Arup carried out the façades design, sustainability consultingenergy modeling and LEEDTM certification of this building which is intended to become an environmental example.

A sustainable building

For the design of this headquarters building, Coca Cola established a series of sustainability goals – for example; achieving maximum energy efficiency, FSC certification for wood components, achieving minimum water consumption, planting native flowers and the reuse of gray and rain water – both in the building and the landscape.

Furthermore, to ensure a good result from the concept, Arup focused on reducing the environmental impact of carbon emissions and maximizing the productivity of workers in the complex.

By obtaining the LEEDTM CI Gold rating, this building demonstrates both Coca Cola’s and Arup’s respect for the environment and their dedication to reducing harmful emissions, conserving energy and reusing resources where possible.
