You’ll find that our sustainability credentials benefit the planet and tenants alike. Even from the construction phase, initiatives were optimised to minimise waste and recycle wherever possible, and now our 5-star NABERS Energy Base Building target rating aims to reduce costs for tenants and care for the environment well into the future.
Along with the intelligent Building Services Monitoring System providing smart metering, sustainability targets will be achieved with a number of features:
Water retention systems and modern fixtures that save water
Solar roof panels that harness the sun’s rays to create energy
Smart automation such as responsive lighting and tenant controlled air-conditioning zones
Electric vehicle charging points
Floor to ceiling glass façade with curtain wall glazing, low air-infiltration and high thermal resistance
Enhanced building insulation and high efficiency air-conditioning systems work together to improve the climate inside and out.
Reaching for the stars
Civic Quarter is undoubtedly Canberra’s premier workplace, with preserving and nurturing the environment at the top of its list. CQ is targeting a trio of sustainability ratings to achieve a truly holistic outcome:
– CQ has achieved a 4 Star Green Star – Design & As Built rating from the Green Building Council of Australia, certifying the design, construction and fit-out of the building.
– 5-star NABERS Energy Base Building target rating for ongoing performance and efficiencies.
– Silver Core and Shell Rating to become Canberra’s first WELL certified building to prioritise the health and wellbeing of the building occupants.
With its smart automation, constant optimisation and refinement, CQ will continue to reduce costs for tenants and care for the environment well into the future.
Sustainability features are integral to CQ:

WELLness is a priority
If you’re an organisation that is looking to demonstrate your commitment to your people, then Civic Quarter is the workplace for you. CQ is due to become Canberra’s first WELL certified building, targeting Silver Core and Shell rating, attempting to improve the health and wellbeing of its occupants through the improvement of their nutrition, mood, fitness, sleep and performance, and targeting this rating, requires adherence to strict protocols from operational and maintenance policies, through to stakeholder engagement.
