The first commercial building to achieve LEED certification in Brazil. It was also the first commercial building to be certified by the US Greenbuilding Council as a LEED Certified Core & Shell in Latin America and the second outside the United States. For soil control stringent and rigorous methods were applied for decontamination and disposal of soil, in addition to careful site excavation. The project for the building prioritized the use of recycled and recyclable materials and new materials were aligned with carbon credits and/or certificates.
The concern with the predominant use of natural lighting was one of the project's basic premises aimed not only at energy efficiency but also at the integration of users. Insolation control was done by technology applied to construction, including the use of low emissivity glass and double glass facade. There was also the concern with landscaping and the orientation of the building in relation to the wind direction.
As a key feature of the project, energy efficiency was achieved by focusing on the main energy consumer in this system - the air conditioning - whose consumption accounts for 50 to 60% of a building of this size. In this respect, as well as measures taken for thermal comfort, an air conditioning system was designed to: reduce CFC emission through the choice of gas; increase energy efficiency of the equipment; generate chilled water by multiple air chillers with ample modulation capacity, and treat the outdoor air. The air distribution system is optimized through the raised floor, assigning different areas for heat use and combat. The skylight system, which increases energy efficiency through the "daylight" effect uses natural heat and not electricity in its thermal protection system.
Optimization of water use is done through the collection of rainwater and the air conditioner condensation water. This is responsible for supplying 40% of the expected daily water consumption through reuse of this water for washing, irrigation and toilets. Furthermore, other devices were used to reduce water consumption, such as timed taps.
