in energy savings, resulting in over 150 tonnes of CO2 which we save each year
The renovation of First Tower will reduce the building’s carbon intensity as well as its energy consumption. Every design decision considers the environmental and social impacts – resulting in actions to install full LED lighting, connect to the district heating network, replace ageing fan coil units and explore green energy contracts among others.
