GBCA Green Star credits

It’s good to be Green

If you’re an architect or developer it’s likely you’ve heard about Green Star, Australia’s first comprehensive rating system for evaluating the environmental design and performance of Australian buildings from the GBCA.

What you may not know is that the Interpon D range of architectural powder coatings contributes to gaining Green Star points within several rating tools. Emissions of volatile organic compounds from paints and office fit out items are covered within the Indoor Environment Quality (IEQ) green star category.

Our entire range of architectural powder coatings contribute towards satisfying the IEQ two (2) green star credit points as outlined in:

  1. IEQ11 Office Interiors v1.1
  2. IEQ13 Office Design v3 and Office As-Built v3

and one (1) green star credit point as outlined in:

  1. IEQ8 Multi Unit Residential v1
  2. IEQ8 Retail Centre v1
  3. IEQ8 Education v1
  4. IEQ8 Healthcare v1
  5. IEQ8 Industrial v1.

Our powder coatings attract points because they do not contain organic solvents and emit zero VOCs.

By specifying Interpon Powder Coatings, you can accumulate Green Star points for your project, plus there’s the benefit to the environment as well. It’s a win-win all round and simply makes good sense.
