  • Natural cross ventilation designed into bedroom and living areas
  • All living areas, bedrooms and bathrooms have high levels of natural light
  • Recycled timber floors and doors (from the demolished 7 Parker Street premises) and recycled carpet tiles have been incorporated
  • Sustainable plantation timber has been used for structure and stairs and for joinery
  • Paints with low volatile organic compounds (VOCs) were used in conjunction with low formaldehyde emittance joinery
  • Thermal insulation levels of the building are significantly above Building Code Standards
  • Double glazing was installed in living areas
  • Low energy compact fluorescent downlights have been used throughout
  • An LPG fired hydronic panel radiant heating system has been incorporated to maximise thermal comfort whilst minimising energy use and associated greenhouse emissions
