Consistently sustainable

As an independent, non-profit making association, the Turkish Contractors Association (TCA) represents the interests of the tradition-steeped Turkish construction industry. Turkish building contractors are well-known far beyond national borders and the TCA is one of the world’s most powerful associations in this area. The association consistently focuses on transparency and sustainability and, for this reason, designed its new headquarters in Ankara in compliance with the highest LEED certification requirements (Platinum).

In addition to a thermal labyrinth for climate control, the sun protection façade made from metallic mesh manufactured by GKD – GEBR. KUFFERATH AG (GKD) from Düren, Germany, makes a significant contribution to the sustainable building concept. The mesh, which is pulled taut in front of the glass façade, was designed with a different thickness on each side of the building. Adapted to the respective intensity of the sun in this way, it makes an important contribution towards achieving the LEED certification.
