We have also installed photovoltaic systems on the roof and in the facade of the building." It is estimated that we will save 65% of our energy costs per year.

Every building material was designed with recycling in mind – the cafeteria will only serve organic products and a relaxing patient garden has been laid out, next to it a kindergarten.
