Saint-Gobain’s First Multi Comfort House in the Middle East Breaks Ground at Masdar City

Rejula ARUN - 13-mai-2018 16:15:41
Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, May 13, 2018: French multinational Saint-Gobain has broken ground on its first Multi Comfort House in the Middle East at Masdar City, Abu Dhabi’s flagship sustainable urban community. In the presence of HE Dr Thani bin Ahmed Al Zeyoudi, UAE Minister of Climate Change and Environment and Ludovic Pouille, French Ambassador to the UAE, Pierre-André de Chalendar, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Saint-Gobain, and Mohamed Jameel Al Ramahi, CEO of Masdar (Abu Dhabi Future Energy Company), conducted today’s foundation stone laying ceremony. The Multi Comfort House at Masdar City is one of 30 similar projects around the world. It is the first in the Middle East and a hot region anywhere in the world. On completion at the end of next year, it will demonstrate Saint-Gobain’s patented technology aimed at improving health and well-being by optimizing the human experience within the built environment. According to the Multi-Comfort philosophy, homes that are more comfortable make for happier and more productive people, and are more sustainable as a result.  A world leader in the habitat and construction sector, Saint-Gobain will further increase its UAE presence through the Multi Comfort House, as well as raise awareness of its innovative solutions addressing the challenges of sustainable construction, resource efficiency and climate change. “The UAE is a reference in construction development,”’ said Pierre-André de Chalendar, Chairman and CEO of Saint-Gobain, one of the world’s top 100 industrial groups. “It is building excellence, represented through Masdar City, is a role model for all, and Saint-Gobain is proud to be part of it.” He added: “Feeling good in a building is about having the perfect amount of light, the proper level of sound, the ideal temperature and a constant supply of fresh air. It is about design and technology, beauty and safety, efficiency and sustainability. This is precisely what Saint-Gobain can provide and demonstrate through this state-of-the-art Multi Comfort House to be constructed at Masdar City.”    A “greenprint” for sustainable urban development, Saint-Gobain considered Masdar City the natural location to highlight its expertise in comfortable and sustainable home living. “It is a privilege to receive the chairman and CEO of one of France’s most prestigious companies at Masdar City, and to partner with Saint-Gobain in realizing its first Multi-Comfort House in the Middle East,” said Masdar CEO Mohamed Jameel Al Ramahi. “Our towns and cities consume around two-thirds of the world’s energy and account for more than 70 per cent of global carbon emissions. At the same time, the way our homes and offices are designed impacts our health, well-being and quality of life significantly.” “Saint-Gobain’s Multi-Comfort philosophy reinforces our own concept of sustainable urban development, which is based on the three pillars of economic, social and environmental sustainability,” added Al Ramahi. “It also complements the Eco-Villa prototype opened at Masdar City last year, conceived as a template for affordable and highly energy- and water-efficient residential villas in the UAE. We look forward to further collaboration with Saint-Gobain in commercial sustainable real estate as we continue on our journey to realize the world’s most sustainable urban community here at Masdar City.”  Saint-Gobain will build the 400-square-metre Multi Comfort House on a 2,200-square-metre site next to the Masdar City Eco-Villa. On completion, it will serve as both a Multi Comfort “experience centre” and an office for Saint-Gobain employees, while also providing training in the company’s products and solutions. It will be fully adapted to the UAE climate.   The German architecture and engineering consultancy Obermeyer will design and supervise construction of the project, expected to open by the end of 2019. Saint-Gobain first developed the concept of Multi Comfort construction in 2004. It covers the four dimensions of light, air quality, temperature and acoustics within the home, as well as tertiary buildings such as shops, offices and public buildings. -Ends- About Masdar City Abu Dhabi’s Masdar City is one of the world’s most sustainable developments.

NATURAL COSMETICS INSPIRED BY THE ROYAL COURT IN FRANCE, AT BWME 2018

Rejula ARUN - 30-avr.-2018 08:22:20
United Arab Emirates, 30 April 2018 : Mademoiselle Saint Germain is the first brand of cosmetics to use ingredients exclusively from France, and to contain active plant extracts from the King’s Kitchen Garden at the Palace of Versailles. It draws on centuries-old beauty secrets to create simply formulated products free of any controversial ingredients. Users are delighted by the brand’s skincare products, not only because of the stories they tell and the quality they exude, but also because of their authenticity. Mademoiselle Saint Germain is the realization of a project dreamed up by two pharmacists in Versailles, one of whom has a keen interest in history and the other in cosmetics. While exploring the town’s historical heritage, they discovered some age-old beauty secrets that inspired them to create their own skincare lines. Made in France & Made of France Besides manufacturing its products in France, Mademoiselle Saint Germain is special in that its ingredients are sourced exclusively from French suppliers. Between 92 and 98% of the ingredients in its products are either grown or made in France, and 92 to 99% are natural. A partner, the King’s Kitchen Garden Another defining feature of the brand is its naturalness. Each product is a celebration of the plant kingdom and contains a high proportion of plants from the King’s Kitchen Garden, which was built at the request of Louis XIV and is listed as a historic monument and an outstanding natural area. Its gardeners continue to grow a broad variety of plants to this day. The King’s Kitchen Garden produces exceptionally high-quality plants in soil free from fertilizers, pesticides and weed killers, and therefore testifies to the botanical perfection of the Mademoiselle Saint Germain brand. Traditional but highly innovative cosmetics Mademoiselle Saint Germain draws inspiration from centuries-old recipes because, in the past, cosmetics contained only a few, freshly harvested ingredients. The brand therefore produces unique cosmetic products with modern galenic formulations, simple formulas, and no controversial ingredients. Mademoiselle Saint Germain is working closely with the King’s Kitchen Garden to reintroduce historical plants for use in new products. As a result, a formerly extinct variety of cucumber - the white Bonneuil - was recently reintroduced and is at the spearhead of its new ‘Revitalizing’ line. So, you really can feel like a princess for a change… From May 8 to 10 2018, MADEMOISELLE SAINT GERMAIN is exhibiting in the France Pavilion of Business France – the national agency supporting international development of the French economy – at Beautyworld Middle East in Dubai - S2 E30 Contact: MADEMOISELLE SAINT GERMAIN 1 rue Édouard Charton – 78000 VERSAILLES - FRANCE Charles CRACCO – CEO & co-founder Tel: +33 9 52 57 60 96 Mobile: +33 6 83 99 99 33 charles@mademoisellesaintgermain.com www.mademoisellesaintgermain.com
