Merdeka 118 First Mega-Tall Building Awarded LEED Certification

The Merdeka 118 tower is the first building in Malaysia to be awarded the prestigious Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Platinum certification in the LEED v2009 Core & Shell rating system.

LEED certification acknowledges a project’s compliance with the criteria outlined in the LEED rating system, established and upheld by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). The certification programme is overseen by Green Business Certification Inc. (GBCI).

PNBMV Chief Executive Officer Tengku Dato’ Ab. Aziz Tengku Mahmud said that the LEED Platinum certification marks the first milestone in Merdeka 118’s journey to become Malaysia’s first triple-green platinum rated mega-tall building.

Merdeka 118 said it is also targeting Platinum certification from Green Real Estate (GreenRE) and Green Building Index (GBI). It is also in line to  obtain WELL certification from the International WELL Building Institute Asia Pacific supporting the wellbeing of the tenants and the wider community.

The development is linked by 4 acres of landscaped greenery and open spaces known as ‘Merdeka Boulevard at 118’. These assets sit adjacent to Malaysia’s two national landmarks – Stadium Negara and Stadium Merdeka – where the country’s independence was officially declared in 1957.
