Congrats to Collingridge and Smith for achieving a 6 Green Star Rating (the highest you can get!) with their Te Mirumiru Early Childhood Centre


Previously blogged Te Mirumiru in Kawakawa, Northland has been deservedly awarded a 6-star Green Rating by The New Zealand Green Building Council (NZGBC) - the first educational building to receive the award, representing world leadership in sustainable construction.

With a gently curved concrete structure, the building is covered by earth and grass on its roof and unglazed sides, integrating it with the landscape and paying homage to the tribe’s customs and history (‘Ngati Hine of a hundred hills’).

Well done to Phil Smith and let us hope that more inspiring and "green" sustainable educational buildings follow in it's stead.
