Vue has a comprehensive lighting design to the facade which through sensors dynamically represents the surrounding activity on both the pedestrian path and adjacent Adelaide Terrace roadway.
Obtained a plot ratio bonus for providing a design incubator, The Guerrilla Establishment, two offices within the development.
On sustainability, bubbledeck used in Vue Tower as opposed to the traditional form slab method, saved approximately:
• 4,100 cubic metres of site concrete;
• 656 ready mix truck trips;
• 6970 t of foundation load;
• 6970 GJ energy embodied in production & haulage; and
• 1107 t of CO2 emissions.
Vue achieved an average 8 star NatHERS energy rating.
Double glazing was used throughout.
Vue includes the installation of a central heat pump type hot water system. This avoids the inefficiencies of electric storage hot water systems which should see energy savings of more than 65% and a similar reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.
