The Total Office, a UAE-based company specializing in modern, ergonomic and environment friendly workspace solutions, has achieved ‘LEED Silver certification’ for its flagship showroom in Dubai, which is located in the Grosvenor Business Tower in Tecom.
The 7,000ft2 showroom has been designed by Mehdi Moazzen from UAE-based design firm Point of Design. In just over a year since the inauguration of the showroom, the company has been certified in LEED for its commercial interiors. The move was facilitated by Energy Management Services International (EMS).
On an average, The Total Office’s Dubai showroom uses 30% less energy than a typical showroom of the same size and utilises technologies such as automatic dimming lights, LED lighting, energy saving appliances; and ensures indoor environment quality and water efficiency.
“Achieving LEED Silver Certification for our Dubai showroom represents our commitment towards reducing our carbon footprint and follows on from the LEED certification achieved for our Abu Dhabi facility, which was a first in the capital,” said Siddharth Peters, managing director, The Total Office.
“The reality is that every person that walks into our showroom has the opportunity to see green building in action and more importantly we get to practice what we preach. Significantly, the manufacturers we partner with are also committed to creating sustainable working environments and so we have a range of green products in store including ergonomic chairs and energy-saving LED lighting.”
