Forward Thinking Building: Aiming for LEED Platinum Rating
Built around the forward thinking towards reducing long term environmental impact, it aims to reach the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Platinum rating. Each component of the Sequis Tower is designed with careful consideration towards international standards as a guarantee to ensure quality and impacts to its surroundings. Its green building concept will minimize Air Conditioner use as the double-glazed glass curtain wall will reduce the heat inside the office building by minimizing the solar radiation level, and at the same time this technology will reduce the building operating cost for tenants.
Sequis Tower also aims to set the example of a modern property with the true international standards in Indonesia. “We believe the construction of Sequis Tower is the reflection of the international business growth in Jakarta as Sequis Tower was developed to serve the needs of the business sector that need an international standard office space. Echoing our “Think Beyond” vision, we realize that a consideration towards long term environmental impact and life quality improvement has become a significant factor in selecting a property. Sequis Tower will not be seen just as a fulfillment of the need for a working space, but also as a symbol of quality, success, and concern toward the environment.” explained Dougie Crichton, President Director PT Prospero Realty.
