Green Star - Interiors NZ

The NZGBC is now able to rate all types of fitouts, not only offices.

The Green Star - Office Interiors (2009 & v3) rating tools were developed for office fitouts only. For most other fitout types in New Zealand, there is now the opportunity to apply the Green Star – Interiors NZv1.0 rating tool. This includes retail, industrial and public-building fitouts.

The Green Star - Interiors rating tool was originally developed by the Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA) for all fitouts and was released in 2014. Green Star Interiors NZv1.0 is an adaptation of the Australian-developed Green Star – Interiors v1.2 and can be used to certify base buildings of any typology.

In 2018, NZGBC published the pilot submission guidelines for Green Star Interiors NZv1.0. In 2019, NZGBC incorporated the changes from the pilot into the submission guidelines and made further refinements to them following industry feedback.

NZGBC is now able to rate all types of buildings. The currently Green Star Design & As Built NZ is designed for any typology and will supersede the need for Green Star Custom tools and The Green Star - Office Interiors (2009 & v3) rating tools.
