Quintessential Equity developed the award-winning 1 Malop Street project as an exemplar of energy efficient design. Now home to WorkSafe Victoria, the development merges an original Dalgety & Co building with landmark office space.  

Sustainability initiatives include a highly efficient façade system, air leakage testing, highly efficient lighting systems and controls, and 90 kW of rooftop solar to deliver 15 per cent of the base building energy. The building received Platinum Core and Shell Certification.
