2016 Solar Design and Installation Award - Grid-Connect 15 kW - 100 kW

Our award winning project was a 99.9 kW solar PV installation at 747 Collins St. in Melbourne, an 18 storey high rise building. The project was selected as the winner by an independent panel of solar experts from what was described as a “highly competitive group of finalists” by the Clean Energy Council’s Accreditation Manager Sandy Atkins.

2015 "Global Urban Award" for Commercial Building

We managed the project, which included upgrading Chifley Tower to a NABERS 4.5 star rating providing benefits to both the owner and tenants, cutting greenhouse emissions by 55%, and repositioning an older building in a very competitive real estate market.
