Setting a new benchmark: KARELA OFFICE PARK is the first LEED® Gold certified building in Greece

Even though we, in DIMAND, are well accustomed to work on demanding projects that require passion, innovation and stamina, we definitely rank the KARELA OFFICE PARK as one of our most challenging and loved sites.

Our mission to achieve a fully operational sustainable building, with innovative workspaces and state-of-art eco-architecture lead us to follow the standards of the LEED® rating system, developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is the foremost programme for buildings, homes and communities that are designed, constructed, maintained and operated for improved environmental and human health performance.

KARELA OFFICE PARK was awarded LEED® Gold for implementing practical and measurable strategies and solutions aimed at achieving high performance in:

> sustainable site development

> water savings

> energy efficiency

> materials selections

> indoor environmental quality.

“With each new LEED-certified building, we get one step closer to USGBC’s vision of a sustainable built environment within a generation,” said Rick Fedrizzi, President, CEO & Founding Chair, U.S. Green Building Council. “As the newest member of the LEED family of green buildings, KARELA OFFICE PARK is an important addition to the growing strength of the green building movement.”

Over 44.000 projects are currently participating in the commercial and institutional LEED rating systems, comprising over 8 billion square feet of construction space in all 50 states and 120 countries. We are proud to have delivered one of these projects and to have set the example for the real estate development sector in Greece, realizing our vision to be innovative in every aspect of our business!
