Thanks to the @gbcaus for featuring our great suburb in their article.

The first Green Star certificate presentation I attended as CEO was for RAAF Richmond, which achieved both Design, As Built and Interiors ratings in 2006. It was a real thrill for many reasons, but perhaps the greatest was the Department of Defence’s very visible commitment to leadership in sustainability. The Department said it wasn’t prepared to accept anything less than 5 Star Green Star, and it worked with the industry to achieve it. I remember then Defence Minister Brendan Nelson was as excited by the building as I was, and said at the time that the $13 million price tag was money well spent when considering the lifetime running costs. It was also the first project on which I worked with Paolo Bevilacqua, who is now recognised as one of Australia’s pre-eminent sustainability leaders.
