The Ausgrid Learning Centre was awarded a 6 Star Green Star – Education Design v1 rating.
Designed with a number of features to reduce energy and water use in mind, one of the most important features is the ability of the building to monitor and display its energy and water use helping staff to recognise and reduce their impact. The Centre involved the construction of a multiple-storey training facility, basement car parking, service areas and external landscape and training yard areas. Works included general building works, fitout and FF&E works, landscaping, structural and civil and services works including communications and lifts, signage and fencing. Featuring gas driven tri-generation power utilising 55 geothermal bores for heat rejection, 260 photo voltaic panels with a 51kW capacity, rainwater harvesting and grey water re-use, the new education facility represents green building 'World Leadership'. The $75 million centre is the headquarters of Ausgrid’s smart grid operations and energy efficiency centre.
