We are thrilled to receive the 5-star As Built rating from the Green Building Council of Australia, which makes GE HQ Kane’s first construction project to receive a Green star AS-BUILT rating.
In collaboration with our Green Star Accredited Professionals (Umow Lai), the design team worked hard throughout the design phase to incorporate the requirements of the targeted Green star credit criteria into the project.
Many factors contributed to achieving the Green Star rating with building elements such as an architectural louvered wing to provide passive solar protection to the facade, a façade/glazing selection enabling the mechanical system to operate at optimum performance, the installation of LED lighting, a lighting control system with daylight harvesting functionality, and a mechanical system which provides 150% increase in outside air provision to the building to counteract the build- up of indoor pollutants.
