Green Star Construction Manual

We developed an industry leading ‘Green Star Construction Manual’ addressing how to build a Green Star building, during our award-winning construction of the ForestrySA headquarters at Mount Gambier. This was Australia’s first 5-Star regional building. The Green Star Construction Manual acts as a checklist for us and our clients when undertaking environmentally sustainable projects.
