Quins Building officially opened Share this article

South Australian Premier, The Hon. Jay Weatherhill MP has officially opened the redevelopment of the historic Port Adelaide Building. The building which will house the National Union of Workers and LUCRF Super is aiming to be Australia’s first Carbon negative building.

Cundall’s Nick Stokoe attended the event, where he assisted with a technical tour which included presenting the Fuel Cell installation to the SA Premier. 

“Cundall developed a strategy from the ground up to re-life this existing heritage building, the result being a world leading example in sustainable office space with less than zero greenhouse gas emissions in operation” Says Nick “It was a great to see the project occupied and explain to the SA Premier and some of its new occupants the technology that has made this happen”

The Quins Redevelopment utilises highly efficient ceramic fuel cells connected in series to generate green electricity on site. The fuel cell system is supplemented by a 22kW solar photovoltaic array which provides additional green energy to the extent that the emissions savings associated with the solar PV array offsets the emissions attributed to the natural gas consumed by the fuel cells. When the building’s energy demand is less than that provided by the fuel cells and solar PV array combined, the excess energy is fed back into the grid.
