Baulderstone cements position as sustainable building leader.
Baulderstone has reinforced its reputation as an industry leader in Environmentally Sustainable Development with a string of building successes.
Baulderstone's $181m development at 121 Marcus Clarke Street, Canberra, has secured a 5 Star Green Star - Office Design v2 rating, and a 4.5 star NABERS (National Australian Built Environment Rating System) design rating.
The project is the first office building being constructed at the ANU Exchange. It features 91% efficient floor plates, solar protection, low energy design strategies and the advantage of abundant natural light from the building's predominantly uninterrupted aspect.
In a further boost for Baulderstone's sustainable building reputation, its $180m Freshwater Place Commercial Tower development on Southbank Boulevard, Melbourne, has achieved a 4.5 NABERS rating.
The 38-level, 96,000m2 premium office space features extensive Environmentally Sustainable Development design initiatives including use of recycled content in steel and concrete, and reduced greenhouse emissions.
Baulderstone has also commenced work on Wollongong University's $31.2 m iC Enterprise 1, a commercial office building which is designed to achieve a 4.5 star NABERS rating. The building is part of the $300m Innovation Campus, an Australian-first hub for innovative research in areas such as science, business, media, health and technology.
Meanwhile, Baulderstone's 5 Star Green Star rated Triniti Business Campus, in North Ryde, NSW, was named best business industrial park at the annual Property Council of Australia Rider Levett Bucknall Innovation and Excellence Awards event, held in June.
'These projects demonstrate Baulderstone's commitment to "Creating what matters" in a sustainable way,' Rick Turchini, Baulderstone's Managing Director, said.
Baulderstone has been 'Creating what matters' in Australian building and infrastructure for its clients and the community for over 80 years. It is one of the largest building and engineering companies in Australia, with over 1,400 people across the country, and an annual turnover in excess of $2 billion.
