Manager Green Star
Brad is the Manager of the Green Star rating tool where he assists the Green Star team and identifies new opportunities to use the quiver of Green Star tools (Design and As-Built, Performance, Interior, Communties) to make buildings better.
Brad has had a passion about all things related to water for some time. He has a diverse background related to this element including many years doing environmental and safety inspections/ audits of vessels. While getting his Geography Masters degree back in the late 1990s Brad first heard about Sustainability and Green Buildings. As a result his internship with the State of Oregon Architect assisted with drafting a policy requiring state buildings to be green when LEED was first emerging. Ever since then he has been advocating for green buildings and sustainability including starting up his own business creating and installing rainwater catchment systems in Portland, Oregon. Living in Portland he was exposed to many different technologies and practices including natural building and green roofs among many others. Brad has a positive outlook on seeing what he and NZGBC can do to encourage healthier and more environmentally friendly buildings in Aotearoa..
