Said Rakesh Lakra, Re­gional VP, Shaw Floors In­dia, “Shaw Con­tract has al­ways cho­sen the en­vi­ron­men­tally smart ap­proach. From sourc­ing ma­te­ri­als and man­u­fac­tur­ing pro­cesses to our sales of­fices and re­cy­cling cen­tres have helped us meet LEED’S rig­or­ous stan­dards.” The Bengaluru Ex­pe­ri­ence Cen­ter met high stan­dards in sus­tain­abil­ity by in­te­grat­ing more nat­u­ral light through use of glass pan­elling, min­imis­ing en­ergy con­sump­tion and se­lect­ing fur­nish­ings that are en­vi­ron­men­tally friendly. Shaw Con­tract’s car­pet tiles which are com­pletely re­cy­clable and Cra­dle to Cra­dle Cer­ti­fied™, also con­trib­uted to the cred­its and pre­req­ui­sites set by LEED v4. De­signed as an open col­lab­o­ra­tive workspace, the Cen­ter is de­signed with­out walls. Dif­fer­ent spa­ces are marked out by mix­ing and com­bin­ing colour­ful car­pet tiles of Shaw Con­tract’s award-win­ning col­lec­tions. “Shaw Con­tract’s LEED cer­ti­fi­ca­tion for the Bengaluru show­room demon­strates tremen­dous green build­ing lead­er­ship, and how in­no­va­tive build­ing projects can use lo­cal so­lu­tions to make a global im­pact on the en­vi­ron­ment,” said P. Gopalakr­is­hana, MD, APAC & Mid­dle East Mar­ket, Green Busi­ness Cer­ti­fi­ca­tion Inc. Ear­lier in 2015, Shaw In­dus­tries’ state-of-the-art man­u­fac­tur­ing fa­cil­ity in Nan­tong, China, was awarded the LEED Sil­ver sta­tus in the New Con­struc­tion cat­e­gory.
