    the metal plates and grillwork adorning the reception areas;
  • The use of new materials (adhesives, paints,
    carpeting, composites, plaster) and furnishings that contain recycled materials, are recyclable, non-toxic and emit no volatile organic compound;

  • stops and equipped with a secured bicycle hangar and locker rooms, allowing users to take advantage of alternate means of transportation;

    water consumption;
