360 Collins St sits at the heart of Melbourne’s historic banking district. The refurbishment project represents an important opportunity to revitalise this property and to improve connectivity between Little Collins Street and Collins Street by creating a seamless working, social and meeting environment that benefits from a combination of indoor and outdoor spaces.

The north facing plaza is enhanced through the provision of new retail shopping and podium office floors will feature campus-sized floorplates and open terraces, while a new atrium will enhance natural light.

The development is targeting an improved NABERS Energy rating. Sustainability initiatives include a chilled beam air-conditioning system, thermally-efficient new façade, efficient lifts, LED light fittings and an upgraded building management system that will improve environmental performance, comfort and amenity.

With efficiency at the forefront Armcor provided the Heat Recovery solution with 2 x 1200 l/sec Fan Coil units and 1 x 400 l/sec ceiling mounted Fan Coil Unit. Equipment was specified to comply with the noise criteria, and supplied complete with chilled and hot water coils and washable pleated air filters.

Even though this is a small project for Armcor, we are certainly pleased to be associated with an efficient building upgrade of this calibre.
