    In June, the City of Sydney signed an Environmental Upgrade Agreement (EUA) to fund energy efficient lighting, air conditioning and building management system (BMS) upgrades to James’ Hall  in Sydney. Under these agreements tenants provide contributions equal to or less than the savings they make in their utility bills as a result of the upgrade works. These contributions can then be used by the building owner to service the loan repayments and greatly improve the return on investment.  In addition, once the EUA is paid off, the tenants and building owner continue to benefit from reduced utility bills.

    This latest chapter is a massive wake up call to the myth that all things new and shiny are good. It lifts the veil on one of the true scandals of the property world – one of waste and landfill, leaving a trail of toxic chemicals, expense and depleted resources in its wake.
