19 September 2012 — Stockland’s Western Australian headquarters at 2 Victoria Avenue, Perth has become the first building in the state to earn a trio of Green Star ratings from the Green Building Council of Australia.

The office space, where Stockland occupies the ground floor, has just been awarded a 5 Star Green Star – Interiors v1.1 rating for its interior fit-out. It adds to the 6 Star Green Star – Office Design v2 rating for the overall building in 2009, developed by Stockland, and the 5 Star Green Star – Office As Built v2 rating earned in March this year.

Stockland Residential Western Australia general manager Col Dutton said the ratings set the benchmark for future office developments in the area of sustainability.

He described the building as a “flagship green building” for Perth.

Stockland’s office fitout includes energy efficient, intelligent lighting control systems with motion sensors, sub-metering for tenancy lighting and power consumption monitoring, office furniture that has reduced environmental impact, low-VOC paints and carpets, water-efficient plumbing fixtures and a dedicated area for waste recycling.

Completed in 2009, the 7200 square metre building also has sustainable design elements including an automatic louvre system on the western façade which adjusts to solar orientation, a greywater treatment system, waterless urinals and a highly efficient chilled beam air conditioning system.

Stockland’s environmental sustainability manager Greg Johnson said Victoria Avenue was only building to achieve a Green Star – As Built rating in WA.

Stockland has also received recognition under the NABERS scoring 5 Star energy ratings for the base building and tenancy.

The building’s managing agent is CB Richard Ellis and it has a net lettable area of 7671 square metres. Major tenants are Shell and Stockland.

GBCA chief executive Romilly Madew said the Victoria Avenue offices had set a new benchmark for sustainable design, construction and interiors.
