Style bamboo flooring features in ‘über’ cool design
A recent Green Star compliant project for Parsons Brinckerhoff at Freshwater Place in Melbourne’s Southbank has featured Style® bamboo flooring. The result can only be described as ‘über’ cool design. The Style Uniclic® floating floor was specified due to its strong environmental credentials.
The team at Incorp Design were the creative thrust behind the ultra cool office design. After a stringent environmental review process they were able to substantiate the ‘green’ credentials claimed by Style to satisfy the requirements for 100% Green Star points as awarded by the Green Building Council of Australia. Style is Australia’s only eco-certified bamboo flooring.
The client’s requirements for a Green Star compliant fit-out drove the designers to look beyond the normal ‘green wash’ claims made by suppliers and only specify products that could be supported by verified independent (third party) certification.
According to Parsons Brinckerhoff, “…sustainability is not treated as an ‘add-on’ but an integral part of our business. For this reason sustainability does not fall under one capability or service. Instead it permeates all we do.”
All Style branded bamboo flooring products have attained The Good Environmental Choice Australia (GECA) certification for Green Star rating. The GECA eco-label enables architects to specify Style with confidence.
