Welcome to our Barangaroo South retailers’ space. 

This page comprises all the information about our utilities infrastructure at Barangaroo, known as ‘Green Utilities’, and how we indirectly service your retail space.

As you know, Barangaroo is redefining Sydney. Upon completion, Australia’s first carbon-neutral community will bring 2,000 locals, 23,000 office workers and over 30,000 visitors together each year to work, socialise, live and shop at the edge of the magnificent Sydney Harbour.

What’s behind the Barangaroo South Green Utilities?

Green Utilities refer collectively to the three service companies which operate the Barangaroo South precinct infrastructure utilities called Lendlease Recycled Water, Lendlease Chilled Water and the Lendlease Embedded Network.

Barangaroo South precinct infrastructure utilities include a district cooling plant, a recycled water plant, solar power generation, and an embedded electricity network.

Living Utilities is the parent company that owns and manages the Green Utilities to assist the precinct to achieve its sustainability targets.

An important thing to note is that, while we maintain oversight over the Green Utilities (i.e the precinct infrastructure utilities), we do not provide retail services directly to your businesses (Internet, gas, potable water).

As a retailer, you still have to make your own arrangements with utility retail service providers to get connected to those services.
At barangaroo south, Did you know?

Potable Water
Potable water at Barangaroo South is provided by Sydney Water. 

Your potable water bills are managed by Sydney Water directly.

Please contact Sydney Water to set up your account.
Recycled Water
Barangaroo South aims to be a water positive precinct, which means it can produce more recycled water than the potable water it consumes.

A key part of this strategy involves an onsite blackwater treatment plant to recycle water and sewage for things such as toilet flushing, irrigation and wash-down. 

This not only helps save precious drinking water, it is also cheaper than using potable water. 

Lendlease Recycled Water bills the base building for these services, so you do not need to connect your businesses individually. 
The wastewater and trade waste services are managed by Lendlease Recycled Water.

These services are billed to Lendlease Property Management Australia and usually on-charged to retailers so you do not need to connect your business individually.  
Barangaroo South has its own private open embedded network, one of the first in Australia, and Lendlease Embedded Network provides the electrical network services (‘poles and wires’) for the precinct. 

Once you have selected your electricity retailer of choice, they use this infrastructure to supply the electricity that your business uses. 
Air Conditioning - Cooling
The air conditioning - cooling in your retail space is provided centrally through the district cooling plant located in the basement of the precinct. 

This is one of the sustainable systems put in place to ensure the water positive impact of the Barangaroo South precinct.

The cooling mechanism is easy, the plant pumps water from the harbour to take heat from the buildings using a method called heat rejection. Similar systems can also be found at the Sydney Opera House and the Powerhouse Museum. 

This service is billed to Lendlease Property Management Australia and usually on-charged to retailers so you do not need to connect your business individually.
