1200 Buildings Melbourne Retrofit Survey 2013

Report published by the City of Melbourne reveals a transformation is taking place in Melbourne’s commercial building stock

9 Dec 2013

A report released by the City of Melbourne last night reveals a transformation is taking place in Melbourne’s commercial building stock.

The survey consisted of 589 phone interviews with building owners and their representatives and measured the number of retrofits, types of upgrades, attitudes to perceived barriers to retrofitting and awareness of the City of Melbourne’s 1200 Buildings Program.

Key Findings included:

  • Since 2008, 25 per cent of the 589 buildings surveyed have either already undergone or are currently undergoing a retrofit.
  • 16 per cent of building owners and representatives surveyed planned to undertake a retrofit within the next five years.
  • Lighting upgrades were the most common retrofit activity, followed by installing or upgrading building management systems, metering and upgrading chillers and boilers.
  • Key motivations included replacing broken assets, minimising energy consumption, attracting or retaining tenants and extending the life of assets.
