Brad Crowley is Senior Manager, Buildings and Communities at NZGBC. He assists the Green Star team and identifies new opportunities for using the range of Green Star tools (Design and As-Built, Performance, Interior, Communities) to make buildings and communities better.

Brad Crowley is passionate about all things related to water. He has a diverse background related to this element including many years undertaking environmental and safety inspections/ audits of vessels. Brad first heard about Sustainability and Green Buildings in the late 1990’s while obtaining his Master’s degree in Geography. Ever since, he’s been advocating for green buildings and sustainability including starting up his own business creating and installing rainwater catchment systems in Portland, Oregon. His time in Portland also introduced him to many different technologies and practices including natural building, green roofs, and positive urban planning.
