Finalist in the 2014 Clean Energy Council’s Solar Design and Installation Award

The Sustainable Buildings Research Centre (SBRC)

Located at the aptly named Innovation Campus –  Wollongong University. The SBRC has been established to provide a hub for Academia to create, develop, and implement cutting edge sustainable building concepts and the building is on its way towards a 6 Star Green Star rating.

Logically, the centre chose to install a solar system, but true to their innovation mandate it’s no ordinary system.

The system was installed by MGA Solar in conjunction with Energy Matters, one of Australia’s largest solar company’s. The projects provided many technical challenges in design, installation and material restrictions, pushing the boundaries of commercial system design. The installation included roof and facade mountings and we are hugely proud to have been involved.

The system was a finalist in the 2014 Clean Energy Council’s Solar Design and Installation award, testament to it’s innovative nature.
