Dr. Lutfi Kirdar Kartal Training and Research Hospital

The Kartal Hospital, located in Istanbul, has received a preliminary EDGE certificate.

Dr. Lutfi Kirdar Kartal Training and Research Hospital


The Dr. Lutfi Kirdar Kartal Training and Research Hospital is a multi-wing healthcare facility with 800 inpatient and 200 outpatient beds. The 13-floor public hospital is operated by the Turkish Ministry of Health with three wings: Clinics and Administration, Diagnostic and Treatment, and Inpatient Wards.

Located in the Kartal district of Istanbul, the hospital’s resource-efficient design allows it to save money on operational costs and funnel more funds into patient care. The hospital has energy-efficient air conditioning, preheated water using waste heat from generators and energy-saving lighting to conserve energy. Features such as low-flow faucets and water-efficient landscaping also reduce water usage. The hospital’s sustainable design saves over 2,000 tCO2 per year.

The hospital was developed by the Istanbul Project Coordination Unit (IPCU) Governorship of Istanbul, a unit of Istanbul’s government founded in 2006 to improve the city’s earthquake preparedness. Since Istanbul lies on a major fault zone, the unit mitigates seismic risk through retrofitting and constructing new public buildings that are built to withstand a potential earthquake. The Dr. Lufti Kirdar Kartal Training and Research Hospital is a product of the Turkish government’s belief that sustainable buildings should be built to withstand both earthquakes and climate change.

In addition to building a structurally sound and environmentally-friendly building, the hospital offers many recreational spaces designed to improve patient well-being. The hospital also contains study rooms, libraries and labs to foster continued training and research for young doctors. The hospital has received final EDGE certification from thinkstep-SGS.

MINT Caglayan

Developed as an urban regeneration project by Hun Perakende Enerji ve Inşaat A.S. and designed by AS/OS Architects, MİNT Çağlayan is a high-rise residential building comprised of 129 one, two and three-bedroom apartments in the heart of Istanbul. The property responds to the demand from residents with environmentally-sensitive urban lifestyles.

Created in 2014, the MİNT brand is comprised of projects that are deliberately positioned in the center of the city. The intention is to transform urban environments through differentiated properties that maintain the highest international level of quality and sustainability. A conscientious approach is taken throughout each project’s lifecycle, from the re-cycling of waste during the construction process straight through to providing electric cars with charging stations for residents to rent.

MİNT Çağlayan features carefully controlled glazing with high-performance glass that maximizes natural daylight while restricting the energy required for heating and cooling. Other solutions include LED lighting and water-efficient fixtures. Each household is expected to realize estimated utility cost reductions ranging up to US$26 per month. The building is built of autoclaved aerated concrete blocks, a material that is superior for its low embodied energy.

Beyond the utility savings, residents enjoy easy access to public transportation as well as MİNT Çağlayan’s proximity to medical, commercial, educational and historical facilities such as Istanbul Çağlayan Justice Palace.

MİNT Çağlayan has received final EDGE certification from GBCI.
