The solar panelling will supply power to assist in the running of common area energy needs such as lights, pumps, lifts, ventilation etc. The huge rainwater-harvesting tank will hold 280 kilolitres of water from the roof, providing water for the gardens and toilet flushing, thus further reducing costs.
The majority of suites are air conditioned by variable refrigerant volume (VRV) using eco-friendly refrigerant gas to cool the air without the need for a large water-cooling tower. The rest of Lifestyle Working utilises natural ventilation and passive energy techniques, further reducing energy costs.
One of the largest amount of PV solar panels of any building in the country, to substantially generate power for the supply of the common area electricity needs - a huge saving! The public space is naturally ventilated with clever engineering and design providing air flow and convection currents.
