Case study


Organisations with large property portfolios supporting a sizeable workforce use a lot of energy, particularly in lights, heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC). 

With ESP’s sophisticated monitoring system and analytical tools in place across all seven buildings in Auckland’s VXV Precinct, tenants have saved nearly $2 million in operating costs since 2014, avoided 1,300 tonnes of carbon emissions, and seen a dramatic improvement in the operating performance of their buildings. These energy savings also won previous owners Goodman Property Trust the Energy and Emissions Reduction Project of the Year at the 2018 EECA awards and they are on track to achieve a NABERSNZ rating of at least 4.5 stars, and an energy reduction of 40%, once all initiatives are complete.

A custom database developed by ESP for this project, and ESP’s robust, proven capability to track, manage and reduce energy use has provided Goodman, and current owner Blackstone, with additional benefits such as improved air quality and thermal comfort of the offices and increased staff wellbeing and staff investment in other sustainability initiatives.
