KBR Helps Deliver Green Train Station

The North West Program Alliance (NWPA), comprised of Victorian Government authority Level Crossing Removal Project (LXRP), Metro Trains Melbourne, construction partner John Holland, and design partner KBR, recently delivered the first train station in Australia to be awarded a 5 Star Green Star As Built Rating (using a custom railways tool) by the Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA).

Receiving the rating for Reservoir Station in Melbourne’s northern suburbs reflects NWPA’s ability to collaborate and innovate to create a sustainable future for the Victorian community. GBCA’s Green Star rating is an internationally recognized award that assesses the sustainability outcomes of infrastructure projects, from the initial design stage through construction and the final outcome. NWPA’s key achievements at Reservoir Sta tion include a 41% reduction in electricity demand during peak hours; a 92% calculated reduction in operational water use; low use of volatile organic compounds and formaldehyde products; improved air quality inside the station; and 100% use of responsibly sourced steel. The 5 Star Green Star As Built rating reflects KBR’s mission to create sustainable and innovative solutions and collaborate with alliance partners, customers, and governments to uphold their sustainability values.
