Goodman energy initiative wins award

A commitment to environmental sustainability was the catalyst for a large-scale project to improve the energy performance of Goodman’s office portfolio in the VXV Precinct, the commercial area between the Viaduct and Wynyard Quarters of Auckland City.

Project Scope

The project involved a number of discreet stages. Initially focusing on mechanical services, the scope was extended to encompass all aspects of building performance.  A key factor in the programme’s success was securing the appropriate resourcing and technical capability, including the use of external consultants Energy Solution Providers.
