holistic sustainability

Sustainable Materials selection

With all types of building projects (new builds, extensions, renovations or fit-outs) smart sustainable material choices can help support and encourage more sustainable building practices as well as providing a better indoor environment for occupants.

Choice of building fit-out materials and furnishings

  • Third party accredited finishes and fittings – GECA, Green Tag
  • Carpets / carpet tiles including cushion backed carpet tiles to improve comfort levels and get closer to the feel of carpet
  • Fabrics to include significant recycled components – predominantly but not exclusively (as a preliminary search strategy)
  • Desk systems
  • No unsustainable rainforest timber
