MaC Architects – “Thinking differently”
Mary Haw of PJ Carew Consulting assisted Aurecon’s international team of sustainable building specialists with documentation relating to the Green Star SA rating process. She reports that the Aurecon Century City building “has achieved a 5-Star Green Star SA rating with none of the ‘gadgets’ that one may associate with a green building. there are no photovoltaic panels, no wind turbines or ‘new age’ materials.”
This demonstrates that a commercial office building can reach a high level of sustainability by good design that is within an average budget of this type of office building. At MaC Architects, green interventions are well integrated into the building design rather than being an afterthought.
