The Agility Management Building, which was finalized in January 2017, was built with state-of-the-art sustainability features that maximizes the use of natural light while improving overall cooling efficiency and energy use. The 834 sq.m. building is equipped with solar thermal panels, which provide the energy needed to operate the air-conditioning units. The building also includes triple-pane windows that are covered in electro chromic coating, to adjust tint in response to external conditions, allowing light to pass through while blocking heat and increasing energy efficiency. Tarek Sultan, Vice Chairman and CEO, Agility said, “Responsibility is ingrained in Agility’s corporate DNA, and we take carbon footprint reduction very seriously. Creating a better environment for our talent is an important component of our overall sustainability efforts.” At the time of writing in Kuwait, Agility is one of only four certified projects, and one of 38 registered LEED projects in the country. Incorporating green building practices in the construction industry is a critical way for Kuwaiti companies to help meet the country’s sustainability targets.
