Santos Offices

Solar Shading Commercial Zest®

The Santos building is a 13 level commercial office in Adelaide's CBD Flinders Link development. Arcadia was engaged in the design & supply of the electrically operated solar shade system which was built into the façade from 4th to 13th floor of the building. The sunshade system is integrated with the BMS and has custom settings to respond to the ranging sun patterns throughout the day and the seasons. The Zest® elliptical profile was selected by designers as it provides excellent spanning capacity to provide less interruption to views and can meet the engineering load requirements for high-rise projects like this.

The external Solar shading system was integral to the achievement of 5 Star "As Built" GBCA rating. This project also achieved a 5 Star ABGR energy rating.
