39 Hunter Street

In 2012, heritage-listed 39 Hunter Street underwent a major upgrade.

A.G. Coombs was nominated by building owners the Kador Group to provide base building HVAC and mechanical services maintenance to help ensure the building retains its impressive environmental performance whilst fulfilling the needs of the tenant and maintaining the quality of the asset.

The facility incorporates state-of-the-art building services including energy efficient central plant chillers and boilers, air conditioning and ventilation systems, and lighting systems. Along with delivering base building HVAC and mechanical services maintenance, A.G. Coombs (NSW) helped to improve compliance certification processes and further improve the building’s environmental performance. A detailed fire matrix was prepared, and a range of additional energy optimisation opportunities were identified. These included a Building Energy Optimisation Program to ensure the building’s new energy consuming systems operate at maximum efficiency.

Other system modifications have also further enhanced the building’s environmental performance including improvements to the site’s waste system.

Ongoing effective maintenance of 39 Hunter Street is critical in our efforts to retain and even improve the energy performance of this 6 Star Green Star heritage listed facility.
