With this achievement, at IEN, we are looking forward to more and more existing buildings looking into existing building certification i.e. LEED v4.1 O+M which puts emphasis on real-time performance-oriented sustainable strategies and outcomes, and we are glad to be part of the movement of making existing building better performed in the area of energy, water, waste, and indoor experience.
