Office plants are now a sustainable trend considering the global efforts done to counter climate change. Green buildings have been widely adapted in Australia and will be a booming trend in 2021.
The Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA) was a pioneer of this design trend in 2002; GBCA initiated green building practices through market-based solutions. They implemented the Green Star system to rate the environmental performance of a building which plays a significant role in corporate social responsibility for businesses in Australia.
Green buildings with office plants also promote health and wellness, which can make staff members more focused and less stressed. They also become motivated, and motivated staff members become productive. As a result, their productivity also increases. We know that even a small increase in productivity can create a big impact on the business’ performance.
Green buildings in Australia
Office space developers now capitalise on the ongoing trends of health and wellness by creating green buildings. Mirvac and Frasers Property, one of the biggest names in the real estate industry in Australia, designed spaces that encouraged a healthy lifestyle and behaviour among its employees. They believe that healthy buildings make healthy people who are productive.
The 25 King in Brisbane, Queensland also has a fascinating green building design which is considered as the tallest engineered timber office building. It is made of timber from roof to floor, which makes it very tempting to touch the walls when walking around. The green-covered wall full of flora is also found in the entrance lobby making a warm first impression to its guests. Indoor plants are also beautifully landscaped in different areas in the building.
