Building

The ARC leases office space at 11 Lancaster Place Canberra Airport, Canberra. Canberra Airport Business Park houses one of the largest tri-generation plants in Australia. Tri-generation is a process wherein natural gas is used as the single input source of energy to generate electricity. Excess energy that would have been lost during the production of electricity is used to heat the buildings in winter and cool them in summer.

In addition to producing three forms of energy, tri-generation provides efficiencies of 90 per cent. This far surpasses the Commonwealth Green Lease Requirement of 4.5 Star NABERS (The National Australian Building Environment Rating System). It also equates to less than half the carbon dioxide emissions of a 5 Star NABERS building.
