30 January 2012 – WSP Built Ecology has achieved its 200th Green Star with the award of the 500 Bourke St As-Built rating – a project which began in 2007 and is the Melbourne headquarters for the NAB.

The company has achieved a 100 per cent success rate of targeted ratings and even increased some ratings without increases to committed budgets, a testament to the fact that it uses Green Star as a benchmarking tool rather than a design tool, says director David Jarratt.

The company has employed its first staff member  to co-ordinate Green Star and LEED submissions.

“This service will be to assist coordinating our current Green Star submissions of which we have approximately 160 stars committed over the next two years,” Mr Jarratt said.
