Client: Leighton Contractors

Completion Date: May 2010

Project Description:

The Leighton HQ Fitout project is an interior fitout of 4 levels of the new 7 storey Leighton HQ commercial and retail building constructed in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley.  The Leighton HQ Fitout is registered for a Green Star – Office Interiors v1.1 rating and is targeting a 5 Star Green Star rating.  The project is also targeting a 4.5 Star NABERS Energy rating.

The Leighton HQ building has been awarded a 6 Star Green Star – Office Design v2 Certified Rating from the Green Building Council of Australia, representing ‘World Leadership’ in environmentally sustainable design.

Viridis Roles & Responsibilities:

Viridis E3 was appointed by Leighton Contractors to prepare the Green Star submission for the Interiors Rating.  However the scope of Viridis’ work has not been limited to the Green Star submission.  Viridis run sustainability workshops for key project team members and developed credit action lists to minimise the risk of credits not being achieved.  Viridis have also assisted the builder to adapt procedures for the base building Green Star rating to include the fitout requirements.

Monthly site visits have been undertaken by the Viridis team to ensure effective progress on the Interiors submission.  The NABERS Energy report and the Tenant Users’ Guide will be provided by the Viridis project team.  Viridis E3 have also developed a project specific Green Star Pathway allowing the project team to identify the optimal approach to achieving the desired Green Star rating.
