Vaughan Constructions on behalf of Jacfin, delivered the national headquarters and distribution centre for airconditioning specialists, Fujitsu General Australia.
The new facility supports the growth of the company and their expanded operational needs, while providing a superior work environment with exceptional staff facilities.
Located in the Jacfin Estate in Eastern Creek New South Wales, on a 35,000m² site, the 11,093m² facility includes a 2,400m² double level office and an 8,500m² warehouse.
The facility is a 5 Star Green Star design and NABERS energy rated building and incorporates sustainable initiatives to reduce its environmental footprint. This matches the company’s sustainability philosophy: to continue to safeguard a rich natural environment for future generations.
Sustainability initiatives are metered and results are projected onto a BMS screen in the reception area for staff and visitors to view. Some of the key initiatives include:
Saving power by utilising natural light. The office space is surrounded by glazing and a large atrium skylight allows for high levels of natural light to enter the facility.
This is in conjunction with light harvesting technology that dims internal lights during the day when natural light is coming in at high levels. This reduces overall power usage and saves energy where possible.
The warehouse also has skylights along the roofing panels to reduce power used for lighting. Furthermore, double glazing contributes to energy performance by assisting with
Solar power system. The facility houses a 365 panel, 100KW solar system on the roof. This significantly supplements power usage throughout the entire facility.
Recycled water collection. Water is collected from rooftops and stored in tanks to be used for irrigation of landscaping, the green wall and for use in toilets.
The new HQ has an ‘employee focus’ with second-to-none end of trip amenities and staff recreation areas including: on-site gymnasium with lockers and shower facilities, outdoor recreation areas, indoor activity spaces, zen garden, café and a covered and secure car park with access to charge electric/ energy efficient vehicles.
Our team was thrilled to attend the official opening ceremony on Tuesday 14th of May to celebrate the completion of a truly outstanding building that is paving the way for sustainable commercial and industrial facilities.
This is the fourth project Vaughan Constructions has collaborated with Jacfin on and our team is proud of this partnership and the achievements we have made together.
