Provis, Khidmah's UAE office wins Leed certification


The Abu Dhabi headquarters of Provis, a specialised estate management company, and Khidmah, a facilities management company, has been awarded the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Platinum Certification by the US Green Building Council.

Provis provides a suite of solutions including property consultancy and management, owners’ association consultancy and management, sales and leasing and clubhouse and lifestyle management services.

Khidmah, on the other hand, focuses on providing facilities management and home maintenance solutions across different sectors including residential, commercial, retail, government, education, hospitality and healthcare. Aldar Properties, owners of Khidmah and Provis, inaugurated the head office located in Yas Mall last year.

The joint head office received the highest level of points in LEED Interior Design and Construction (ID+C) Commercial Interiors certification in the GCC region, and the fourth company globally to achieve 90 points in the USGBC rating, across all sectors.

“Receiving the highest level of LEED accreditation in the region is truly an honor,” said Provis and Khidmah Chairman, Jassem Saleh Busaibe.

"Provis and Khidmah have adopted a series of international sustainability practices, built into their head office, that demonstrate how serious the two companies are about protecting the environment," he stated.  

"The ‘green features’ have been integrated into the head office to enhance the functionality and comfort levels of Provis and Khidmah employees, encourage engagement and enable them to provide a second to none customer experience and service," he added.

Provis CEO HP Aengaar said: "I am proud to have been part of this unique achievement and look forward to continue reducing the company’s environmental footprint by identifying various operational enhancements that are good for the eco-system, our employees, and for our business."

"With this certification, we can truly say that we are leading by example as we are providing a LEED certified headquarters for employees to thrive, increases efficiencies and contributes positively to the real-estate journey we promise our clients," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
