Award-winning construction company Built has outstripped the Green Star target for its $110 million refurbishment of 20 Martin Place.

The company was contracted to deliver a five Star Office As Built v3 rating but instead achieved the As Built rating of six Stars at no extra cost to client Pembroke Real Estate.

The project involved the complete reconstruction of the out-dated, 20-storey, 1970's office building.

The project team identified two additional Green Star points and 10 innovation points after initial stages of designed had targeted 65 points.

By retaining the 22 storey structural steel frame within the building it saved 1291 tonnes of CO2e.

20 Martin Place is one of Sydney's first commercial office buildings to be delivered with LED light fittings installed to all office floors.

The building features a 100 percent outside air system served via chilled beams at perimeter. 

With a total score of 77 points awarded by the GBCA during the Round 1 submission, the green building received World Leadership status, a rare occurrence.

The building is projected to emit 107,000 tonnes of CO2e emissions in operational energy use over the building’s expected 60-year life.
