North Sydney Council – Future-proofing Apartments

Future-proofing Apartments in North Sydney

North Sydney’s Futureproofing Apartments program aims to improve sustainability while reducing the cost of living.

The focus is on the numerous energy-saving opportunities found in common areas. However, all residents will directly benefit when solar sharing and centralised hot water system upgrades are implemented.

Around 75% of local residents live in apartments in North Sydney, and often, owners don’t realise how much energy and money is being wasted in the hidden areas and equipment of buildings, so a report by specialists will clearly quantify that and make recommendations for the owner’s corporation to follow up on.

How it works

The program offers sustainability assessments and reports on the following apartment sizes:

  • 10 units or less
  • 20 units or less
  • 21 units or more
  • mixed residential and commercial buildings will also be considered

The program offers the following at no cost:

  • energy assessments performed by industry specialists
  • detailed reports which will clearly illustrate the financial case for upgrades
  • attendance at strata meetings, if requested to help communicate the benefits of building upgrades
  • workshops and information sessions for apartment residents.

How to apply

Applications for the Future-proofing Apartments program are open until funding is exhausted.

For more information on the program, visit North Sydney Council’s website.
