Commercial Office, Gold Coast
Opus House, on the Gold Coast, is set to be the first net zero energy and Passivhaus Certified commercial space in Australia.
The project is a mixed-use development comprising commercial office space and a mechanical workshop. Currently, the building is being designed to achieve, at minimum, a certification under the Passivhaus standard. This will ensure it achieves a world-leading level of performance, relating to indoor environment quality, comfort and energy efficiency.
The building will provide best-practice, occupant-centric spaces, with a strong focus on indoor environment quality. The assessment under the WELL and Green Star tools seek to consider how this might be built on with additional achievements.
