A number of new developments in South Australia have taken advantage of the increased availability of innovative technologies to reduce their environmental impact - both during construction and throughout their useful lifespan.
Commercial real estate projects such as the Adelaide Convention Centre have been the focus of modern refurbishments that have managed to net the venue a Silver Green Globe for its sustainable running practices - the first in Australia to do so.
The redevelopment of Victoria Square - also known as Tardanyangga - as a people-friendly destination has also incorporated elements of water conservation and innovative energy-reducing construction techniques.
In turn these practices will help to reduce the upkeep costs of the civic destination while making the surrounding office properties that much more desirable as a corporate address.
Advanced building techniques have also been put to use in the redevelopment of the Quins building located in the Port Adelaide district.
As part of the region's ongoing revitalisation project, the commercial property has been converted from retail apartments into high-quality office space.
In addition, the developers have made use of a mix of passive design and renewable energy sources to produce a rejuvenated building that is actually carbon-negative - that is to say that the technologies incorporated in its design actually reduce the amount of carbon emissions produced by surrounding addresses.
