100 Not out for EMF Griffiths

National Engineering Firm EMF Griffiths has reached the milestone of 100 stars, which is to say, it has worked on projects whose total green star tally is 100.

The Project that put EMF Griffiths over the top was the 5 star Green Star rating for the Ergon Energy building in Rockhampton. The Rockhampton project was the first Green Star awarded in the city, and only the third 5 star As Built (newly built or refurbished) office in Queensland. "We assess the environmental impact of construction practices, resource and consumption, indoor environment quality, land use and ecology, energy, water, transport and environmental emissions," says EMF director Matt Pontin, MAIRAH. "We know that a good environmental outcome need not result in escalated project costs. The reduction of a building's resource consumption has a positive effect on the overall life-cycle costing." "Through Passive ventilation, shading techniques and economy operation, a building can integrate into the environment, rather the fighting against it," Pontin Says "So the future is to think outside the air conditioned box."
