The Molonglo Group is committed to environmental sustainability

At 221 London our commitment extends from implementation of simple measures, such as increased bicycle storage, to more significant initiatives such as:

  1. Full replacement of the building’s central air-conditioning plant;
  2. Modification of the existing windows on all floors to increase daylight penetration and thermal comfort within the building;
  3. A fully controlled Building Management System (BMS) to ensure the building is run at maximum efficiency;
  4. This project has achieved a 4.5 star NABERS rating. The Molonglo Group has worked with some of the most advanced building technologies and with a world-renowned team of specialists committed to reducing environmental footprints of existing commercial buildings; and
  5. Conducting a series of Property Council of Australia (PCA) “A” grade upgrades to strengthen the building’s credentials.

The refurbishment of 221 London has adopted exemplar Ecological Sustainable Design (ESD) principles to lead this shift towards greening Canberra’s existing building stock. This once tired and poor performing asset is now liberated by addressing energy efficiency, water efficiency, waste minimisation, occupant comfort and the full range of Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) characteristics.
