The Mauritius Commercial Bank (MCB) building located at St Jean / Ebène, designed by Mauritian architect Jean François Koenig, is finally ready.
A few hundred MCB employees will shift to the 10-story Green building by end of August. “The building is an architectural and ecological gem,” said Ryan Coopamah, head of Communication at MCB. He stressed that the MCB was keen to invest in the latest technologies for saving energy. Coopamah stated that the complex would use 32 per cent less energy than a conventional building of similar size.
“What matters is not the cost but the fact that we are achieving a specific objective in our commitment towards sustainable development,” said Coopamah.
Furniture, flooring materials will be largely made from recycled products.
