EDGE Certification for Tohme-Rizk Building in Byblos

The Tohme-Rizk building in Byblos successfully obtained the International Finance Corporation’s EDGE (Excellence in Design for Greater Efficiency) certification, the first such certification for an office building in Lebanon.   EDGE indicated that the Tohme-Rizk Building’s resource-efficient design will result in reductions of 41% in energy, 29% in water, and 34% in materials-embodied energy.  It will also reduce, at no additional capital cost, the building’s utility expenses by $600 per month, while saving the environment 21 tCO2 per year.
