The new headquarters has been nominated for LEED® GOLD LEED® level certification. The acronym stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, and represents the world's most popular recognition of building energy and environmental performance. It is a voluntary measuring system, designed to evaluate both new and existing commercial, tertiary and residential buildings. The new Corporate Management Centre has adhered to the stipulations of the LEED® protocol, from selection of the site through to design, execution (which recovered 80% of the rubble) and post-employment monitoring. The building is designed to maximise the comfort of the people at Lavazza, save energy and cut the use of drinking water. The evaluation criteria are divided into prerequisites and credits. Prerequisites are minimum requirements to be respected to obtain any level of LEED® certification. Credits allow you to obtain a score based on what determines the level of certification: base, silver, gold and platinum.
The new Lavazza Corporate Management Centre aims to achieve the gold level, under the LEED® Italia 2009 standard for new constructions and renovations.
