The new Ducab headquarters will be environmentally responsive, built to achieve a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold certification when completed in 2019. The three-storey headquarters facility will have a total built-up area of 4,053 square metres, with a roof deck garden. Alongside its commitment to environmental conservatism, Ducab will echo the area’s indigenous plant life by creating a tree plantation alongside the facility.
