Abode – The Apartment Hotel is very excited to announce that it’s third hotel, Abode Woden, is award-winning before the doors have even opened.
Due to open in August, Abode Woden won the Commercial Sustainable Construction category at the 2013 Master Builders Association Excellence in Building Awards, held last week.
The award is very fitting with the new hotel targeted to be the first Green Star and NABERS rated hotel in Australia; a very exciting achievement for a Canberra hotel brand.
Abode – The Apartment Hotel Managing Director, Nick Georgalis said, “We are very proud to have been honoured in the commercial sustainable category at the MBA Excellence in Building Awards as it highlights what we have set out to achieve for our business and our brand. We are not only seeking a Green Star rating tool for Abode Woden (a refurbishment of Juliana House), but are actively working with the Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA) to customise Green Star and adapt it to suit hotels. This not only demonstrates leadership in achieving the first Green Star rating for a hotel, but will also drive industry transformation by setting clear benchmarks for hotels and mixed use projects.”
