The major refurbishment of several office buildings in the Canberra CBD over the past couple of years has attracted several high calibre tenants to the area, and another building is hoping to benefit from the trend.

The refurbishment of 17 Moore Street, owned by CorVal, will be completed in the coming months.

Benn Vicic, senior asset manager at CorVal said they worked closely with architects Peckvonhartel on the building’s core design upgrades to improve tenant amenity.

The program includes refurbishment of the façade and entrance point, as well as upgrades to upper floor lift lobbies and bathrooms.

Tenancy area upgrades include new carpet, ceilings and LED lighting, which will significantly reduce tenancy occupancy costs, Vicic said.

“We believe property owners have an obligation to limit the environmental impact of their investments and this fundamental belief has driven the sustainability upgrades at 17 Moore Street,” he said.

“In 2016, we started works on a BMS tuning and retro commission program, culminating in an extensive 211 panel, 56 kilowatt solar photovoltaic system which resulted in the building achieving a 5-star NABERS Energy rating.

“Once fully leased, the systems have the capacity to achieve 5.5-stars, which if achieved will make 17 Moore Street the first pre-existing building in Canberra to reach this level.”

Located on the corner of Barry Drive and Moore Street in Civic, 17 Moore Street has 5,750 square metres of office space available to lease across six levels with 65 secure basement car spaces.

The floor plates of approximately 1,000 square metres is suitable for a variety of fitout designs and working environments.

Colliers International and Raine and Horne Commercial are the appointed leasing agents.

Michael Ceacis, director of office leasing at Colliers International, said:

“17 Moore Street is the only refurbished office building in Canberra CBD that has achieved a 5-star NABERS Energy rating.

“We know that many tenants seeking office accommodation in the City are looking for modern and energy efficient space, and with the refurbishment works at 17 Moore Street nearing completion, it will be an attractive option for all tenant types.

“This landmark structure will embody modern design and the latest environmental technology, resulting in the highest standards of workplace collaboration and energy efficiency.”

Nick Cotis, director of operations at Raine & Horne Commercial said all works at 17 Moore Street were anticipated to be completed in May.
