Congratulations to Floth Sustainable Building Services on achieving both the Green Building Council of Australia’s (GBCA) Green Star – Design & As Built v1.1 certified rating and the Australian Sustainable Built Environment Council’s (ASBEC) zero carbon building standard for its new head office in Fortitude Valley, Brisbane.

The new building includes a daylight-controlled direct-indirect LED lighting system, and variable air volume systems that are demand controlled in response to zoned carbon dioxide sensors. The office also features green trellis walls with drought tolerant climbing vines growing up the external faces of the central light well and rear decks.

We at the AGDF are very impressed, and are looking forward to seeing more high performance sustainable office spaces developed and available in Brisbane.
