Green Star is the rating system used most commonly during design to ensure that the building will be highly energy efficient. Most recently it incorporates a performance rating for the building (As-Built ratings). The higher the rating the greater the perceived value of the building.
Our Green Star services range from providing strategic advice and peer review through to full involvement in a project including initial concept, design and construction, taking responsibility of achieving both Design and As-Built ratings.
Viridis clients have achieved optimal ratings in their buildings, increasing the value of their assets to better than anticipated, and of course minimising costs and environmental impacts. We offer an unparalleled level of experience in achieving the highest Green Star ratings, covering a wide range of building types (e.g. offices, Education facilities etc), with many certified projects achieving 6 stars.
Viridis has provided strategic advice on many other projects, including independent peer reviews of Green Star submissions, and we have been involved in the development of the Green Star ratings tools since they were first launched. Our staff have contributed to the development of nearly all the different Green Star tools, and taken a lead role as category managers for the development of the Education tool, and Green Star training courses for the Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA), training several thousand industry professionals.
