Project Details

Client: Macquarie Group
Dates: June 2012 - June 2013
Location: Sydney, Australia
Whilst working at: Arup


The Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA) is leading the way in the development of sustainability rating tools for office, residential, education and public buildings. These ratings celebrate the vision of the developers and building owners but also add long lasting value by encouraging design teams and asset managers to think in terms of the future, not business as usual.

While at Arup, I worked closely with the Building Services Team and the Facades Team to develop Innovation Credits for submission to the GBCA. Often developed in an attempt to reach for excellence in building design and user experience, the Innovation Credits are the opportunity to do something that has never been done before.

For Macquarie Group, I led the development of a series of credits that ranged for enhanced building features to new apps and services to augment the experience and functionality of its new flagship 48 Martin Place headquarters. This included a  digital heritage interpretation strategy and a series of behaviour change strategies.
