Kathmandu Sustainable Store Standards
We’re developing a standard specification for the 15-20 stores that Kathmandu either fitout or refurbish each year. We’re using the Green Star Interiors PILOT to guide the specification and then we’ll apply the new specification to a store and apply for a 5 star rating. We’re also working to be able to use a volume certification model to rate the other stores.
Green Star assessments
Each month we review the submissions from 1-4 projects prepared by other consultants and submitted for assessment against the Green Star tools. Projects include Interiors, Office, Retail, Industrial and Education.
