New Green Star Interiors pilot rating tool supported by HASSELL
HASSELL has designed over 1,000,000 square metres of projects certified or registered under the Green Star and LEED sustainable building rating tools, including the 6 Star Green Star rated ANZ Centre and the LEED Platinum rated Google office in Mumbai.
As such, it was only natural that the practice would support and help pilot the new Green Star – Interiors pilot rating tool launched by the Green Building Council of Australia this month.
"Over the past 10 years, HASSELL has been a strong supporter of the Green Building Council of Australia and the Green Star rating tools. Our sponsorship and involvement in the development of the new Green Star - Interiors pilot rating tool provides a great opportunity to help shape the future of sustainability, not just for commercial workplaces but for a wide range of other interior project types," said Brett Pollard, Head of Knowledge and Sustainability at HASSELL.
"Our Sydney studio is moving early next year and we want our new home to be an exemplar of the latest thinking in workplace design, as well as sustainability. Being involved in piloting the new rating tool will allow us to really get to grips with the new tool and apply the lessons learnt to our clients' projects as well as our own new workplace," said Brett.
The new Green Star Interiors pilot rating tool, unlike the previous version, is able to rate all types of interiors projects including hotels, schools, universities, hospitals as well as offices. Further information about the new Interiors rating tool is available here
