Green rating for Goods Shed

02 Dec 2014

Green rating for Goods Shed Image

The Goods Shed South has received a 5 Green Star rating, making it one of the oldest heritage buildings in Australia to receive a Green Star rating.

Originally built in 1889, the building has undergone an 18-month renovation by Walker Corporation as part of its $2 billion Collins Square development.

The building incorporates a range of environmentally sustainable design initiatives including high-efficiency lighting and an active chilled beam cooling system to reduce energy use.

The building also incorporates recycled steel, sustainable timber, double-glazed glass, rainwater collection and cycle facilities.

“With a 5 Star Green Star rating for construction demonstrating ‘Australian excellence’, the Goods Shed South and the Lantern Building demonstrate that green features are not limited to new building, but with innovation and commitment can be achieved in heritage-listed buildings too,” CEO of the Green Building Council of Australia, Romilly Madew, said.

“We congratulate Walker Group for this outstanding achievement.”

Walker Corporation director of development and projects David Gallant said sustainability was important to the company and remained a fundamental part of all its projects.

“The restoration was planned and undertaken with the 5 Green Star requirements front of mind.”
