DUBAI CHAMBER OF COMMERCE
In 2009, the Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry (DCCI) has achieved LEED certification at Certified level for their building based on the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) LEED for Existing Buildings (LEED-EB v2.0). DCCI became the first existing building in the Middle East and 4th outside of North America to achieve the coveted LEED certification for Existing Buildings.
Since then, DCCI has undertaken a number of steps to improve its environmental performance and has recently refitted the building and applied green strategies, making the building one of the safest, healthiest, environmentally-friendly and design winning workplaces in Dubai for their staff and tenants.
During the LEED Recertification process, DCCI wishes to upgrade the building certification level to Gold level, under the LEED 2009 for Existing Buildings Operations and Maintenance rating system from the U.S. Green Building Council. The LEED-EBOM recertification process permits the project to upgrade the certification level during the process of recertification by achieving additional credits to score at least total 60 points.
DCCI engaged the services of LEED Consultant, Green Technologies FZCO to assist them in the recertification process and provide guidance to ensure that the requirements for achieving LEED Gold are complied with.
