HASSELL sponsors Green Star - Interiors
International design firm, HASSELL, has this week become the first Bronze Sponsor of the Green Star - Interiors PILOT rating tool. A founding member of the GBCA and long-term supporter of the green building movement, HASSELL has contributed to the development of the Green Star – Interiors PILOT rating tool through involvement in the Green Star Interiors Technical Working Group (TWG) and intend to register their Sydney studio as a Green Star – Interiors PILOT project.
“Over the past 10 years, HASSELL has been a strong supporter of the Green Building Council of Australia and the Green Star rating tools. Our sponsorship and involvement in the development of the new Green Star - Interiors rating tool provides a great opportunity to help shape the future of sustainability, not just for commercial workplaces but for a wide range of other interior project types,” says Brett Pollard, Head of Knowledge and Sustainability at HASSELL.
“Our Sydney studio is moving early next year and we want our new home to be an exemplar of the latest thinking in workplace design, as well as sustainability. Being involved in piloting the new rating tool will allow us to really get to grips with the new tool and apply the lessons learnt to our clients’ projects as well as our own new workplace,” Pollard concludes.
“It’s great to have the support of HASSELL and other members of our industry who are at the forefront of interior fitout delivery. Ensuring that fitouts are sustainable, healthy and productive is a top consideration for HASSELL in the work that they do every day and we are looking forward to working with the HASSELL team to test Green Star – Interiors credits,” says Green Star Development Manager, Jorge Chapa.
Green Star – Interiors is now available as a PILOT rating tool, and the GBCA is inviting expressions of interest from projects across Australia for PILOT phase involvement.
