A Refreshed Approach to Water Harvesting
Dec 10, 2020
QIC’s Global Real Estate team are currently implementing a project for the QIC Office Fund and QIC Government Office Portfolio assets at 111 George St and 33 Charlotte Street (Brisbane, Queensland) to utilise two large rainwater harvesting tanks.

With a combined capacity of 78,000 litres, the tanks capture water from the assets’ rooftops as well as condensate from the air handling units located in the buildings.

This water will be re-used to top up the buildings’ cooling towers, significantly reducing water consumption to deliver significant environmental benefits and cost savings. The tanks are also extremely space-efficient, having been designed to fit within a designated area of the office towers’ underground car parking facilities, minimising impacts on tenant and building operational requirements.
