Collins Square has been confirmed as market leaders in Australia for indoor environment quality after receiving 6 stars NABERS Indoor Environment ratings on all four towers owned and operated by Walker Corporation.
Walker Corporation Executive Chairman Lang Walker AO said it’s a proud moment in the evolution of Collins Square in Melbourne.
“Our company has always strived to put environmental sustainability and a quality indoor environment at the forefront of our construction using world’s best practice and technology,” Mr Walker said.
“It’s a tremendous achievement to secure 6 stars from NABERS on our all four Collins Square towers for Indoor Environment, marking us top of the class in thermal comfort, indoor air quality and acoustic performance.”
NABERS Director Carlos Flores said Walker Corporation have shown outstanding commitment to achieving the very best ratings.
“Indoor environmental quality is an essential measure of building performance. Buildings exist to provide comfortable, productive environments for people. Investment in healthy and sustainable buildings has never been more important.” Mr Flores said.
“We commend Walker Corporation’s Collins Square Towers for their significant efforts to make four different towers in this precinct beneficial for their occupants as well as the planet.”
Coupled with its second place energy rating ranking in NABERS’ national Sustainable Portfolios Index, Collins Square is demonstrating that leading environmental performance and a high quality indoor environment can both be achieved.
NABERS is a national independent rating system that measures the environmental performance of Australian buildings and tenancies. A NABERS Indoor Environment (IE) rating measures the indoor air quality, temperature and thermal comfort as well as the acoustic quality of a building.
