Abstract

The new building that houses the Mirvac School of Sustainable Development at Bond University (Australia), opened in June 2008, is the first education building in Australia to receive a rating of six Green Stars under the Green Building Council of Australia's environmental rating scheme. It was awarded the RICS Sustainability prize for 2009. The building features a wide range of techniques and initiatives that combine to make the building a landmark for sustainable design and building in Australia and beyond. Central to the design is a range of technologies including extensive use of recycled materials, particularly Australian hardwood, onsite power generation through photovoltaics, wind and bio-diesel, rainwater harvesting and greywater recycling, and the recycling or re-use of 90% of the waste generated during construction. The selection and supply of materials contributed significantly to the building achieving the maximum possible Green Star rating.
