Ongoing Management & Improvement

Without effective management, a building designed for a 4.5 Star NABERS Energy rating can operate at as little as a 1.5 Star rating’s efficiency, which doubles energy consumption and operating costs. Proactive management and benchmarks and tracking toward improvement can ensure a building and its tenancies are on track to continue improving their performance, as noted in studies like the Warren Centre’s Low-Energy High-Rise report. Benchmarks and the metrics to measure performance, coupled with communication and action plans are essential basics to reducing operating costs through active management of the tenancy.
