Our properties are designed to be as climate resilient as possible and include sustainable features that create greater amenity as well as appeal to changing customer needs.
We will be installing more than 100MW of solar panels by 2025, which will reduce on-site operational costs for our customers.
By installing 250kW per 10,000 sqm of space on all future developments, the annual benefit to the customer is approximately $2.5 per sqm. Our standard solar specification allows improved quality, lower maintenance and metering to capture data and measure performance.
We aim to achieve the best performance outcomes, roof height safety, natural light.
Water efficient fixtures and fittings.

Stormwater treatment prior to release.
Rainwater harvesting tanks for water reuse in toilets and landscaping.
Smart irrigation to save water in irrigation.
Potable water smart metering to enable proactive management of water across our portfolio.
LED lighting lasts up to 10 times longer and can result in energy savings of 65-80% compared with halogen. This reduces replacement costs, the number of light bulbs in landfill, and provides optimum lighting comfort. In addition, lights are used only when required due to motion sensors in bathrooms, stairwells and storerooms.
