Building Futures

Building Futures is a free Council program to help strata buildings save thousands in energy and water costs, by providing support from start to finish.

Council are working with selected buildings to easily identify and implement cost-saving solutions to:

  • Reduce operating costs
  • Reduce common area energy use
  • Cut greenhouse gas emissions
  • Reduce water use
  • Improve waste management

All participating buildings will work towards a shared energy goal - reduced common property energy by 20%.

What does each building get?

  • Energy assessments
  • Costed upgrade recommendations
  • Waterfix program by Sydney Water for high water users
  • Implementation support
  • Training and networking opportunities
  • Recognition and promotion
  • Matched funding for upgrades
