Shell Gabon’s expansion programme called for extra personnel with extended state-of-the-art communication facilities and a modern updated feel. The current, recently-completed GML building in Libreville possessed all the necessary amenities, and will accommodate 180 staff over 4 floors.
In line with Shell’s commitment to the environment, the project will include green initiatives to support sustainability, operational efficiency and a positive impact on the local and global community.
Although it is not a requirement of the project to achieve USGBC LEED CI Silver certification, Shell Gabon will strive to uphold as many of these requirements as practically possible within the confines of the available office space.
The South African Green Star SA rating system, which was based on the LEED and BREEAM systems, will be used as a guide to achieve as much of these requirements as possible.
