06.08.2014 GBCA Site Tour : Cloisters on Hay


Come inside the Cloisters on Hay project, a nine-storey commercial tower built on top of the existing Cloisters Arcade, a 42 year old structure and Perth’s busiest retail arcade.

Subtly rising above the Cloisters Arcade, the tower presents a contemporary office façade with a sustainable core. Home to global engineering firm Aurecon, the building incorporates:

  • motion sensor controlled lighting to reduce energy consumption,
  • blinds to control glare,
  • generous end of trip bike and shower facilities
  • High level of IEQ delivered through reduced VOC’s, low internal noise levels, controlled thermal comfort and external views for 60% of the office space.

This challenging project also navigated heritage constraints and community concerns, preserving the historic Cloisters building and an important Port Jackson Fig Tree.

Having already achieved a Green Star Design v3 rating, the project team is now targeting a 5 Star Green Star Office Interiors rating. Want to find out how they did it?
