The Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA) has announced two new Directors to the GBCA Board, Nicole Lockwood and Josephine Sukkar.

Chair of the Board, Susan Lloyd-Hurwitz, says she is delighted to welcome Nicole and Josephine who will bring decades of experience to the Board.

“Nicole Lockwood has a strong background which spans across law, government and advisory,” Lloyd-Hurwitz says.

“As the deputy chair of Infrastructure Western Australia and a former board member of Infrastructure Australia Ms Lockwood has a strong understanding of large-scale infrastructure planning and delivery and will help us to expand our influence in this space.”

“Josephine Sukkar is the principal of Australian construction company Buildcorp, which she established with her husband over 30 years ago. Her training as a research scientist, coupled with deep experience in construction and governance will bring rounded experience to the board.”

Lloyd-Hurwitz thanked the outgoing Board members Rod Fehring and John Flecker who have both made outstanding contributions to GBCA, helping to deliver the biggest overhaul of Green Star through the release of Green Star Buildings which will lead the shift to net zero buildings across Australia.

“Rod Fehring and John Flecker have been instrumental in the development of Green Star Buildings which looks beyond the environment to human health, resilience, people and place. They have also played significant roles in helping to drive the strategy for Green Star Homes which we look forward to releasing to the market early next year,” Lloyd-Hurwitz says.
