Auckland’s newest high-rise tower – The Deloitte Centre – is currently under construction at 80 Queen Street and is the city’s first five star Green Star NZ commercial office block and one of only two certified five star buildings in New Zealand. Jane Henley, CEO of the New Zealand Green Building Council says “These projects have now set the bar for new commercial office space”.



When people think of ‘Green Building’, rarely would they associate demolition contractors with the same cause. However, Jane and a growing number of the Council’s members understand how demolition, recycling and the use of recycled materials can contribute points towards the Councils Green Star NZ rating – a national standard that aims to reduce the environmental impact of buildings both during construction and throughout the building’s operational life time.

Brookfield Multiplex chose Ward Group as demolition contractor for this pilot project – taking into account their proven ability to recycle large volumes of waste. “Demolition jobs of this size can produce more waste than most contractors can deal with” says Mike Schultze, Safety and Environment Manager at Brookfield Multiplex.

Recycling a minimum of 75% of waste by weight is a key criterion for Green Star credits and is the minimum required to qualify for points. Ward Group achieved an impressive 96% – though it wasn’t easy. Both organisations needed to think creatively and pro-actively seek new markets for some of the site’s salvaged materials.

Mike Schultze and Brookfield Multiplex Environmental Officer & ESD Coordinator – Dean Raynel worked together to develop and implement the necessary checks and balances ensuring that project waste material was accurately measured and recorded both on and off-site. An audit of the Ward Group recovery yards was conducted and new systems were implemented specifically to ensure traceability for Green Star reporting. As a pilot project for the new national rating system, there was a lot of learning and unexplored territory for both Ward and Brookfield Multiplex to traverse.
