Summertown Interiors has partnered with design leaders and local authorities to present the ‘Green Day’ series of sustainability seminars at The Office Exhibition 2012. Taking place at the Dubai World Trade Centre on 16 May 2012, the seminars will address the UAE’s progress in sustainable architecture and design, tried and tested strategies and how to enhance project value through adopting sustainable practices.

“As the first contractor in the UAE to be awarded LEED Gold Certification for our offices, and with a 100 percent success rate in delivering LEED certified projects for our clients, Summertown Interiors, together with industry leaders, will share valuable insights for creating and delivering sustainable workplaces,” said Marcos Bish, Managing Director, Summertown Interiors.

The ‘Green Day’ programme will be divided into three interactive sessions from 11am, 1.30pm  and 3.30pm  [please insert start times]. All sessions are complimentary and are open to all registered visitors at The Office Exhibition 2012.

During the first session both local and global perspectives on sustainable design will be discussed featuring some of the industry’s heavyweights in interior design including Bluehaus Group, AK Design and DWP.  In the second session, the Emirates Green Building Council will show how maximising the potential of sustainable design from concept to delivery enhances project value. This will be followed by another industry discussion in which ARCADIS Gulf, Pringle Brandon, the Dubai chamber of Commerce and ISG will reveal their tried and tested strategies for optimising project value through sustainability.

The ‘Green Day’ closes with a number of sustainable project case studies in the Middle East presented by industry leaders.
