Capital Square Tower 1 in Perth has attained a 6 star “As Built” rating from the Green Building Council Australia (GBCA). The 6 star “As Built” certification was certified in the first round of application.
When AAIG Nomines PTY LTD (as Trustee of AAIG Trust) purchased the old Emu Brewery site, they had ambitious goals of creating a mixed-use precinct, one that would set new standards for occupant experience and sustainability.
NDY (Norman Disney & Young) were originally engaged to deliver a 5 star Green Star certification for the base building, but the sustainability initiatives that were implemented meant the design exceeded this expectation and was awarded “world leadership in sustainable design” by the GBCA.
“The GBCA were assured of the sustainability credentials of the project at the outset of the audit and application process, which speaks to the high quality of the submission documentation, both from NDY’s Environmental Sustainable Design team, and the larger project team including Multiplex and Cox Architecture,” says NDY sustainability leader Leigh Gibb.
“The documentation also included a whole of lifecycle assessment of the entire building that demonstrated the benefits of specific design elements, as well as determining any potential negative environmental impacts in the short-, medium- and long-term of the building’s lifecycle.”
