Andrea’s role at the New Zealand Green Building Council includes reviewing and improving aspects of the Green Star rating tool and launching new tools to the New Zealand market. This involves active engagement with industry - from products and materials suppliers and manufacturers, design professionals, higher education and government agencies through to facilities managers, building owners and developers.
Andrea delivers Green Star professional training, presents at NZGBC and industry events, and undertakes business development initiatives to inspire building owners and developers to pursue certification for their developments.
Andrea has a Bachelor of Architecture (hons) and worked in architectural practices both New Zealand and Vancouver, Canada, before joining the NZGBC in 2012.
Discover how you can measure and continually improve upon your buildings' operational impacts with NZGBC's 'Green Star - Performance', a tool that assesses the operational performance of all types of existing buildings across nine holistic impact categories.
Since the introduction of Green Star in 2007, the NZGBC has been successful in certifying over 130 new building and fit-out projects in New Zealand. Whilst this is an outstanding achievement, the NZGBC is now focusing its sights on improving the existing building market.
