STORY SCRIPT:

The inauguration of Olympic House will be the culmination of a journey that started back in 2012 when the IOC decided to move ahead with the consolidation of its head office.

The state of the art construction has been hailed as a “milestone for global green building” having achieved the highest possible award for the LEED international green building programme.

According to the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), the organisation that developed LEED, Olympic House has received the most points (93) of any LEED v4-certified new construction project to date.

In addition to receiving the LEED Platinum certification, Olympic House is the first international headquarters – and the second building overall – to obtain the highest (Platinum) level of the Swiss Sustainable Construction Standard (SNBS). It has also been awarded the Swiss standard for energy-efficient buildings, Minergie P. Olympic House is the first building to receive these three certifications, and the first in Switzerland to achieve LEED v4 Platinum.
