How to design end of trip facilities with sustainability in mind

End of trip facilities are becoming an important part of modern office design, but CSM know that sustainability must go hand in hand with this development.

Co-owned by Mirvac Group, 101 Miller St North Sydney needed an upgrade and like so many office projects today, end of trip facilities were an essential inclusion for the build. Ideas of sustainable design were key drivers for the building, taking a holistic approach to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.

This iconic building now represents an award-winning retro-green design, capable of functioning for years to come while avoiding expensive excessive energy inputs or substantial demolition waste generation. 

The design, management and construction of 101 Miller Street’s new End of Trip amenities were entrusted to Enfold. The result is an outstanding contemporary facility for the end users of the building, with storage for over 170 bicycles, refurbished bathrooms, showers and nearby staff lockers – supplied by CSM Office Furniture Solutions and includes METRA locking systems, a stylish and secure end of use service for employees.

Through touchscreen technology, employees can access the three areas of bike rack, and male and female changing areas, while the card readers have been locked to the individual’s own access card to ensure security. Locker reservations last throughout the day but automatically expire overnight, allowing for varied use reflecting the hot desk design of so many modern workplaces. CSM have always championed sustainability in their locker and design work. In acknowledgement of CSM complying with the Voluntary Environmental Declaration Standard for Furniture and Fittings, GECA has awarded CSM with the Good Environmental Choice Label.

This international best practice environmental declaration means that CSM products deliver better environmental outcomes – throughout their entire life cycle. This sets CSM apart as an established innovator in environmental standards.

”Following investigation and visits to the various end of trip facilities it became obvious that the simple convenience of using one building access card was not generally available,” says Ray Marsh of Mirvac” As simple as it sounds, one access card for all available building services from the car park, building entries, lifts and available for tenancies was a must.

“Tenants have the ability to reduce the number of tenancy and building services cards from three to one. CSM and METRA Australia listened to what we believed to be achievable and provided a system capable of providing exactly what we wanted to achieve. “
