Mirvac’s flagship Sydney commercial development, the EY Centre at 200 George Street, has won the SAS International Award for Best Office Development at the Property Council of Australia’s 2018 National Innovation & Excellence Awards.  

Campbell Hanan, Mirvac's head of office and industrial, said they knew the the EY Centre was going to be an important building.

“We are incredibly proud that the hard work of the Mirvac team and our partners has been recognised with the achievement of this prestigious Property Council of Australia Award for the EY Centre," Hanan said.

"From the project’s inception, we knew it was going to be an exceptional building that would make a significant contribution to the Sydney CBD community.

"This award is great recognition of the EY Centre and all of those involved in its development.” 

Mirvac worked closely with a number of partners to create the EY Centre and deliver one of Australia’s first ‘smart’ buildings.

Award-winning architects Francis-Jones Morehen Thorp (FJMT) designed a distinctively sculptural, 37-storey building that employs a world-first timber-and-glass closed cavity façade system giving it a unique appearance – an instantly recognisable structure defined by its shimmering, organic, golden-hued curves.

The building’s innovative sustainability credentials and world-class achievements contributed to its success, as the EY Centre has a string of Green Star ratings as well as a 5.5 Star NABERS Energy rating.  

It is also Australia’s first fully LED lit building, resulting in reduced power consumption costs, lower maintenance cycles and a reduction of landfill.

Automated timber blinds, combined with vertical timber shading elements and three layers of performance glazing, combine to create an advanced environmental skin.  

This unique system, the first of its type in Australia, adjusts to external factors and occupant preference.

Mirvac have their HQ in the building on level 28.

Their offices achieved Australia’s first Gold WELL rating from the International WELL Building Institute in 2017.
