Newcastle’s first Green Star-rated office

NIB Newcastle.

THE NIB building in Newcastle recently gained a four star Green Star – Office Interiors v1.1 rating from the Green Building Council of Australia.

NIB’s Green Star Interiors rating comes after the base building gained a four star Green Star Office As Built rating in 2010. The base building was designed to best practice environmental standards, with natural ventilation and natural light, energy-efficient heating, cooling and lighting, water-wise fixtures, fittings and landscape irrigation, and materials which were selected for their environmental performance.

Green Star evaluates the environmental design and construction of buildings and interior fitouts. More than 330 building projects around Australia have achieved Green Star ratings, including offices, schools, hospitals, shopping centres, industrial facilities and multi-unit residential dwellings.
