Tract Assists Brisbane Airport To Achieve Australian First

The Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA) has awarded Australia’s first Green Star – Communities rating to Brisbane Airport Corporation (BAC).

Brisbane Airport has achieved 4 Stars representing ‘Australian Best Practice’ under the current PILOT version of the Green Star – Communities rating tool.

Tract Consultants provided Green Star Accredited Professional (GSAP) services to the project, working closely with the BAC project team to achieve the rating.

The Green Star rating recognises BAC’s past, present and future activities relating to the whole of the 2,700 hectare site, as measured against benchmarks for Governance, Design, Liveability, Economic Prosperity, Environment and Innovation.

Importantly, a decision was made early in the submission preparation process to extend the Green Star certification request beyond the scope of the Property Master Plan (PMP) to address the Airport site as a whole.
GBCA’s Chief Executive Officer, Romily Madew, said: “This Green Star – Communities rating provides BAC with independent verification and global recognition for its vision and commitment to sustainable development. This is an enormous achievement not just for BAC, but for the people of Brisbane, who now have independent proof that the airport precinct is being planned and designed to deliver environmental, economic and social sustainability”.

BAC’s Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director, Julieanne Alroe, said: “I am extremely proud of the dedicated team at Brisbane Airport who have worked hard to achieve the first Green Star – Communities rating. This achievement gives us reassurance that we’re on the right track and further encourages us to do even more for sustainability so that Brisbane Airport is regarded as a world leader in this space”.

Prior to assisting BAC with the successful Green Star – Communities submission, Tract played a key role in the consortium that assisted BAC to prepare the current Brisbane Airport PMP.

Tract has also contributed to the development of the GBCA’s Green Star – Communities PILOT rating tool and is providing input on other PILOT projects around Australia.
