LEED gold for Summertown HQ
New facility uses 35% less energy and up to 50% less water
Design firm Summertown has won LEED Gold for its headquarters in Jafza.
The certification means the firm is the first interiors company to win the accreditation in the UAE.
“As interior design and fit-out specialists of green interiors, it is vital that we lead by example. After successfully winning the LEED Gold rating we are in a position to efficiently assist companies who are keen on going green or try to convince others of the importance of having energy and environmentally friendly interiors,” said Summertown International managing director Marcos Bish.
The office uses 35% less energy, up to 50% less water and diverts over 90% of its waste from the landfill compared to a conventional building.
