First 4 Star Green Star in Australia

The Royal Adelaide Hospital has become the first large-scale hospital development in Australia to achieve a 4 Star Green Star – Healthcare As Built rating from the Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA).

“Research from the World Green Building Council has shown that incorporating green design in hospital infrastructure can deliver an 8.5% reduction in hospital stays, 15% faster recovery rates, a 22% reduction in the need for pain medication and an 11% reduction in secondary infections"

“But it’s not just the environment that benefits from green buildings, it’s the people who use them. The sustainability elements of Royal Adelaide Hospital add up to hugely improved amenity for patients, visitors and staff.”
