The CFMEU will incorporate Generation 2 ClearVuePV solar windows into the façade of its new Training and Wellness Centre in Carlton – making it the first facade project in Australia to specify ClearVue’s unique solar glazing technology from the outset.

The decision by the CFMEU marks the organisation’s commitment to reducing carbon emissions from the built environment.

Project architects Hayball  aim to receive a 5-Star GreenStar certification and a Gold WELL certification for the project with ClearVue’s solution an integral part of the submission.

Kapitol Group’s Project Manager on the CFMEU Training and Wellness Centre, Tom Stephens, explains the importance of engaging sustainable suppliers on Kapitol’s building projects: “One of our core company values is to ‘do no harm’, and engaging with suppliers like ClearVue means we can build more sustainable buildings that will minimise their environmental impact for decades to come.”

The ClearVuePV solar glazing is expected to be installed around April 2024.
