The Ernst and Young centre is part of a new breed of “smart” buildings designed to be organic and responsive to its workforce. Having been awarded a 6 star green rating the building has become one of Australia’s most sustainable buildings. The $600 million green building with a 37-floor tower, spanning 39,200 square metres was developed by Mirvac, and will be home to global accountancy firm EY for the next decade.
In keeping with the sustainable theme, all the blinds throughout the building were made using Accoya wood with a mfree-SCCF system from the Permasteelisa Group. As one of the country’s first fully LED lit buildings all the Accoya blinds are automatic – adjusting throughout the day based on the influx of light. The blinds were developed alongside a triple-glazed façade design ensuring there’s plenty of natural light coming into the building.
