BIG C NINH BINH
> LOTUS CERTIFICATION
UrbanGreen lead the LOTUS certification process, where we coordinated the architect, MEP and Structural engineering, and Cx teams and was in charge of documentation process. BIG C Ninh Binh is a 3 storied stand-alone Retail Anchor. Multi-functional and multi-tenant, its shell consists of almost opaque envelope, with limited fenestrations and no sky-lights. The service core consists of 3 travelators, 5 staircases, 2 good lifts, and no passenger lift. Daily operation of the facility requires 2 work shifts. The building consists of a tight envelope and a HVAC system that earns the project an innovation point. HVAC is of ice-stockade type, composed of Chillers, AHU, FCU, and Ice Store. VAV boxes apply for shops, restaurants, kiots, common areas, and office. Refrigerants are HFC-134a. Waste water is treated locally, and together with rainwater is used for irrigation and cleaning. 28% energy is saved and another 50% portable water is conserved. The Project achieves LOTUS Silver certificate.
