LENDLEASE BARANGAROO SOUTH
A 7.5 hectare precinct recognised as one of the greenest and most advanced financial districts in the world, incorporating a mix of uses and accommodating around 1,800 residents, 23,000 office workers and over 22,000 m2 of cutting edge retail stores. Lendlease’s commitment to sustainability extended to features such as, carbon neutral operations, a twenty percent embodied carbon reduction and the measurement of the precinct overall ecological footprint.
INVOLVEMENT AND OUTCOME
TFC’s online software platform was customised for Lendlease to support multiple environmental assessment targets. The online platform was used by the Lendlease Design team to calculate the embodied carbon footprint of the base buildings, tenancies and public realm. The team applied it to materials scenario analysis to identify and quantify pathways to achieve the required 20% reduction target. The Retail Design team used the software to assess the life cycle (materials and operational carbon) of 88 retail tenancy fitouts, including providing detailed carbon design reviews, advice and defecting (achieving an overall average of 30% improvement). TFC carried out the overall precinct ecological footprint assessment which validated world leadership.
BRINGING IT ALL TOGETHER
TFC’s industry leading life cycle software and sustainable design expertise enabled the cost efficient quantification, target achievement and technical quality required by Lendlease to deliver on their related project development commitments. Our tenancy interiors software was a foundation management tool for efficient design delivery and validation. Our buildings and precinct tool is the only one of its type to be adaptable to the complexity of a project of this scale.
