May 19th, 2008
The Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA) has awarded The Gauge, the evolutionary new Lend Lease commercial development at 825 Bourke Street, Victoria Harbour, Melbourne, a 6 Star Green Star – Office Design Certified Rating – recognising world leadership.
The Gauge, designed and constructed by Lend Lease, is the first private sector, completed new building to achieve this rating. Significantly, it has delivered this environmental solution at a highly competitive construction cost.
Lend Lease Chief Operating Officer, Mr Ross Taylor, said The Gauge was another example of Lend Lease striving to set new sustainable milestones in the global property market, following the success of 30 The Bond.
“The Gauge is one of the very first new buildings to be acknowledged with a 6 Star Green Star rating for its design, and clearly demonstrates that leading sustainable technology and commercial viability can go hand in hand.
“The Gauge makes the business case for green buildings; and it sets a new global benchmark for Lend Lease’s green building project portfolio,” said Mr Taylor.
The Gauge was developed by Lend Lease Development, with project and construction management by Bovis Lend Lease and architecture by Lend Lease design.
Lend Lease Investment Management Australia’s Chief Executive Officer, Mr Tarun Gupta, said The Gauge is APPF’s first 6 Star Green Star certified commercial office design and the first completed 6 Star new building to be offered for lease in a city location within the Australian market.
