CALL FOR ENERGY RATING SYSTEM IN NZ

 

Recent studies have suggested that energy-efficient buildings get more tenant interest than their non energy-efficient counterparts, due to their lower operational costs and minimal waste output. Energy Management Association of New Zealand suggests that this country needs a compulsory energy rating system to properly identify and grade energy-efficient commercial buildings.  WOR followed the $70m BNZ Building on Waterloo Quay in Wellington (completed 2009), which received a five-star green rating for its design and construction. At present, WOR is following several large new buildings which will have a five-star green rating, including a new low-rise office complex in Thorndon, Wellington (J118493).
