SONAS Bathrooms were proud to supply DB Schenker’s new 220,000Sq ft flagship facility at Liffey Business Campus.
SONAS were tasked with providing a specification for the project by the Head of Sustainability at CBRE to meet a LEED Gold Rating.
LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is a voluntary rating system to certify sustainable buildings and neighbourhoods. The certification confirms that a building is designed and built to achieve a performance that surpasses national standards for energy savings, water efficiency, CO2 emissions reduction, indoor environmental quality, sterwardship of resources and environmental impacts.
Some of the requirements included electric charging points, solar panels for renewable power along with emphasis on employee wellness inside the grade A office building. Included also was a requirement for sustainable bathroom solutions which is where our SONAS commercial team set about devising solutions.
As a member of the Unified Water Label, SONAS are committed to offering a wide range of water saving bathroom products and so we were delighted to assist DB Schenker in their bid to achieve LEED Gold standard for their new facility.
A key challenge for the team was achieving the LEED Gold standard without compromising on the aesthetics of the project, a goal which was important to all stakeholders, RKD architects, CBRE and the client, DB Schenker.
RKD architects visited SONAS HQ, where various product solutions were demonstrated by our commercial specification team and together a specification was agreed which achieved the necessary water and energy saving requirements while not compromising on the architect's design vision for the project.
SONAS provided high quality water saving sanitary ware, taps and brassware to meet the LEED Gold standard, including:
