The new company's headquarters, located on Barbacena Avenue in the Center-South region of Belo Horizonte, is the first work in Minas Gerais to receive the international certification, LEED Gold category, which recognizes high standards of environmental sustainability. The 30-story building with four underground levels has night ventilation to cool the structure, an air conditioning system, high performance lighting, and an automatic control system that harnesses rainwater, reducing consumption by 40%. These and other innovations have generated a 19% reduction in energy consumption compared to similar buildings.
PENETRON ADMIX, PENEBAR SW-55 and PENETRON were used on all basement structures, making them impermeable, durable and cost effective; PENESEAL PRO was used to seal the parking area.
