Parkway Corporate Center recently bagged its v4 Core and Shell rating, the first office development in the Philippines to have the latest version of LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification.
The LEED Certification is an outline that ensures a building’s sustainable goals and green strategies are successfully met.
Parkway achieved the certification by adopting comprehensive green building practices. Among other things, it uses low-e glass to reduce the “heat island effect”.
This lessens the impact on the environment and lowers the cost of cooling the building all-year round. The development used regional materials like concrete and steel sourced from local suppliers to support the Philippine economy, and reduce the environmental impact of transporting materials from distant suppliers.
