    It’s really amazing and this type of projects will save our nature and environment. Because rooftop photovoltaic panels on the first building and management apartments provide renewable energy for part of the school. While we’ve certainly seen greater commitments to sustainability, the Georges-Freche School of Hotel Management might just be the most beautiful of its kind.I think this type of projects should open in every country. I think we should support PALS because PALS is working for Waste management recycling and PALS is a group of environmentally conscious people who love pure air want to live in a cleaner.

    Please note that the skin is not of anodized aluminium, but of ALUCOBOND® composite panels in Anodized Look, which has a lacquered surface matching the EURAS standard !!!
