Integreco has just been awarded the contract for the ESD, BASIX and thermal comfort work for Billbergia’s ‘Block C’ at Wentworth Point Marinas.
The previous stage, Block B, was also assessed by Integreco and this scored an impressive average of 5.9 stars for the thermal comfort. To put this in perspective, BASIX targets can actually be passed with an average rating as low as 3.5 stars.
With Block C, Integreco and Billbergia once again intend to apply their innovative techniques for water saving, energy efficiency and passive thermal comfort. In particular, Billbergia’s use of thermal mass, shading devices, cross ventilation and double glazing will, no doubt, ensure another benchmark performance for the Sydney multi-residential market.
Located in Wentworth Point, ‘Block C’ is envisaged to be a mixed-use (residential/commercial) project containing approximately 700 to 800 apartments, street retail frontages and up to 4 levels of car parking. The buildings themselves will be between 4 and 25 storeys, sitting on top of a varying podium level. Billbergia aim to lodge the DA in mid-2014.
Shown on the right is Regatta at Wentworth Point Marinas, the latest release from the joint venture between AMP Capital and Billbergia. Designed by Scott Carver Architects, Regatta’s architecture includes double-glazed, floor-to-ceiling glass in every apartment and many apartments with wintergardens, providing thermal buffering and outdoor spaces that can be enjoyed all year round.
