The Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA) replaced its legacy rating tools in 2014 with the introduction of the ‘Design & As Built Rating Tool’. Rather than apply a points system according to the type of building being assessed, the new tool updated the benchmarks and covered all building types – and it’s good news for steel users. Not only does steel, as a recyclable product, have sustainability benefits, it will contribute to a building’s Green Star rating.
