One Shelley Street certified with top sustainability rating
Released 26 July 2011



Brookfield’s One Shelley Street, King Street Wharf, Sydney has received a 6 Star Green – Office As Built V2 certified rating from the Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA).    

One Shelley Street is only the tenth building in Australia to achieve this certification and now has the certification in both ‘design’ and ‘as built’ categories.

Spanning 33,000 square metres over 11 levels, the award winning property, owned and operated by Brookfield Office Properties, is fully leased to Macquarie Group and was built by affiliate Brookfield Multiplex.

Kurt Wilkinson, Chief Operating Officer of Brookfield Office Properties, Australian Commercial Operations said the certification was testimony to Brookfield’s commitment to sustainability.

He said it shows the company works to incorporate sustainable design practices from the design phase through construction to the ongoing operation of the finished building.

A range of sustainable design features have been achieved including a passive chilled beam HVAC system, harbour water heat rejection, low flow water fixtures, and a high performance facade and central atrium that promotes natural light and mitigates solar load.

Green Building Council of Australia CEO Romilly Madew said to achieve a Green Star ‘Design’ rating requires a commitment to innovation and a holistic approach to green building design.

“By backing this up with a Green Star ‘As Built’ rating, Brookfield has confirmed that the sustainable design intentions were implemented during the construction process.”
