Property Services Company Moves to 1st LEED-Certified Building

Manila Bulletin, 07-04-2012

KMC MAG Group will move to a larger and more eco-friendly office at the Bonifacio Global City (BGC). The company's new address will be the Sun Life Centre, a newly constructed 15-story building which is the country's first LEED Gold Certified for Core and Shell (for design and construction) building.

LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design and was developed by the US Green Building Council to provide third-party verification that a building or community is designed and built to save energy, use water more efficiently, reduce carbon dioxide emissions, improve the indoor air environment and use resource-sensitive products.

The KMC MAG Group's new office will have a total size of 1,350 sqm and will integrate all its offices into one efficient and sustainable eco-friendly environment. The new headquarters will be on the 11th floor while their premium business center will be located at the 8th.

The country's first LEED Business Center, also managed by KMC MAG Group, offers 120 workstations with all private external facing rooms that can accommodate six to 40 employees. This is one of the few business centers which offer external views for every room.

The Business Center will be opened by the first week of July after the company completes its transfer.

"Our employees spend most of their workdays in the office, hence having facilities where people feel comfortable is our company's priority," said Yves Luethi, VP for Marketing of KMC MAG Group.

"With zonal air conditioning and fresh air with carbon dioxide monitors among others, the building's unique environmental features increase the productivity of our team members and our organization."

Throughout the years, the company has achieved award-winning recognition in providing BPO office solutions for foreign and local companies as well as seat-leasing and serviced office services for companies that are expanding or setting up operations in Metro Manila.
