Electric instantaneous water heaters from Stiebel Eltron Australia were selected by the builder, Forrester Properties for The Capitol Apartments, a modern residential development in Brisbane, Queensland.
Located in the heart of Brisbane’s cultural district, a short distance from the cosmopolitan West End, The Capitol Apartments was completed in 2013. Based on an energy efficient and water-saving hydraulic design, the residential building features a DEL instantaneous water heater in each apartment as part of a decentralised hot water system.

Stiebel instantaneous water heaters also supply endless hot water to a gymnasium, restaurant and day spa also located in the building.
Ninety DEL 18 instantaneous water heaters were installed in the apartments.
