1 Bligh Street Sydney Green Wall
Proctor Group Australia
1 Bligh Street, Sydney CBD
ProctorWrap Black Label
Winner of the DEXUS/City of Sydney design competition Architectus, in association with Ingenhoven Architects (Germany), has created a highly sustainable office tower that has achieved 6 Star Green Star Office Design V2 Certified Rating from the Green Building Council of Australia.
Every aspect of the 27 level tower from the double-skin façade to the full-height glass atrium is designed to optimize sustainability. Sustainable features include onsite blackwater recycling, rainwater recycling, tri-generation and solar thermal collection to reduce peak and annual energy consumption; a large, full height naturally ventilated internal atrium and underfloor heating.
The beautifully lush green vertical garden is much more than a decorative backdrop. Integrated into the architectural form, this 377m² living wall drastically reduces reflective light and heat to diminish the “heat island effect” plus helps reduce building air conditioning energy costs.
The ProctorWrap Black Label breathable construction membrane has been used behind this vertical garden to help protect the building fabric from moisture ingress.
The unique two layer spun bonded polyester membrane allows for the controlled escape of water vapour whilst providing a high level water holdout.
Developed as a vapour permeable underlay for use under solar panels and in open joint rain screen applications -ProctorWrap Black Label will prevent damaging interstitial condensation forming and associated problems such as mould, timber rot, corrosion and loss of thermal resistance.
ProctorWrap Black Label also offers excellent UV stability, plus protection against wind driven rain, snow and dust for the lifetime of the building.
