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.

This all adds up to lower running costs, less emissions and waste and a healthier working environment.
