We make buildings greener

The impact of buildings on the environment is a popular topic of conversation at boardrooms across the country. It’s no longer an option to be sustainable, it’s an expectation. That’s why the companies serious about doing the best they can for the environment are turning to the WGE Sustainability team.

Our team of 15 people have been responsible for many outstanding environmentally sustainable projects including 1 McNab Avenue (Footscray), Wellington Central and the Affinity Village Clubhouse.

At WGE we aim to make buildings greener. We don’t see it as a ‘bolt on’. We see it as an integral consideration for every existing building and for every proposed construction project.

Our advice to clients

There’s a lot of ‘green wash’ in the market so always question the advice that you’ve been given and test the assumptions. An inexperienced sustainability consultant can lead a project completely off track which could end up being extremely costly and not achieve your sustainability goals. We saved a client over $500,000 after a meeting we led that tested the assumptions made by an inexperienced consultant.
