Illuminating the Future

The $55m GE HQ is a 15,000m2 office building consists of six stories with two levels of basement carparking. The building has been designed to achieve a 5 Star NABERS rating and is targeting a 5 Star As-Built Office v3 rating.

Kane Constructions appointed Umow Lai to provide schematic D&C design for all building services with a continuing sustainability leadership role throughout all project phases to assist them in delivering the targeted As Built 5 Star Green Star rating.

Umow Lai have also been engaged to provide post-occupancy survey services for GE. Initial surveys were conducted with staff in GE’s previous tenancy and those results will be compared with that from a post-occupancy survey to follow after 6 months of occupancy in their new Headquarters at Springfield. This will provide additional valuable feedback into the design process, future Umow Lai projects and the broader sustainable buildings industry.
