23.5.2012 - LEED PLATINUM for Main Point Karlin, Prague

The Main Point Karlin has become the first one in the Czech Republic to receive the LEED PLATINUM certificate from the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). The building reached the absolutely highest rating, which can be reached within this prestigious international rating system, and has become the first building in Central and East Europe that can pride itself in having such high rating. The LEED certification for Main Point Karlin was based on a number of innovative measures and environment-friendly features, which have a positive impact on the actual project, the indoor environment as well as wider surroundings. These features, for example, include the unique shell of the building with vertical glass-concrete wall piers working as sunshades, the cooling system of the building using water from the river of Vltava and inductions units, thanks to which the building achieves incomparably better standards of comfort, noise level and overall quality of indoor environment than is the case of standard office buildings of the highest category A. The energy efficiency of Main Point Karlin is thus better by up to 38 % as compared with a standard office building defined by the ASHRAE standard.
