CBRE Panama Tours Green Building Project, East Plaza (Costa del Este)

May 26, 2016

On Saturday May 14, the Sustainable Buildings Advisory team of CBRE | Panama attended and participated in the tour of the Green Project, Plaza del Este.

Plaza del Este has obtained LEED® GOLD Pre-Certification, which means it was designed within the standards established by the US Green Building Council (USGBC), in order to be part of the new vision of building environmentally friendly projects.

LEED® (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) is a voluntary certification system using international standards developed by the USGBC; the system is a framework to identify, operate and evaluate green buildings.

During the tour, the team observed the strategies employed during the Plaza del Este project's construction phase, including plans for erosion and sedimentation control, for waste management, and for air quality management.

The tour was coordinated by the Panama Green Building Council (PGBC), of which CBRE | Panama is a founding member. On behalf of Bern Companies, the guides were: Khenia Smith, engineer and Paola Medina, architect.
