Turkey’s First Green Public Building in Küçükçekmece
Turkey’s first green public building is now ready to open : Küçükçekmece Municipality Building in İstanbul. Mayor Aziz Yeniay says that he is very excited to start serving the people of Küçükçekmece and added “the building will generate its own energy and will be environmental friendly. With our savings in water, power and others, the building will be returning the investment in 3 years”
Yeniay also indicated that the materials used in the building are natural and recyclable “With the use of digital archiving systems, we will be using paper at a minimum level during bureaucratic processes. The rain water – which will be collected in the 250 m3 cistern at the top of the roof- will be used for irrigation. Ice storage system will produce ice during cheapest electricity hours and ice will be used for cooling in the air conditioning system during hot summer days. Solar panels will be used for heating the water on a surface of 100m2. Photovoltaic modules will also be installed at the roof-top in a very near future”
