Fishermans Bend Urban Renewal Area and Charter Hall's Fishermans Bend Urban Renewal Area has become Victoria's first 6 Star NABERS Energy rating.

The internationally lauded building at 171 Collins Street is one of just two commercial office buildings across the country to reach the rating milestone.

Designed by award-winning architects Bates Smart, the building was engineered by Umow Lai and managed by Knight Frank.

A building accredited with 6 Star NABERS Energy rating emits 50 percent less greenhouse gases than a building with a 5 Star rating.

The Collins Street building saves more than 1.3 million kilograms of carbon dioxide each year, equal to 568,000 litres of petrol, or 139 homes' energy use for one year when compared to a building with a 5 Star Nabers Energy Rating.

Home to BHP Billiton, Cbus Property CEO Adrian Pozzo said 171 Collins Street had set a benchmark in sustainability and was a shining example of the drive to create highly sustainable workplaces for the future.

“171 Collins Street is a lighthouse example of how premium grade buildings can deliver architectural beauty, world leading sustainability and exceptional occupant amenities without compromise,” he said.

“It is a true 21st century workplace and embodies all that we strive to achieve at Cbus Property in delivering projects that are of international architectural value and achieve exceptional environmental outcomes.

‘This milestone caps off several years of dedication by the entire project team as well as 171 Collins Street’s tenants in delivering and maintaining a truly green and sustainable building.”

The 171 Collins Street building also became the first premium building in 6 Star Green Star as Built Office V2 rating by the Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA)

It achieved a record 83 points.

In addition it has been recognised at the International Property Awards Asia Pacific, United Nations Association of Australia World Environment Awards and Urban Taskforce Development Excellence Awards.
