Passive Chilled Beams
The utilisation of Frenger's "Radiant" chilled beams throughout Macquarie Bank's new harbor side office at One Shelley Street has made a significant contribution to the building's attainment of a GBCA 6 Star Green Star Rating. The building claims new levels of sustainability - it claims to cut greenhouse emissions by 50% compared to a conventional Sydney office building - and has received numerous accolades including the 2010 Property Council of Australia Innovation and Excellence Awards (Overall Winner/Award for Office Developments).
Frenger undertook extensive project scenario testing at their UK laboratories to demonstrate the environmental conditions that will be realised in the various internal spaces, including general office areas, meeting rooms and offices for senior staff. The striking external facade treatment of this 10-story 32,000m complex makes it a new Sydney landmark and Frenger are justifiably proud to have supplied nearly 2000 of their unique "Radiant" convective chilled beam to the project.
