SISD is an eco-friendly campus, meeting the highest standards of energy consumption. This benefits student well-being, providing a healthy and comfortable environment that supports learning and helps students achieve their full potential.
We have worked with various prestigious organisations to develop the first eve purpose built infrastructure in a desert climate to meet Minergie standards: EPFL (Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne), Sorane S.A., Archilab S.A. and Minergie.
The building is designed as a high-grade envelope with the best air tightness and the highest insulation standards, to reduce air loss as well as heat transfer, known as thermal bridge. At the same time, the light transmission is optimized to reduce electricity consumption. SISD is a pioneer in the development of a better educational environment.

In May 2018, SISD was awarded the DEWA Conservation award, in the category “Education establishment that implements Energy Efficacy Technologies”. This was achieved through compliance with the Swiss Minergie ecolabel, as well as implementation of Smixin water-saving hand-washing systems, which illustrate our efforts to conserve energy and water in school operations.
