Bouygues Turkmen Headquarters

Ashgabat, Turkmenistan

The 1st LEED certified building in Turkmenistan

The new head office of Bouygues Turkmen delivered in 2011 is a landmark project in terms of sustainability: it has achieved LEED Gold certification, therefore becoming the “greenest” building in Turkmenistan.
This new head office covers a total surface area of 7,044 m² over five levels. One of its most striking features is its cutting-edge architecture, and in particular its façade, composed of alternating sections of glass and marble. A double wall, incorporating a space for trees and shrubs to grow, limits the impact of the sun and allows the complete integration of the construction within its environment.
Environmental performance

Various systems for improved energy performance have also been used: highly efficient façades, intelligent lighting and green roofs on top of the plant rooms, energy-saving bathroom fittings, a reversible heat pump for heating and air-conditioning, the use of "green" materials. Thanks to these devices, the project scored 66 points on the LEED scale, and reached the Gold level of certification.
