Architect: Roxby Architects
Project Value: Approx $8.4M
Completion Date: August 2013
The new WA Head Office for Toyota is comprised of a two storey building with administration, reception, conference utility & amenity areas. The building is the first 5 star Greenstar building in WA outside of the Perth CBD. Roxby Architects also won the coveted Australian Institute of Architects WA Architecture Awards, George Temple Poole Award, for its work on the building.
Steens Gray & Kelly were a key contributor to the building achieving its Greenstar rating, as well as supporting the architectural team in its aesthetic vision. Key mechanical design features included:
- The use of heat recovery ventilators on the ducted split air conditioning units
- The use of natural ventilation through public areas of the building to make use of adventitious climatic conditions. It is which is predicted to provide a comfortable interior environment for 60 per cent of the year without air-conditioning.
- An interactive learning display in the foyer to highlight building performance. This aligns with the project aspiration to be a leader in sustainability and also acts as a means for the Client to manage consumption in an ongoing basis.
