Summertown Interiors, a leading sustainable fit-out contractor in the UAE, has partnered with design leaders and local authorities to present the ‘Green Day’ series of sustainability seminars at the upcoming 'Office Exhibition 2012' in Dubai.
The Green Day seminar, which will be held at the Dubai World Trade Centre on May 16, aims to 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 per cent success rate in delivering Leed certified projects for our clients, Summertown, together with industry leaders, will share valuable insights for creating and delivering sustainable workplaces,” remarked managing director Marcos Bish.

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.-TradeArabia News Service
