As our built environment continues to grow, so does the need for healthy, resilient and positive fitouts inside our buildings for the benefit of the environment and the wellbeing of people. Now is the time to redefine what world class sustainability means for building fitouts.
The purpose of the consultation paper and survey is to describe the proposed vision for the new Green Star Fitouts rating tool, before we commence detailed development of the tool. We are seeking feedback on our proposed vision and the direction of the tool. This is your opportunity to provide feedback, suggestions and comments in this early phase, to help to ensure we provide a tool which continues to be valuable to industry and helps to drive sustainable fitouts across Australia.
Green Star Fitouts aims to exemplify a new approach to designing, buildings, deconstructing and reusing fitouts.
The most significant proposed change to the tool is the introduction of the ‘Circular’ category, which aims to ensure that Green Star Fitouts will lead the industry towards a circular economy. The new tool aims to demonstrate how great planning, design and construction can enable the creation of fitouts that can be reused after the end of life, to reduce waste and allow nature to regenerate.
