Novion Property Group and the Gandel Group’s Chadstone Shopping Centre Stage 40 development was recently awarded a 5 Star Green Star design rating by the Green Building Council of Australia.
The sustainability measures designed for the development by the consultant team of Simpson Kotzman, Probuild and the Buchan Group, address current thinking on sustainable technology and ensure the Centre’s adaptability and durability.
ESD practices were incorporated wherever possible to reduce the impact of building, operating and maintaining the development and will result in an expected 71% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions and a 65% reduction in potable water use. Extensive daylighting to the mall space will considerably improve indoor environmental quality.
This achievement builds on the standards set by the Buchan Group’s development of Chadstone Place which was the second shopping centre in Australia and first in Victoria to achieve a 5 Star green Star rating with the Green Building Council of Australia.
