SHAPE VIC receives Five Star Certification

19 August 2011

Earlier this week, the SHAPE Melbourne Office received its 5 Star Green Star Office Interiors v1.1 certification.

The office, located at 5 Queens Road, is an example of installing a very contemporary office design inside an older building.  The success in blending the sustainability and design features is confirmed by the office also receiving a NABERS Indoor Environmental Quality score of 4.5 and an occupant satisfaction score of 92%.

The design ethos for this project was “habitat for our people” and the office incorporates many features that improve the well being of its occupants - including lots of additional fresh air, low solvent materials and good access to daylight and break-out areas.

The office scored 70 Green Star points and did particularly well in the categories of Management, Energy, Transport, Water, Materials and Emissions.

The main lessons learnt were:
• Good documentation capture from subcontractors speeds up Green Star certification.
• The best results come from close collaboration between the tenant, builder, architect and services engineer.
