Sustainability is here for the long-term

We pride ourselves on guiding our clients toward best practices and showcasing the remarkable results that can be achieved through insightful thinking, integration of sustainability, and innovative co-design solutions.

The outcome is a harmonious blend of economic prosperity, social wellbeing, and environmental responsibility, culminating in developments that people are eager to be part of.

Green Star certification services

As a project management partner of the New Zealand Green Building Council (NZGBC), RDT Pacific shares a commitment to promoting healthier, eco-friendly buildings that adhere to the highest sustainable design and construction standards.

A building or community with Green Star certification has proven it meets best practice sustainable design and build benchmarks.

Green Star is an internationally recognised rating system that delivers independent verification of sustainable outcomes throughout the life cycle of the built environment.

We support NZGBC’s vision by bringing sustainable innovation to the forefront of our industry.

RDT Pacific Green Star Accredited Professionals have the skills to work on projects targeting Green Star and make high-quality submissions as part of the rating. We ensure the entire assessment process is a smooth, cost-effective and rewarding experience for all involved.

We are proud to have been the Project Manager and Green Star Accredited Professional to deliver the first Multiple Building Single Design Certification 6 Green Star in Aotearoa New Zealand.
