Green Buildings

No, it's not something that's achieved with a coat of paint. It's the basis of an article by They've just published a list of the Top 10 most environmentally-friendly buildings in Australia. [see pics]

Number 1 was the CH2 building in Melbourne, which i have talked about previously, and number 10 on the list was the Green Square South Tower here in Brisbane.

Due for completion next month, and to be used by Brisbane City Council, it has been given a greenhouse rating of 4.5 stars. This is due to its energy saving of 320,000 kWh per year (equal to 300,000kg of carbon dioxide).
