Sustainable workspaces of the future

There has never been a more exciting time to work with the teams at the forefront of creating healthy buildings and healthy communities. Buildcorp’s commitment to continual learning has enabled us to keep abreast of sustainability innovations, and we continue to train our teams to help our clients achieve green project goals. Many of our people are Green Star Accredited Associates or Professionals who all operate by our Environmental Management Systems which incorporate global best practice guidelines: ISO 14001:2004.

Internally, this commitment has enabled us to ‘walk the talk’ with our own sustainable workspaces. In recognition of this, in 2012 we were awarded ‘CitySwitch Green Office Signatory of the Year’ for achieving a 4.5 Star NABERS Tenancy Energy Rating in our Sydney office.  Buildcorp also became the first property business to be awarded ‘Silver Partner’ recognition through the Sustainability Advantage program.

Externally, Buildcorp has grown our strong experience in successful Green Star, NABERS and WELL accredited projects, and we are proud to have worked with some of the industry’s leading sustainability innovators to achieve ‘firsts’ in a number of pioneering projects, including:
  • Darling Island 6: the first 6 Star Green Star Commercial Building in NSW. The six storey new build premises also achieved a 40% improvement on the ABGR 5 star rating. The smart building has one of the smallest environmental footprints of any premium grade commercial office building.
  • GPT workspace, MLC Centre (Levels 50-52): the first 6 Star Green Star Fit-out Rating in a building not undergoing an upgrade. This workplace was created in 2011 and also achieved a 5 Star NABERS Energy Tenancy rating.
  • Australia Post (Strawberry Hills) building renewal: this large scale refurbishment and integrated fit-out of a key Australia Post asset was the first project to achieve all three Green Star ratings (5 Star Green Star Design, As Built and Interiors) as well as 5 star NABERS Energy Tenancy and 5 Star NABERS Base Building Rating.
  • International media company: located in the 6 Star Green Star rated 1 Bligh Street building, this fit-out was designed and built to achieve a Platinum LEED rating (a US Green Building Council initiative), which at the time was the highest LEED rating achieved in Australia.

As workspaces now also look to the new WELL Building Standards®, design is focusing on the impact of buildings on people’s health and wellbeing.  Buildcorp recently completed a WELL inspired workspace for Macquarie Bank at Sydney’s 1 Martin Place, which transformed seven floors into a new collaboration and innovation hub for clients and teams.
