Project Monitoring With Continued Due Diligence

With the complexity and size of current new developments as well as their varying funding & delivery arrangements, our National Building Consulting team is undertaking an increasing number of Project Monitoring commissions for a variety of clients.

We are seeing a current trend of acquisitions of development property from international investors partnering with local developers – and more lately, from local property companies and superannuation funds. This is coupled with major corporates wanting anchor tenancies in new developments.

Commercial Building Disclosure (CBD)

Commercial Building Disclosure (CBD) is a national program designed to improve the energy efficiency of Australia’s large office buildings.

The disclosure requirements under the CBD program will commence on 1 November 2010.

The CBD program will ensure that credible and meaningful energy efficiency information is available to prospective purchasers and lessees of large commercial office space. Owners and lessors of commercial office space with a net lettable area of 2,000m² or more will be required to disclose energy efficiency information to prospective purchasers and tenants when the space is to be sold, leased or subleased.

During this period, a valid National Australian Built Environment Rating System (NABERS) Energy base or whole building rating, must be disclosed. After the transition period, a full Building Energy Efficiency Certificate (BEEC) is required to be disclosed.
