- Melbourne, Australia
Located in the center of Melbourne's bustling CBD, the Australian Institute of Architects (AIA) building known as 41X was developed to accommodate the AIA headquarters.
The stunning 22 story tower is the first commercial office building in Melbourne to target carbon neutrality over its planned 30 year lifespan, and the first building in Australia to abide to a “Sustainability Charter”. This charter mandates the use of 100 percent green power, and minimum commitments to carbon offsetting through the Australian Carbon Trust.
These green credentials are further reinforced through 41X achieving a Five Star Australian Excellence Green Star rating.
This environmental responsibility was achieved jointly through an eco-friendly design, and the integration of countless HDL KNX DALI gateways, relay modules, motion sensors, and switches.
Used to control the entirety of the building’s lighting system, the HDL KNX system ensures that lighting is only used only when absolutely necessary. To control the lighting intensity and further increase system efficiency, ambient light sensors control dimming levels to create an optimized visual experience.
