Brisbane office is green champion

The Brisbane (Australia) office of the engineering firm Floth has won an international award from the World Green Building Council in recognition of its sustainable design and performance.

The office building, in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley, was crowned a champion of green building at the World GBC’s Asia Pacific Leadership in Green Building Awards for 2016 at a special event in Mumbai. Floth, which designed and occupies the building, was presented with the Leadership in Sustainable Design and Performance (Commercial) Award. The building, at 69 Robertson Street, was the first in Australia to achieve a ‘6-Star Green Star’.

The World GBC’s Leadership in Sustainable Design and Performance Award is presented to green building projects that set new benchmarks for sustainability. Winners are named across the sub-categories of residential, commercial and institutional buildings.
This building won the prestigious award for its ability to generate 53% fewer operational carbon emissions than a building built to code. A roof-mounted solar photovoltaic system offsets 28% of the building’s final operational energy.

Green building projects and companies were nominated for the biennial awards by the 15 Green Building Councils that make up the World GBC’s Asia Pacific regional network.
