Comfort from every angle

The Multi Comfort concept is designed to deliver every kind of comfort, in any kind of building, anywhere in the world. And always in a sustainable and economical way.

Thermal Comfort

Multi Comfort buildings keep themselves at an optimal temperature using very little energy. They’re neither too hot nor too cold – so we can function comfortably, whatever we’re doing.

Visual Comfort

Multi Comfort buildings bring the outdoors in. They maximize daylight to create the right amount of light for specific tasks – whether it’s reading, performing surgery or working out at the gym.

Acoustic Comfort

Multi Comfort buildings have well-balanced sound environments. They actively protect us from unwanted exterior noise, and enhance those sounds that we do want to hear.

In 2010, Saint-Gobain decided to renovate its centre in Moscow to MULTICOMFORT standards.

Our existing building was transformed to include upgraded training facilities for construction industry professionals, as well as a new showroom space to showcase Saint-Gobain building solutions.

Highlights and challenges

The main challenge of this non-residential project was to complete the large-scale renovation to high standards, while adhering to a restricted budget.
