CBUS Property and ISPT’s 1 William St Brisbane has won global recognition, receiving a 6-Star Green Star – Performance ‘World Leadership’ rating.

Home to the state government, 1 William is one of only 16 buildings in Australia and one of three in Queensland to receive this top level of certification.

The building has also been recognised as Queensland’s very first 6-Star Green Star As-Built and 6-Star Green Star – Performance rated building with the combined rating recognising achievements across a range of categories including Building Management, Indoor Environment Quality, Energy, Transport, Water, Materials, Land Use and Ecology, Emissions and Innovation.

“As joint owners, Cbus Property and ISPT are very proud to have 1 William Street recognised as Global Best Practice in sustainability through design and operation,” Cbus Property’s executive manager of asset management Chris Hardy said. “When the State Government released their initial brief, we wanted to be proactive in partnering with them to construct a building that not only aligned with their comprehensive sustainability requirements, but exceeded them.”

JLL’s 1 William Street Management team worked with an internal Green Star accredited professional to manage the Green Star certification process and to coordinate the activities and documentation directly with the site team, which streamlined the overall process.

“Sustainability initiatives are a major focus at JLL and we have worked with building owners nationally to help achieve 11 of the 16 ‘World Leadership’ Green Star – Performance rated buildings in Australia.” JLL national director John McBeath said.
