The iconic QV1 has received an injection of “clean-tech” as we have launched our new electric car share service as part of our premium range of tenant services.
Tackling the call for more assertive corporate ESG goals head on, we have partnered with global electric vehicle manufacturer Mini Australia and local startups MoJo Car Share and Gemtek to offer an electric share car for more convenient trips in and around the city. The market first is underpinned by QV1’s strong commitment to sustainability whilst delivering premium building services to all tenants of the tower. The Mini Electric share car is available free to all QV1 tenants and can be booked exclusively via the QV1 App.
QV1 was designed with sustainability and energy efficiency in mind and was one of the most energy-efficient buildings in Australia at the time of its construction in 1991. Since then, QV1’s building owners have continued to build on this legacy, utilising industry leading practices to maximise sustainability, as demonstrated by QV1’s 5.5 Star NABERS Energy rating.
The unique Seidler horizontal and vertical sun shades, combined with tinted double glazed windows and building services maintained to the highest standard, ensure energy efficiency without compromise to occupant comfort.

QV1 is proud to announce that our building has earned a #WELLHealthSafety Rating, an evidence-based, third-party verified rating that signifies the measures we’ve taken to support the health and safety of our tenants and visitors. Health and safety has, and always will be a key focus for QV1 and we know this verification will instill confidence in those working in, or visiting the QV1 building each day.
The WELL Health-Safety Rating is an evidence-based, third-party verified rating for all new and existing buildings, focusing on operational policies, maintenance protocols, stakeholder engagement and emergency plans to address a post-COVID-19 environment now and into the future. Designed to empower owners to take the necessary steps to prioritise the health and safety of their staff, visitors and stakeholders, the WELL Health-Safety Rating helps to instil confidence in those who come through the buildings as well as the broader community.
The WELL Health-Safety Rating provides a centralised source and governing body to validate efforts made by owners and operators. It leverages insights drawn from the IWBI Task Force on COVID-19, in addition to guidance on the spread of COVID-19 and other respiratory infections developed by the World Health Organization (WHO), U.S. Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), global disease control and prevention centres and emergency management agencies and leading academic and research institutions, as well as core principles already established by IWBI’s WELL Building Standard.
