Anatomy of One Central Park’s award-winning green infrastructure

Since its completion, One Central Park has become a bit of a Sydney icon for a few reasons. One of the more obvious ones is that it’s covered head to toe in greenery.

The green walls covering the two towers are just part of the award-winning project’s sustainability profile. The $2 billion, 5.8 hectare precinct included $100 million earmarked for investment in green technology, including its own tri-generation plant, a recycled water network and onsite renewable energy.

One Central Park, Sydney, has one of the 'greenest' buildings in the world.

The gardens use a remote-controlled dripper irrigation system and a special mesh-covered felt to anchor the plants to the scaffolds. The gardens are maintained by Junglefy, which specialises in green walls.

Another eye-catching feature of the development is the cantilevered heliostat, which serves a couple of functions.
