Sustainability has become an important part of building design with Green Star, NABERS and WELL ratings commonplace in the commercial property sector. Historically, there has been less importance placed on sustainable design elements in the industrial sector. This is due to a number of factors including cost, market pressure and the unique development requirements of industrial buildings. However, increasingly more firms are seeing value in developing and retrofitting industrial buildings with a focus on environmentally sensitive design, improving operating costs, functionality and attracting tenants.
