Hickory maximises daylight penetration while minimising solar access designed to achieve 4-star energy efficiency

An A Grade five level office building with a three level underground car park, Punt Rd has been designed to achieve a 4-star NABERS energy efficiency rating.

Extensive shading minimises solar access while maximising daylight penetration into the building. With the site being located so close to the Yarra River and City Link Tunnel, it made the basement construction extremely challenging. However this was overcome by working closely with experienced, competent engineers and subcontractors.
