Opportunity to test Green Star - Performance
The Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA) is looking for facility managers and building services engineers to participate in beta testing of the Green Star - Performance draft rating tool.
Green Star - Performance, the GBCA’s new rating tool for the operational performance of existing buildings, is now entering the final phase before its launch later this year.
The Green Star - Performance rating tool has been developed for use across a wide range of building types – from hospitals to hotels, and from shopping centres to schools. Buildings do not need to have a Green Star Design or As Built rating to achieve a Green Star - Performance rating.
Green Star - Performance will help existing building owners, operators and occupants to:
- Gain an understanding of their building’s overall operational performance.
- Gain a third-party certified rating that demonstrates their building is performing to its full potential.
- Identify clear pathways for sustainable improvement that will lower operating costs and provide better indoor environments for building users.
To find out how you can get involved in beta testing, please contact Robert Milagre, Acting Green Star Development Manager at robert.milagre [at] gbca.org.au .
