Case Study – Surf Coast Shire Civic Building, Torquay

Torquay, Victoria is known by surfers from across the globe as home to the iconic Bells Beach. It is also home to the multi-award winning Surf Coast Shire Civic Building.

Background
Born out of a desire to reflect the local community’s environmental consciousness the Surf Coast Shire Civic Building has been awarded a 5-Star Green Star Office Design V3 rating by the Green Building Council of Australia.

The project was recognised at the 2012 Victorian NECA Awards for Excellence winning the Energy Efficiency and Environment category against some stiff competition.

The Surf Coast Shire Civic Building also received international acclaim at the 2012 KNX Awards held in Frankfurt where it was the recipient of an International Best Project Award. This award is recognition of the numerous energy saving features of the building, all managed by a KNX open protocol solution designed, delivered and optimised by mySmart.
