The CH2 facility will have a 100kW solar system.

1 August 2013 — A new climate-controlled warehouse for healthcare services provider Clifford Hallam Healthcare is being constructed by Australand with sustainability in mind.

The 8140 square metre warehouse will feature a roof-mounted 100 kilowatt solar system, which will provide around 12 per cent of the building’s energy.

All up, there will be 400 solar panels covering a roof area of 1000 sq m, which is estimated to result in significant energy savings for the company.

The completed building will have an estimated end value of $16 million and forms part of stage 3 of Australand’s Eastern Creek Business Park in western Sydney.

The CH2 pre-commitment was arranged by David Black of Salinger & Co Real Estate Advisors who noted that the environmental initiatives will assist in future proofing the building.

Australand General Manager – Northern Region Reini Otter said the CH2 facility demonstrates Australand’s capacity to deliver tailored, flexible and sustainable solutions for its many industrial customers.

“Australand’s in-house sustainability expertise, which covers technical advice and feasibility analysis to full design and construction, means our industrial customers can access state of the art facilities with reduced environmental footprints and enjoy the real cost savings that correspond with our emphasis on sustainability,” Mr Otter said.

The company has developed over 300,000 sq m at its Eastern Creek Business Park, with the estate set to grow by a further 125,000 sq m.
