    Helping clients achieve Section J compliance under the JV3 option is something we do often – and it usually sees us working closely with architects and designers, tweaking and finessing the plans to meet compliance.

    Keeping to their vision is something we take seriously. And it proved to be a challenge on the St Mary’s Primary School project.

    There were a number of design modifications that needed to happen in order for the building to meet energy requirements. Still, through modelling, simulation and analysis, we were able to come up with ways that hit those standards – all while retaining the original design intent.

    Green Star initiatives are much easier to implement if they’re brought in during the design phase. Knowing that, the project management team at Holmesglen called on SDC in the very early stages of their new development, Building 6.

    Working closely with the entire design team – from the client to the architect and building services engineers – we assessed and helped refine the design to maximise credit points towards their Green Star rating.

    One of the main problems that came up was water supply. Holmesglen wanted to collect water from the roof to use for toilets, air conditioning and landscape irrigation. But their roof was too small to collect the volume they’d need. So we helped reconfigure the design to collect water from the roof of an adjoining building – which made up for the shortfall.

    With the addition of some of our other initiatives, the client did get the Green Star rating they wanted – a 5-star rating in fact.
