Located across Bicentennial Park, Botania apartments is one of Sydney’s latest urban sanctuaries. The fifth project completed together with Meriton, this multi-story offers a panoramic view from the parklands to the cityscapes.
Designed to be energy efficient and sustainable, its environmental initiatives had reduced energy consumption down to 20%. A big part of those initiatives included Safetyline Jalousie louvre windows.
Safetyline Jalousie were contracted to provide the building units with natural ventilation and enable natural lighting wherever possible. Louvre windows were an attractive choice offering up to 87% free-flowing air, hugely reducing the reliance on mechanical ventilation systems. All glass louvre windows and doors also had solar tints applied to filter heat variants in the summer months.
Sound pollution was a major concern as well. As a residential building that is located within close proximity to the Olympic Park rail line, sporting stadiums and various entertainment venues, acoustics needed to be taken into account during the specification process. With an impressive acoustic rating up to 35Rw, Safetyline Jalousie louvre windows were able to contribute to the comfortable living environment for the building’s residents for both temperature and sound control.
Fall prevention requirements and balustrade safeguards were also implemented as a standard across all units.
Safetyline Jalousie participates in a series of industry networking events and trade shows across Australia each year.
