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 Viet Tri is a 2 storied stand-alone Retail Anchor. Its shell consists of almost opaque envelope, with few fenestrations and no sky-lights. The service core consists of 0 travelator, 2 staircases, 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.
