Summertown Interiors to host sustainability seminars

Marcos Bish, Managing Director of Summertown

UAE-based Summertown Interiors will partner with design leaders and authorities to discuss market progress, tried and tested strategies and enhancing project value through sustainability, at The Office Exhibition 2012.

These seminars will form part of the ‘Green Day’ series at the event. Taking place at the Dubai World Trade Centre on May 16, 2012, the seminars will address UAE’s progress in sustainable architecture and design.

“As the first contractor in the UAE to be awarded LEED Gold Certification for our offices, and with a 100% success rate in delivering LEED certified projects for our clients, Summertown Interiors, together with industry leaders, will share valuable insights for creating and delivering sustainable workplaces,” said Marcos Bish, managing director, Summertown Interiors.


The programme will be divided into three sessions from 11am, 1.30pm and 3.30pm. All sessions are complimentary and are open to all registered visitors at The Office Exhibition 2012.

The first session will include a discussion on local and global perspectives on sustainable design featuring top architectural and interior design firms including Aedas, Bluehaus Group, DWP and Stride Treglown.

In the second session, the Emirates Green Building Council will show how maximising the potential of sustainable design from concept to delivery enhances project value.

This will be followed by another industry discussion in which ARCADIS Gulf, Pringle Brandon, the Dubai chamber of Commerce and ISG will reveal their tried and tested strategies for optimising project value through sustainability.

Green Day closes with a presentation of a number of sustainable project case studies in the Middle East.

The Office Exhibition 2012 takes place from May 15-17, 2012 at The Dubai World Trade Centre.
