Good Environmental Choice Australia (GECA) sets the standard for environmental performance across the lifecycle of a product, and provides architects, procurement managers, interior designers, building industry professionals and consumers with an independent, reliable and credible way to make environmentally preferred choices. GECA’s robust standards and independent certification process helps manufacturers take action to improve the environmental and social impacts of their products and be one of the leaders in their industry.
The Worldpark 01 project for Coffey International is one example of an award winning building, featuring fitouts using GECA certified products – in this case with GECA-certified Zenith Interiors furniture – Jaks Pedestal Stool, Lunar Workstation, Open Lounge Chair with Headrest and Soul Chair. Worldpark 01 consolidates Coffey International from a number of disparate locations across Adelaide into one workplace environment delivering the benefits of increased knowledge sharing and improved efficiencies.
Coffey’s workplace within the precinct provides an open, naturally lit environment featuring chilled beam air conditioning, external views and a diversity of locales to meet and work. As part of the co-location project, purpose built laboratory spaces and soil testing facilities are provided on-site, ensuring staff from all groups within Coffey have been catered for. At the heart of the workplace design is a large central atrium, where the whole organisation can come together and interact. The atrium is accessed via an interconnecting stair and includes a communal library, function facilities and lounge.
