ARA Property Services attended a site tour today of the premium grade, Collins Square Facility.

A five star NABERS rated facility, located in Melbourne, Collins Square is the second largest mixed-use development in Australia and is at the leading edge of high quality building design and operation.

The 250 square facility, houses 35 tenants and 20,000 people. The facility has four towers with the fifth currently under construction.

As part of the presentation, ARA Property Services listened to how the Collins Square team are utilising the tri-generation system, rainwater harvesting, a solar array, regenerative lifts and a detailed tuning program to meet and exceed their NABERS rating goals, and achieve a six star NABERS rating in tower three.

Out of the 1,200 buildings in Melbourne’s CBD only three have achieved a six star NABERS rating. One of the three is the 321 Exhibition Street building which ARA Property Services/CMC provides contract cleaning and maintenance services to.

The tour and presentation was arranged by the Facilities Management Association.
