Sydney, Australia – Westpac Group’s fit-out in Tower Two of Barangaroo’s International Towers Sydney has achieved a 6 Star Green Star Interiors rating from the Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA). The project received the highest number of Green Star points achieved by any office fit-out in Australia. 

Notable design features of the fit-out include an extensive metering system that monitors major energy and water usage, using materials with lower environmental impact such as 95 percent reused, recycled, certified or best practice timber and PVC amongst other features.

Westpac’s John Harries, Group General Manager, Operations, Property and Commercial Services said, “We are proud that we’ve been able to support the Barangaroo precinct’s goal of becoming Australia’s first carbon neutral community. In addition to receiving the highest score, we are also in a 6 Star Green Star Building, with the first 6 Star Green Star bank branch – St.George.”
