  • High efficient air conditioning system, Heat Recovery System, daylighting sensor and LED lighting are applied in the buildings. 

Water Use

  • Above 20% water saving though the use of high efficient and low flow devices.
  • More than 45% of fresh water can be saved by harvesting rainwater. 

Indoor Environmental Quality

  • Fresh air is increased by at least 30% for all normally occupied areas.
  • Adoption of low VOC paints and coatings.
  • Achieved Good Class Level in Indoor Air Quality Certificate Scheme

Innovations and Additions
