6 Star Green Star Rating
The Melbourne School of Design building holds a 6 Star Green Star Design - Education Design v1 rating from the Green Building Council of Australia. It is the first education facility to be awarded the maximum 10 Green Star innovation credits.
The 6 Star Rating represents 'World Leadership' in environmentally sustainable building practices. At the time of its certification, only 12 buildings in Australia had received a 6 Star Green Star - Education Design v1 rating, and our building was the largest to achieve this. Significantly, our building is the only one to ever be awarded all 10 innovation points possible in the evaluation criteria.
This is a testament to the quality of the design and construction and we are especially proud that this is the University of Melbourne's first 6 Star Green Star rated building - an exemplar of sustainable architectural design on campus.
