Sustainability

Constructing sustainable buildings

Understanding the significant impact buildings can have, we strive to demonstrate environmental responsibility and efficient resource use by upholding the highest standards of control over energy, water, carbon emissions and waste in all of our projects’ architectural and electromechanical designs. We are especially proud that Sky Office Park, our first Greenfield commercial complex, will be Egypt’s first LEED Gold certified building, providing sustainable office space in Cairo’s satellite city of Sheik Zayed.

Embracing best practices

LEEDS ECO’s specialized engineering and contracting services, which are provided for a wide range of projects in Egypt’s industrial and commercial sectors as well as for the country’s infrastructure projects, reflect international quality standards. LEEDS TFM is committed to international quality standards for building maintenance, using multiple proven disciplines to ensure the efficient functionality of any given environment. Notably, LEEDS was the contractor for Raya Offices in New Cairo, a commercial building that is a model for energy efficiency and sustainability. The company was also the contractor for Galleria 40 in Sheik Zayed, Egypt’s first green luxury commercial complex, home to a number of upscale international retail brands and fine dining restaurants.

At Drexel Oilfield Equipment, it’s safety first. Drexel aims to achieve the highest Quality, Health, Safety and Environmental (QHSE) standards, committed to minimizing risk and taking every practical measure to ensure the health and safety of all its employees, contractors and customers. The company recently introduced Drexel Safety Services, providing its clients with the installation, training and subsequent inspection/testing of Air Solutions, Gas Detection Solutions, Fire Protection, and Rescue Services.

Giving back to communities

Sky also seeks to have a sustainable impact on society at large. In our home country, our efforts are directed at ending hunger. Our Chairman Ayman Hussein was a founding member of the Egyptian Food Bank, a non-profit organization that specializes in fighting hunger. The Egyptian Food Bank (EFB) develops impactful programs with credible partners – be they individuals or corporations, in the public or private sectors – who want to help Egypt’s most vulnerable citizens. Through diverse and innovative programs, the EFB works to feed those incapable of working; teach skills to those who can work; and raise awareness of food waste.
