GBCA recognises Arup as green leader in 2016

07 February 2017

Arup in Australasia worked on more Green Star certifications than any other consultancy in 2016, with a total of 11 for the year.

“Arup has worked on an impressive 82 Green Star projects, and the highly-experienced team has influenced the design and delivery of some of Australia’s most iconic green building projects. Arup's legacy this year includes state-of-the-art education facilities at the University of Melbourne, the restoration of Sydney landmark Shell House and community-scale projects around the country.”

– Romilly Madew, Chief Executive Officer of the Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA)

Amongst these projects is a portfolio of six developments we took through certification with Stockland Development Pty Ltd. An Australian first, all six went through certification at the same time in just six months.

The GBCA certified 401 Green Star projects in 2016, compared with 223 in 2015 – an 80 per cent increase in certifications.

“We have been privileged to work closely with the GBCA and Green Star to help influence sustainable building design in Australia over the last 13 years. We've helped to deliver a number of Green Star 'firsts' and we will continue to push the boundaries of what's possible in sustainable design."

– Tim Elgood, Sydney Sustainable Buildings Leader, Arup
