The Mobil House building is the head office of MJL Bangladesh Limited (formerly Mobil Jamuna Lubricants Limited), a joint venture between the state-owned Jamuna Oil Company and EC Securities Limited (a subsidiary of the East Coast Group) in Bangladesh. It is a LEED Platinum certified building with office spaces, meeting areas, and conference halls.
This LEED certification has been achieved by following an integrative approach that engaged all key contributors (clients, architects, engineers, energy specialists, and green building consultant) from the early design stage until post-occupancy. The inputs obtained from the varied team members at different stages helped the project achieve its sustainability goals and ensured that the building was efficient as well as cost-effective.
It’s features include sizable courtyards and building cut-outs that are populated with foliage and vertical gardens. The building uses 30% less energy and 50% less water, as compared to conventional office buildings in the region.
