You want a Green Star rating and building sustainability consultancy if you are designing a building (home or commercial) for long-term environmental sustainability, occupant comfort and energy savings.
Our building sustainability consultancy is also the right service choice if you want to implement innovative, best-practice design and building materials that deliver top-level heating and cooling for temperature control.
Green Star ratings was launched by the Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA) in 2003 and is the only nationally recognised and voluntary system used to rate the environmental sustainability of buildings.
Floyd Energy® has staff accredited in Green Star ratings to advice you on how to get a Green Star rating for your build, along with industry leading professionals with decades of building sustainability experience for large scope consultancy projects.
What’s the value of having a Green Star rating on your building?
It is estimated by GBCA that green star buildings provide up to 26% less energy consumption than a typical commercial building and up to 33% less greenhouse gas emissions.
There is also growing independent and third party research indicating green buildings increase occupancy well-being, health, happiness and productivity.
The marketability of a Green Star building is also on the rise, as is the awareness of the benefits for occupants. This includes everything from leading organisations wanting work spaces that show care of the environment and staff well-being; to health and care facilities wanting to look after their clients beyond human care; through to homeowners and tenants wanting homes that provide comfort throughout the year with low cost of living.
