Director of Rating Tools

Director of Rating Tools

The New Zealand Green Building Council (NZGBC) is delighted to welcome David Craven as its new Director of Rating Tools.

David joins us from Woods Bagot where he held multiple roles in Melbourne and London, most recently as the Leader Sustainability and Workplace. David has also held roles with the Green Building Council of Australia, Sustainability Victoria and the Centre for Design at Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology.

Chief Executive of NZGBC, Alex Cutler said, ‘“We are delighted to have David join the team. David’s international experience in sustainable and green building design and in developing rating tools will be invaluable in helping steer the direction and development of our rating tools going forwards.

David joins us as NZGBC announced the 100th Green Star rating of a New Zealand project. This achievement is an important milestone for NZGBC and one that confirms that the commercial property sector is recognising the benefits of green buildings. Increasingly the industry is realising that to maximise value and performance, our buildings need to be designed and built with people, and the environment, in mind and David will be at the forefront of driving this forward.

David said ‘I’m very excited to be joining the New Zealand Green Building Council at this time of economic growth. Ensuring that the user experience of our rating tools is streamlined and efficient is a key priority for me, as is making sure that the tools continue to encourage and recognise industry best practice as it evolves.’
