CETA Systems Integrator, VRT Systems, has been selected by Lend Lease to deliver an integrated WAGES (Water Air Gas Electricity and Steam) Metering System for the new Barangaroo R8 & R9 residential blocks.

The $6 Billion Barangaroo projects is one of the most ambitious and significant waterfront redevelopments anywhere in the world. The 22 hectare site is located on the western edge of Sydney CBD on what was previously a vacant former container wharf. The Barangaroo site will be transformed over the next decade into a thriving public, residential and commercial precinct with a waterfront promenade running the length of the site. 

The first residential towers, R8 and R9, represent a combined investment value of $100 Million and will be a part of Australia’s first large scale carbon neutral community. CETA along with VRT Systems will be assisting Lend Lease in pioneering a new era in sustainability and setting new benchmarks for others to follow.


CETA WAGES Hubs will be used throughout the building for managing the collection and local storage of all forms of metering data, including;

  • Electrical Energy
  • Thermal Energy
  • Water
  • Gas


The WAGES Hubs provide an interface to the PecStar iEMS which is used as the base building Energy Monitoring System (EMS) by the Facilities Manager.

The WAGES Hubs will also provide data connectors to the Switch Smart Hub to enable cloud based access for tenants to view their individual consumption data on their chosen mobile device (in what has become known as the BYOD approach) and to the billing authority for the consumption of thermal energy and recycled water.

VRT will be responsible for all aspects of supply, integration and commissioning of the entire WAGES system. Lend Lease is leading the market in the adoption of this new standard approach (integrated design plus integrated delivery) to ensure effective delivery of such complex systems in high end residential buildings. CETA has supplied the Electrical Energy, Thermal Energy, Water and Gas meters to VRT for the project. 

CETA congratulates VRT Systems on their achievement and looks forward to working with them to achieve the same success for the subsequent Barangaroo projects.
