Salvation Army walk the talk with Green Star fitout

The popularity of Green Star fitouts is gathering pace with businesses recognising the benefits of reduced energy consumption, more efficient lighting, user adjustable heating and cooling as well as reduced water consumption. The benefits span from a healthier work environment to an improved bottom line in terms of energy consumption costs.

When the Salvation Army relocated their headquarters to a newly constructed facility in Blackburn, it seized the opportunity to develop a working environment that would align to its core ethical values by minimising environmental impact.

SHAPE created a fitout targeting a 4 Star Green Star accreditation, spanning 7000m² including a commercial kitchen, band rehearsal room, chapel, media studio and shop. Throughout the project SHAPE was required to address specific challenges:

  • Management of multiple stakeholders in specialist areas
  • Long lead times on recycled materials
  • Strict control of materials to ensure Green Star compliance
