The Fonterra Centre is a 5 Star Green Star design rated office building that is modern, comfortable, innovative and highly sustainable. Sustainability is woven throughout the design.
A large double-glazed atrium fills the building with natural light, while a variety of workspaces and an internal staircase encourage collaboration across the activity-based work environment.
Sustainability features include:
- 5 Star Green Star Design certification;
- Large atrium and skylight contributing to good natural light levels;
- Outdoor air supplied from exposed stainless ducts on the north and south external elevations;
- Internal green wall irrigated from harvested rainwater;
- End of trip facilities to encourage alternative commuting options; and
- Property Council NZ ‘Excellence’ award in commercial category and ‘Merit’ in the green building category.
The building is also expected to achieve a 6 Star Green Star Fitout certification and 4 to 5 star NABERSNZ ratings when assessed.
