All for the client: Competence is realized in the interior by attention and care about comfort of customers, creation of eco-friendly environment and to improve quality and level of service in the office.
The interior is based on the principle of energy conservation and natural resource conservation in lighting: light control, motion and water detectors, water-saving plumbing, individual room temperature control and sensor analysis of energy consumption. Furniture from recycled materials is used in the interior and also novelties in eco-materials like salt panels being ionizer premises, absorbent panels that absorb toxic substances from the air.
