Northbank Plaza


The Northbank Plaza refurbishment project comprised of over 26,736 metres square of floor space and is a great example of retro-greening. It serves as a model of how older buildings can be improved to achieve positive economic and environmental outcomes.

The main client requirements were to refurbish the building to achieve a Property Council of Australia (PCA) A-grade standard, achieve a minimum 4-star national Australian built environment rating system (NABERS) office energy with a 4.5-star target, upgrade the building to meet current standards and maximise the building’s nett lettable area (NLA).

The upgrade included carbon dioxide monitoring and control, swirl diffusers to maximise comfort levels and dedicated tenant exhaust at each level.
