Maunsell AECOM

Five Star Green Star standards

Maunsell AECOM, one of the fastest growing engineering consulting firms in the Asia Pacific region, was moving to the GPO, a landmark heritage building in Perth. SHAPE  was engaged by Thinc Projects as Construction Manager to complete a $20 million fitout to 5 Star Green Star standard. The GPO is Perth’s only refurbished building to be awarded a Green Star rating for the base building design.

A successful result

SHAPE  partnered with AECOM’s sustainability consultant to determine and document the environmental impact of each fitout component. The furnishings were chosen for their modularity and reusability and the majority of workstations had access to natural light. The fitout included showers and change rooms to encourage the use of bicycles by commuters. The project was the first fitout to achieve a 5 Star Green Star rating in WA.


"This was such an important project and SHAPE did an outstanding job. They have the expertise and credentials to work on high end Green Star projects.”
