Green Building Council of Australia has 176 members and recently developed environmental rating tool


National environmental ratings tools developed: Ten other
projects would be announced in the coming months, Ms Atkinson said. “We
have now developed four national comprehensive environmental rating
tools for office buildings under the Green Star system, for new
building design, existing building refurbishments and tenant fit-outs,
as well as a tool that rates existing buildings and their management
efficiency (to be released in early 2006).”

Other standards: Having finalised a suite of rating tools for
commercial offices, she said, work was under way on other building
classes, including:

• Green Star – Convention design.

• Green Star – Retail design and refurbishment.

• Green Star – Health construction.

• Green Star – Education construction.

The Council has appointed Craig Heaton to chairman at the annual meeting of the three-year group. Mr Heaton,
director of project management at ING Real Estate Development, succeeds
Australand’s managing director, Brendan Crotty, reported The Australian Financial Review (1/12/2005, p.52).

Mr Heaton, overseeing the
$1 billion Waterfront City development at Melbourne Docklands, said he
would focus on working with government and industry bodies “to ensure a
co-ordinated approach that will create incentives and remove barriers
to build green”.
