Cundall has provided ESD consultancy services for the refurbishment and extension of The Star (formerly Star City Casino and Hotel).  Works included on enhanced gaming areas, refurbishment and extension of the retail arcade and the upgrade of the 7,800m² event centre.  The new retail space includes a fashion precinct, two feature restaurants overlooking Sydney Harbour and an upmarket food court and an international standard day spa.

Ambitious targets for the reduction of energy, water and waste were set with initiatives for the casino including high performance facades, harvesting rainwater and naturally ventilated spaces.

The new casino is oriented to maximise the stunning waterfront outlook and an impressive street level façade, made from 147 flags of clear low-iron glass with stainless steel and operable windows.  Cundall provided computer modelling of this innovative façade design which provides naturally ventilated spaces for gaming, coupled with views of the Sydney Harbour.
