Energy Services Agreement Building Upgrade Guarantees 4.0 Star NABERS Rating for Landmark Building in Perth

99 St Georges Terrace is a 13-floor office tower with podium level retail suites set in a prominent corner location near Howard Street in Perth CBD. The property is managed by Colliers International (WA) and the HVAC is maintained by BSA Limited using a Tridium Niagara Building Management System.

Perth’s recent market downturn and resulting low occupancy situation have pushed the building’s NABERS Energy Performance down to Zero (0.0) Stars.

This made attracting tenants to vacant floors and suites a difficult proposition for Colliers International (WA). Also, the building’s ageing plant and equipment posed significant reliability issues for BSA Limited, resulting in escalating operational and maintenance costs for the landlord.

The Owner sought guidance from Colliers International to develop a strategy to address these issues and increase the building’s commercial attractiveness for potential tenants and buyers. Colliers International engaged 3E Group – a fast-growing Tier-1 Energy Services Company (ESCO) since 2002 and Australia’s largest independent provider of turn-key energy conservation solutions and guaranteed energy savings projects.
