Formerly called the Geneva Executive Centre (GEC), it regrouped some international organisations which worked in the environment sector, as well as some UN services. As the Host State, Switzerland felt it necessary to find a solution to the lack of space which threatened the smooth functioning of these organisations based in Geneva. Bought by the Confederation in 1993, the GEC has since been given over to the FIPOI who owns it and renamed it “International Environment House 1 (IEH1)”.

In 2005 a competition for sanitation ideas was launched by the FIPOI in order to renovate the air conditioning which was no longer in line with norms, and to review the building regulations, since the building was no longer conforming to regulation. Our aim was to improve energy production. The work was carried out between 2007 and 2009, and the building was given a MINERGIE RENOVATION rating.
