Sustainable complex earns LEED first for Malta
A recently opened office block on Malta’s Tigné Point has been awarded LEED gold accreditation, the first development on the peninsula of the Mediterranean island nation to earn the recognition.
The honor, officials said, confirms The Centre’s commitment to achieving minimal environmental impact on its surroundings, reports the Times of Malta.
The Centre achieved LEED certification for implementing practical and measurable strategies and solutions aimed at achieving high performance in sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental quality.
“There is a growing need and demand for green buildings across all sectors and organizations, and hopefully this award and recognition will encourage others to follow suit,” The Centre’s CEO, JanKarl Farrugia, said.
Consisting of two blocks connected via an atrium bridge overlooking the historic Garden Battery, which is also currently undergoing restoration, The Centre is the latest phase at the mixed-use development to be completed. The Centre provides 15,000 square meters of office space over nine floors and a central location with extensive views of the seafront and over the piazza.
