Sustainability in GPT
The $200 million Wollongong Central expansion has been recognised as one of Australia’s most sustainable retail developments after being awarded the country’s first 5 Star Green Star ‘As-Built’ rating for a shopping centre.
The rating represents ‘Australian excellence’ in sustainable construction, according to the Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA). The GBCA assessed a range of factors in awarding the rating, which included the management of the centre, indoor air quality, energy, transport, water, materials, land use and ecology, emissions and innovation.
One key element in the Wollongong Central development that was recognised was its innovative passive design which reduced energy use. Examples of this include the use of a large skylight to reduce the need for artificial lighting and the large food court façade awning which can be opened or closed automatically according to the weather conditions.
