THE SUSTAINABLE DESIGN in its first stage serves to optimise the building envelope. By lessening the amount of glazed surfaces and by providing passive solar shading and a double-skin facade, the solar cooling demand was lowered by up to 50%, when compared to original design. The number and position of windows provides the office floor area with good daylight up to 80%.
The efficient water system reduces the drinking water usage by harvesting rainwater and recycling within the facility. For dehumidification, AHU units are used by Twin Wheel technology to exchange rates with controlled humidity. The high efficiency four pipe fan-coil system significantly reduces energy demand, while the facade integrates photovoltaic thin film or panels as the main source of renewable energy.
