The cornerstone values and design principles of Lifestyle Working concepts are Triple Bottom Line combining community and culture, the environment & finance. With these three principles at play on all levels of planning and design the result is a winning combination for each participant within the building’s profile. The investors who commit to the project, the environment within the building and its immediate locale, the people who work within it and the community that lives around it will all feel the positive impact of the Lifestyle Working philosophy in action.

The “Lifestyle Working Collins Street ” Owners Corporation Executive will focus and report not only on the economic performance of the building to the owners, but also on the social and environmental performance of the building.

The building has been designed with lower operating costs in mind. Reduced energy needs with low reliance on mechanical ventilation and supplementary solar energy are some of the initiatives that will help keep the operating costs down and contribute to better economic performance.

Social performance relates to the maintenance of ethical conduct and the impact the “Lifestyle Working Collins Street” development has on employees, customers, community, suppliers and business partners.

“Lifestyle Working Collins Street” will contribute to the local community through charitable donations and with relevant supportive activities on an on-going basis.

Sustainable – low on costs, high on efficiency

Lifestyle Working Collins Street will be one of the few commercial strata office buildings to target NABERS 5-star Energy and Water rating and a minimum of 5 Star Green Star. The building is designed as a benchmark leader in sustainable strata office space. The innovations extend to the management of the building where new operations and community investment standards will be set.

The design responds to the following principles of sustainability and community leadership:

  • Equitable sustainable design and operation
  • Next generation sustainable office space
  • Creation of flexible strata offices with shared common facilities to suit the small to medium office market
  • Provision of a semi enclosed courtyard to maximize daylight penetration and natural cross ventilation
  • Solar Lots – individually owned on title, 1.5 kwv solar generation units that are available for sale to owners of suites within Lifestyle Working Collins Street.
  • Solar array to provide energy to the Owners Corporation for part of the operating needs during daylight hours. Additionally, individual owners and tenants can also supplement the energy needs of their individual office suites with extra solar panels as required and/or use of conventional electricity suppliers
  • Water harvesting to supply toilet flushing and landscape watering
  • Waterless urinals

Community

One of the most important features of Lifestyle Working is the vibrant business community it will create. With hundreds of people working within the building each day, owners and tenants will have access to a massive instant network of potential clients, suppliers and friends.

The central courtyard, walkways and bridges provide businesses, staff and customers with a connectivity that allows interaction and a variety of spaces to either work or relax in.

It’s not just advanced thinking. It’s advanced thinking that is already working at Lifestyle Working Brookvale, a creative working environment that has changed the way hundreds of people approach work every day on Sydney’s northern beaches.

In keeping with the Lifestyle Working philosophy of engaging communities within and outside the building, another significant initiative is the annual contribution by the Owners Corporation to local charities – making a meaningful difference. Examples of proposed community initiatives include an art competition, partnership projects with the community garden team and participation in various community events.
