Princess Street ESD and Solar, Petrie Terrace

Project No. 6791

The BE Collective team were commissioned to provide ESD (Environmentally Sustainable Design) consultancy services on a fantastically designed bespoke home in Brisbane’s Petrie Terrace. We were thrilled to work in close cahoots with Owen Architecture – of whom we’re big fans.

We undertook the required energy efficiency analysis, satisfying the requirements for a Class 1 building in Queensland, covering insulation, glazing, shading, energy use, air conditioning, and lighting.

Our works also included design and specification for a large solar photovoltaic system, capable of generating 6.5 kilowatts of energy. We designed a tailor-made system for a FIFO worker, using in-depth analysis of energy demand and usage patterns. 3D modelling and hourly energy usage and generation data profiles were used to evaluate a range of solar energy options. This energy will be stored in one of the first Tesla Powerwall 2’s ever to be fitted in Australia.  The Powerwall 2’s 14kWh capacity Li-ion battery means the home will be effectively energy self-sufficient. As you’d expect this had the Musk-enthusiasts in the office waving their high-tech sustainably-sourced fan banners.
