the first high rise structure in the country to gain a 5 Green Star rating.
When it came to an environmentally-friendly solution for the blinds, the precedent had been established by Luxaflex® with their fit out of the BNZ's office space within the building. Balance M fabric from the Green Screen range had been chosen for the BNZ's 8 floors of offices. Balance M is a PVC-free, fully recyclable material with outstanding solar thermal dynamic properties. It meets all the criteria for sustainability and delivers optimum visibility through its open weave. (Also see the review of our BNZ Queen Street commercial project.)
The architects approved of the product's environmental credentials, its excellent performance and contemporary good looks. They commissioned Luxaflex® to manufacture additional Balance M blinds for a further 9 floors in the Deloitte Centre.
