In 2007 the Meridian Energy head office specific design façade solution also known as Site 7 or The Kumototo Building, was completed by Thermosash Commercial.
Included in the building envelope:
- high performance transparent twin skin façade - the anodised aluminium and glass double skin curtainwall creates a 400mm cavity that captures solar gains and limits heat loss
- unitised panel wall solutions
- automatic window and louvre actuators - providing passive heating and cooling of the building
- Thermosash also provided, skylights, shopfront and integrated timber louvres to this project.
This building has been a flagship for sustainable architecture incorporating specific design façade solutions providing New Zealand with its first 5 Green Star Design and Build. The Meridian Building in Wellington continues to prove itself through the integration of smart design and the clever use of specific design façade technology.
